The Untold Story

OUR SERVICES

We make it easy for you to bring your story to life.

Creating a Life Story Book can be a positive, joyful experience of discovery and understanding, of achievement and purpose. It doesn’t need to be an overwhelming, complex, time consuming endeavour, and it certainly doesn’t need to be something that will dull or diminish the memory of the book.

Our team is skilled at making the process seamless. At providing empathy, sensitivity and respect in the hard times, and also joy and celebration in the good times.

We take the overwhelm and pressure out of the process, and help you capture your history and stories in one of our beautiful bespoke Life Story Books.

A range of options
to suit your budget

We believe you can’t put a price on love. The time, and attention to detail in creating ‘Life Story Books’ is paramount to the process and is reflected in our prices.

But we also understand that we are all living in challenging times and that most of us don’t have much financial room to move. That’s why we have created four packages to suit every person and budget, and we have filled as much value into each of the packages as we possibly could!

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.


CREATE A LEGACY OF FAMILY STORIES

CREATE A LEGACY OF FAMILY STORIES

Chances are you remember some of the stories of your parents’ or grandparents’ childhood Of their teenage years. Their first job. How they met. Highs and lows.

Or perhaps there are some memories you’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 history, of our stories 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 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.

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.
