“People print photos of truly special moments in their lives,” said Harvis Kramer, President of the business.

Kramer said the business wants to use what’s best to preserve these moments for people living with dementia.

When you see that picture in a book, in a canvas, whatever it may be, it creates a moment for you, you go back to that event, back to that memory and it will create an emotional feedback within you,” he says.

That’s why they decided to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association and give away 50 free memory books. A way to take a person back to a point in time.

“The moment where you are having a moment and it is so important to you that you decide to take out your camera and take a picture, the whole idea is that you want to preserve that moment forever, that is beauty of photography,” said Marketing Director Lisa Foreman.

For someone trying to remember, a photo can spark their memory.

Ellen Torres, Development Director of the Alzheimer’s Association.

It names a face and serves as a reminder of the story behind them.

“As people move to the next stage in life, we want to be able to document what happened before that, so it’s just a great reflection of that person’s life, they are who, who connected with them and it’s just a beautiful way for us to celebrate that,” said Torres.
