Best Holiday Gifts From The Grandparents
Preserving Your Past with Presents
Skip the gift cards and clothes this year. YURU Studio is offering a gift opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else! YURU Studio caters exclusively to seniors and gives them the chance to share, and save, their stories for generations to come. Eric and Marci Adams work to ensure that seniors’ legacies are upheld and cherished through their innovative YURU experience.
It all starts with an interview where they discuss what makes you, you. In fact, that’s what they stand for. YURU (Why You Are You) is obsessed with revealing seniors’ true selves and capturing it in breathtaking photos and videos. Participants are asked questions regarding their history, values, life lessons they’ve learned, and other topics relevant to their life. The YURU team creates a welcoming and secure atmosphere that allows participants to feel comfortable before jumping in front of the camera.
Next will be the photo and video portion where seniors will be able to capture their voice, stories, emotions, and personality, in a unique video memoir and photographs. The YURU team works with the participant to bring out the authentic emotions provoked from their storytelling and captures their life history during their recording session. Their goal is to capture all the sides of your personality and get real expressions that illustrate the real you. The video is then edited to flow as one seamless story.
In an intimate reveal session, participants are able to view their video and photos. Here is where they see their legacies captured and memorialized for the first time. From there, it can be spread among family and friends as a way to cherish ones’ life story and ensure it continues on for generations. What else could someone want?
This unique way of preserving history can be a perfect present for anyone in your family. Maybe you’d like to participate and share your story with your children and grandchildren. Or maybe you’d like to make it for your siblings as a way to remember mom or dad. The possibilities are endless and the YURU team is available to work with you and your stories. Regardless of who they are for, these photos and videos are guaranteed to be a present they won’t forget. Our aging population is moving quickly and if you don’t act fast, you might miss your opportunity to preserve it while you can. Make an appointment for a free consultation and get camera ready!
