Lively Memory Archiving

Preserve your lifetime of printed photos in a digital archive that can be passed down for generations to come.

Our photo archiving service connects you with a Lively helper who will help you ensure that your photos and the unique memories and stories behind them can be safely kept forever. 

If you have albums of printed photos, our young Lively helpers will help you organise and choose the photos you would like to preserve, document the people and stories behind them, and scan them into digital albums that you can share with your family and loved ones.


Choose your photos

You choose the photos that are most special to you, and how many you’d like to scan and archive.

There are several ways of storing and sharing your archived photos with your family. Our helpers will explain the options and help you choose the one that’s right for you.

How does the memory archiving work?

One of our young Lively helpers will visit you at your own home or a convenient location of your choosing. Together, you'll talk through each of the photos you'd like to archive, and your helper will record the people, places and stories behind each of them. Your helper will then take the photos away, scan them, and collate the scanned photos and their stories into a digital archive. The number of visits required to complete your archive will depend on the number of photos you choose to preserve, and we will contact you to arrange the appropriate number of visits at the time of your booking.

What format does the archive come in?

You can choose to receive your photos as saved files on a USB storage device, or as an online album. We will discuss these options with you at the time of your booking to help you decide.
