"I am loving all my photos now that I can view them so effortlessly!! You gave us a huge gift, your visit put me in a very happy mood yesterday. It’s so wonderful to be gone with the clutter of all our photos and have easily organized events throughout the years. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my family, I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into it. I can’t wait to share it with the girls when they get back home. You’ve really done the heavy lifting, something that would have taken me months to do and possibly never actually complete!"

“Laura has a really special set of skills, and an absolutely tremendous brain. No one else could organize ‘Illig World’ like she has and remember every detail of my photo collection. My photos have been lost and buried for 40 years, and now I am finally getting to enjoy them again. What she has done for me is absolutely priceless.”
— Dale Illig
“Oh, what a wonderful trip back in time looking at these early photos of the family. You have saved all the memories for us, and we can’t thank you enough. I can't wait to see the other albums on our website, and to view them with my family. What a treat!”

“Memory Forward did such a fantastic job with digitizing my family's large stack of scrapbooks! Laura and her team did a thorough and timely job for me, and they carefully preserved labels and captions of all of the memorabilia. I highly recommend Memory Forward for all of your photo projects.”

“Holy moly...what fantastic work. I was SUPER skeptical about giving my precious photos to a random stranger, but I needn’t have worried. Laura categorized all my photos beautifully. She also figured things out all by herself, was prompt, and was extremely responsive with her communication. I can’t recommend her enough.”

“My family were alternatively entranced, blown away by, laughing, and tearful about the books. Although we had all seen all of the pictures, the most spoken phrase was – I hadn’t seen THAT picture before. I think it was the way they were divided up and arranged that brought all of them to life. They also loved the colours and the way you enhanced the original handwriting on them.”

“This was the BEST gift to myself. My previous way of organizing my photos was chaotic, and I was starting to get nervous about potentially losing my son’s baby pictures. Laura and her team came in and organized over a decade’s worth of digital photos (from multiple devices) into my own visual, digital library. She also provided excellent instructions for me to continue the maintenance on my own. Laura was a really nice person to work with and went above and beyond to make sure my project went smoothly and that I was 100% satisfied with the end result.”

“I had a few albums with photos from the 1970’s and wanted to preserve them, as well as make additional copies of the albums for my father. Laura worked with me to place all the pictures in chronological order, retouch some damaged and faded images, and organize them into two absolutely beautiful heirloom printed volumes. I presented the albums to my dad for Christmas, and he could not hold back tears as he looked at pictures of his parents (long since passed) and of my sister and me as little girls. It was an absolutely priceless gift, and I cannot thank Laura enough for everything she did to bring this joy to our family.”

“Laura was able to take thousands of photographs and pieces of memorabilia that came to her in a jumbled mess, and work her magic on all of it! She saved our family history and made it possible to share it amongst multiple families. She is amazing, gracious, respectful, hard-working, conscientious, and is a technical guru. She also has the greatest memory of photos ever and I am constantly amazed at how I can ask her if she’s seen a photo before and she knows the answer right away.”
— Margaret H.
"I have been slowly watching our videos, I want to delay my gratification and extend the delightful surprise they are to watch and go down memory lane. It’s been such a special treat and like a time machine transporting me to my past! Amazing. Thank you again for all your FABULOUS work!"
— Lisa B.
“What Laura was able to do with my disorganized digital photos was like if someone had come in and cleaned and organized my whole house all at once. Everything feels so accessible and tidy now, and the overwhelming feeling has been lifted. What a relief!”
