Growing up we didn’t have a video or photo camera, so many memories of my childhood are only the visions I’ve played (or heard) over and over again in my head. So after the traumatic first months of my son’s life, my parents gifted us a video camera. We had all learned first-hand that life is too precious to just let go by, especially when you might only have a few days to create memories. No longer would we have to try to remember the moments of our children’s childhood, we could capture them for the future to remember and relive again and again.
Since then several years of videos have been recorded, but hadn’t been played back. The videos were full of Christmas mornings, school concerts and birthday candles and since my kids are still young and I could remember the memories, it didn’t seem necessary to press play – only record. Until I watched them (with the help of YesVideo.)
During our family’s young history, we’ve had lost two grandmothers, one great grandfather, my beautiful aunt and many friends had left us. And while none of my videos weren’t of those beloved family members, they were during the times they were still alive.
Like the second Christmas of my son where grandma and grandpa both were on the “first row” to see their kids, grandkids and great grandkids open up their gifts. Now watching the video, we can relive the moment of the two of them together – especially for grandma who now has to experience Christmas holding on to our hands instead of grandpa’s.
While our video skills have thankfully gotten better since these videos, just being able to relive the sounds, the sights and the memory, is sometimes exactly what you need to have another moment with someone you didn’t know you wouldn’t have. For 15 years YesVideo has helped families protect and share generations of memories, and we are now the largest and most trusted home movies transfer service worldwide. You can have your VHS tapes, camcorder tapes, movie film reels and 35mm slides converted to video by placing your order directly online or at the photo counter of any Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart or CVS/pharmacy. And you can also send a part of your video to family and friends as a Hallmark Moment video or Facebook. The process is super easy using YesVideo: YesVideo’s process is very safe and secure. They handle customers’ memories as if they were their own. Their Memory Factory contains surveillance cameras at every stage, and digital copies of the transferred videos are archived for added security. Home movie memories make a special and unique holiday gift. While orders typically take 3-4 weeks to complete, please allow extra time as Holiday season is a very busy time in the Memory Factory.
