Stories of a Life 

"In the end, we'll all become stories." (Margaret Atwood)


Document the stories of your life through your photos and words.

Our lives are made up of stories and our photos and memorabilia tell those stories. Don't let them sit in boxes, in attics, in basements, or in closets. Let's work together to help you organize your life story.

-- Do you want to collect and preserve the life stories from your loved ones or record your own story for future generations?

-- Are you overwhelmed by boxes of photos and memorabilia but you don't know the stories that go with them?

-- Do you want your photos and stories to be organized and beautifully preserved so they can be shared for years to come?

If you answered yes to any of these questions I am here to help you. We can work together or I can help you know how to do the work yourself. Through a variety of services we can create a beautifully organized story of your life and the lives of those you love,  


Let's Talk...

We are all storytellers, We live in a network of stories. There isn't a stronger connection between people than storytelling.

(Jimmy Neil Smith) 

 Our lives are made up of stories. We tell these stories through the photos we take, through the words we write, and through the memories we collect in our minds. When we save and tell these stories we can see who we are and where we came from. We can see what we value most. But too often these stories are not organized until we are gone, and then, by someone in our family rather than us doing it ourselves. 


Our stories me be located in boxes of photos dumped together, hundreds of digital photos that we can't even bear to sort through anymore, or thoughts that live only in our memories.  And rarely do we have those stories saved in ways that we can revisit them for years to come and so future generations will know who we were. 

Let's work together to get your photos and your memories organized for yourself, for your children, for the next five generations. Let's work together to preserve your story. Because your story matters.

"I asked Kim at Stories of a Life to compile a scrapbook of my husband's 29 years in Law Enforcement as a retirement gift for him. She did a wonderful job including photos from his graduation from the academy, to awards and citations he had received throughout his career. The letters from families of people he had helped and thank you notes from the children he often sent time with as part of his Community Policing duties helped describe the type of officer he was and human being he is. Kim Kiehl is a true artist...she takes her time to really get to know the person she is creating for. The end of a beautiful "documentary in book form' of the person. She has a true passion for her work and it comes through in the end product.
