About the Process:

THE INTERVIEW:  A guided conversation with Gia, recounting the day of your child’s birth. Gia takes the time to really get to know you. To prepare, awaken your memories with photos, documents and saved newborn memorabilia. Anticipate a 1.5 hour video call, scheduled at your convenience. Perfectly paired with a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

THE RESULT: A unique story reflecting details surrounding your big day. Inspired by your life, authored by Gia. Picking up threads of ideas shared in the interview, the story will paint a vivid picture of your life and your unique experience through one of life's most grounding milestones.  Gia prepares a draft for you to review and edit for accuracy. The final version is transformed into a 8x10 softcover keepsake for you to relish and share.
