Interviews can be conducted in-person or remotely.  Wherever you are, let's capture your stories together.


 

WHERE

THE STORY BEGAN

I interview people about stories they feel are important to share with those they love.  I have always loved talking to people and hearing stories about their lives. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over a decade, I have spent hours honing the skills of listening, asking questions, and helping people feel comfortable sharing.  With Storied, I use my skills to promote joy and connection.

 

In 2015 my father died of cancer.  My family put on a beautiful memorial service for him full of stories about his life, career, family and friendship.  It was sweet, and funny and full of love and I wish he had been there to hear it all.  In the fall of 2019, feeling tired and needing a change, my husband suggested that I start a business where I interview people about their life stories.  After my initial hesitation and subsequent eye roll, I relented and realized he was onto something.

 

Storied is my answer to preserving family history, lore and funny tales.  It is my unique way to facilitate sharing what you love, admire, and have learned from those around you.

 

The interview process is tailored to your specific story and intended audience.  I am here to support you in sharing your story in a way that feels relaxed and enjoyable. I will record, edit, and make your audio interview a beautifully presented gift to give. 

Here are a few examples of stories to share:

 

  • A full life story to give your children and grandchildren

  • Your children’s birth stories to give them as a gift.

  • A birthday or anniversary gift sharing what you love about another person and the stories that illustrate that affection.

  • A compilation of short interviews to give as a retirement gift to a beloved work colleague.

  • A compilation of short interviews to give as a wedding gift to a newly minted couple.

  • The story behind your business to share with potential customers.

  • End of life stories to share with loved ones when you are no longer here.

  • A memorial compilation with stories of a deceased loved one to share with future generations.

  • A ‘how we met story’ to share with a partner or lifelong friend.

  • Siblings sharing stories of what they love, admire and have learned from their parents and how they have navigated challenging times together.

 

You can meet with me in-person to record in my office studio or over the phone or computer.  Please reach out with any other story ideas you have.

Capturing stories is truly an honor.  I am grateful every day that I get to do it.

Warmly,

becca

 
Share what you love, admire and have learned from those around you.
1.  INITIAL CONSULTATION

When you have a story, memory, or an audience in mind, let's talk.

 

Every Storied experience includes a 15-minute consultation call - this gives us a chance to get to know each other a bit, allows you to set the tone and direction of your story, and ensures you get the most out of your Storied interview session.

2.  INTERVIEW

The amount of interview time may vary based what you want to accomplish.

 

Gift interviews usually take up to 30 minutes while full life story interviews can take anywhere form 1 hour to 3 hours.

 

We can meet in-person at my office studio in South Portland, Maine.  Or we can record over the computer or phone.  I am willing to travel short distances if meeting in-person at your home works best. 

3.  PRODUCTION

Production includes a discussion with you around what you want highlighted from your interview, and what you might want edited out.

 

I will edit out 'ums' and pauses and anything else that feels extraneous.  You don't have to worry about stumbling over your words while we talk--editing will take care of all of that.

Typically if we talk for an hour, your final product will be around 35-45 minutes.

4. STORIED.

The final product will saved on a USB flash drive, gift boxed up, and mailed to you.  Or dropped off to you if you live locally.

 

It will also be emailed to you as a Dropbox file that you can forward along to anyone you'd like.
