5 Reasons Why Every Family Needs A Legacy Video
The holidays are known as the time of year for gathering together and appreciating time as a family, but what if you could experience the joy of being together all year long? With a legacy video, you can watch some of your family’s most special moments throughout the entire year, all from the comfort of your home. If you’re still unsure if a legacy film is a valuable investment, continue reading to find out 5 reasons why a legacy video is the perfect investment for your family!
1. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
With medical advancements and an overall longer life expectancy, it’s easy to feel like no matter what happens, we are promised a tomorrow. It can be all too easy to expect (and want) your family members to live long, healthy lives, but no matter the age, no one is guaranteed more time. Today is a great time to start planning to document and capture all of your family’s special moments, unique interactions, and heritage with a legacy video.
2. Don’t wait to appreciate family members until it’s too late.
Similarly, the amount of time you have left to spend with and learn from relatives is not guaranteed. It’s common to spend time thinking about the past and your family’s heritage after one has passed, but a legacy video encourages you to think about your family while all, or most, are still here. Your living family members have hours of stories to tell, most of which you’ve likely never heard. Having a legacy video filmed of your family sharing these special stories will allow you to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of where you and your family members come from.
3. Every family has a unique story.
While you’ve likely heard stories of how your family came to be, do you know the details? Do you know the story of how your grandparents almost didn’t meet, or of the sacrifices your great uncle made to ensure a better future for your family? One thing we love about legacy videos are those certain details of a family’s heritage revealed through the words of a relative. Once the realization hits that a thousand different situations had to happen to allow you, your siblings, and your children to be standing here today, the story of your entire family becomes infinitely more significant.
4. It lasts forever.
Want to be able to tell your future kids the heartwarming stories of their heritage? With a legacy video, your family members’ unique stories and personalities will be captured on film forever. You no longer have to worry about preserving every detail of your family’s heritage on your own; with a legacy video, your entire family will come together to explain how the lineage came to be. Even if your family is spread out all over the world, having a legacy video will allow you to press play any time you’re missing that important family time.
5. A video shows what a picture can not.
Want to remember the sound of your grandfather’s hearty laugh or the look in your grandmother’s eyes? The most important details of your family members can quickly get lost behind the lens of a camera. A video allows you to preserve the memories of your family member’s unique mannerisms, voices, expressions, and personalities forever. A legacy video also helps you to remember your family’s dynamics through watching relatives interact on the screen. While family portraits are a great tangible keepsake to have, a legacy video can show so much more of your family’s distinctive personality.
At the end of the day, the most important part of life is who you share your time with. With busy schedules and seemingly unending responsibilities, it’s easy to get distracted from spending time with those who matter most: your loved ones. As we head into 2018, consider showing your family members how much you care for them and respect your heritage with a legacy video. Ask us about our legacy video services today!
