Pictures, those printed or digital images that capture a special
moment of your life or the life of someone you love. Pictures can tell our stories, they can capture our
memories; they keep someone alive in our memory forever. With the addition of film or video clips we can add
movement and the sounds of that moment. Now your wedding day, your baby's first steps, your child’s school
play, are caught for all time for you to live over and over again. Tears of Joy Video takes all those special
moments you have captured and create ways for you to share and keep those memories safe forever. This is what
we can do for you.
The first step is to make sure all your pictures are archived and organized for safekeeping, for
sharing with family and friends, and for using in creating your family stories. This means taking your captured
memories and bringing them into the 21st century. We scan your pictures, slides, negatives, and important documents. We transfer
your home movie films or videotaped films and can create them into formats you can upload to the Internet and share
with family. We can also take you cassette tapes that you created voice recordings of family and create them into
mp3 digital formats.
Once you have these created into digital formats, you can add in
the pictures and video you have taken recently with digital cameras or smart phones.
Today with digital cameras, and smart phones the number of
pictures you have is only limited to the amount of storage space you have. If you have a large amount of
storage your pictures may stay on your camera or phone for years, but not in any organized way. When it comes
to bringing up a particular picture it may take you a while to find it.
Tears of Joy Video can teach you an organized system to create an archive of all your pictures
for safekeeping. This system will help you to be able to locate your
pictures and label them so you can know when it was taken and who is in the picture.
Once your pictures are organized in a system, future pictures and video clips can be added as
they are taken. You can also record video clips of you or family members telling stories about the pictures or
event and add it into the file. You now will have all the elements to create your stories into montages,
biographies or story books.
Creating Your Family Stories
Video Montage and Biographies
Our main focus since 2005 is creating your stories on video or DVD. Whether it is with a montage
of pictures and video clips to music and titles; or a more elaborate biography video with recorded stories from
your loved one or from friends and family with pictures. These videos make your pictures come alive. They become
valued keepsakes of family stories that can be treasured long after your family member is no longer with
Montages can also be used to share a story at a happy occasion
like a wedding, an anniversary, a graduation or other milestone in your loved ones life. Take a look at

Now that your pictures are in digital format we can help you create a printed story of your
family or family member. These can be picture books with captions or you can write down your story and designate
the pictures to go with them. Now your pictures are no longer just your memories, but they are written document of
your life that family members can enjoy for years. This is also an excellent way to create a family tree. If you
have access to family
stories and how relatives are related, you can create a book that
outlines this to help your family know where they came from. You have now become your family historian for future
Storybooks are also great for grown children. You can
record your memories of their upbringing along with their pictures to give them a printed book of their
These books also make great ways to create family albums: Your baby book, family yearbooks, your
child’s sports pictures or displaying your children or grandchildren’s art or school work. If your child is
learning to read, have us create a book about them with a story about them. We can even use Photoshop to put your
child into the picture with their favorite super hero or Disney princess. Do you have family recipes you wish to
share with your children? Why not create a family cookbook, with recipes and pictures of your dish and a picture of
the family member who shared the recipe?
Printed books with pictures will always we cherished. Unlike photo
albums, the pages stay nice, the pictures don’t come out and it takes less space as you can fit in one book
what takes 3 albums to hold.
