CAPTURING LIFE

The Untold Story

The days of being a young mother, with babies filling your bed and your heart, are heavenly. Those wonderous years when you feel as though you are in a cocoon with your children are a gift. And in those moments, the most important thing is to be present.

But though they are long, they are also fleeting. And one day, you will look back with longing. In those bittersweet moments, the memories of the cocoon you were in with your baby will fill your cup with joy.

And then the toddlers stage arrives. Toddlers are perhaps the truest reflection of life itself, the ability to talk, walk, interact, but with utterly no self-awareness. Toddlers will fill your home with chaos, but also with deep, long cuddles. Chaotic bundles of love discovering life.

It will be fast, it will be furious. And in your final years, the toddler years are the stuff of memories that will make you laugh long into the night.

When your babies slowly become adults, in those teenage years, you will be torn between wanting them to grow but also wanting them to stay with you forever. It is bittersweet to walk side by side someone whose hand you held for so long. Pride and wonder take over trepidation and soon watching your child walk out into the world will be the proudest moments of your life.

We need to live in these moments, always live in the moment. But also save this stuff. Save it for later, store it away, so we can drink from this cup whenever we need, all throughout life.

The stories, the bloopers, the joys and the trials need to be captured. Take photos and videos and keep drawings and scribbles. For you are the keeper of this history.

And when you are older, and your days are shorter, you will look back, flick the pages, and remember.

Let us help you keep these memories. www.theuntoldstory.com.au


OLDER GENERATIONS

Who will remember your story

We have enough stuff, what we don’t have is enough stories

Chances are your family knows some of your stories. They might know the big moments or those moments they’ve been a part of. But what about the untold stories they don’t know.

Maybe it’s memories from your childhood that shaped you. Maybe it’s your teenage years. Your first job. Your first love. Your first-hand experience of times in history that perhaps you’ve alluded to but never really captured or spoken about.

Or perhaps there are some memories they’re not aware of. Sights, evocative smells, taste, desires, fears and more.

Now consider what it would mean to capture those stories, that history, not just for you but for future generations.

The gift of your story is a priceless gift that is so much more precious than ‘stuff’ yet too often we don’t think to record it until it’s too late. Many of us also either don’t have the time or perhaps we’re not sure what questions to ask of ourselves to discover these untold stories.

That’s what we at The Untold Story is all about. Helping you capture, record and commemorate for future generations, your family stories.

FAMILY BUSINESS

Don’t lose the stories in your family business

Family-owned businesses are rich in stories and history. However, as time passes, those stories are forgotten, they pass away with the founder or perhaps they’re known by owners but not shared with your customers.

Storytelling is a powerful way to engage with your customers. To develop trust, connection and to help them resonate with the human side of business.

So many business owners are looking for a story to tell when the answer lies within their history. The trouble is you’re too busy in your business to spend time drawing out the stories and writing them down, perhaps you’re not a storyteller yourself or you don’t know what stories to draw out. Let us do that for you.

CHILDREN'S EARLY YEARS

Don’t wait until you start to forget as your children will one day want to know answers to many questions that were sometime ago.

We also see so much joy in the world! The birth of new babies, the wobbly first steps of a toddler, their momentous first tooth and the Christmas morning overwhelm. We see the waves of exhaustion and elation for new parents, the awe and the love, the delicate movements and careful cradling. So many precious moments and experiences that are fleeting, they are innately limited, and that is what makes them so sweet! They are not things you can hold on to, those experiences cannot be recreated as we age.

But we can capture them, capture the moments, the still images, the recollection of the sounds, tastes, smells, feelings. We can capture it all while the memories are still close. And we can save them for you in a beautiful book that you can treasure and cradle long after the children have grown and flown. Investing in the moments and memories now will be something you will be endlessly grateful for when you are older, and wiser, and long for those vivid memories
and moments.

Capturing a life in a tangible way can be utterly unique, it can be for solemn reasons, for joy and happiness, for love and laughter. The WHY is limitless. The only important question you need to ask is when.
