Founded in 2007 by Mary Gutowski-Hazzard, Memories WOW! was created to take the hassle out of preserving life’s journey. Having four kids in four years (WOW) while working full time as an outside sales representative, Mary was having a tough time maintaining her ever growing collection of digital memories–those photos and videos which captured so many of her children’s precious moments and milestones.
One holiday season in order to remember the extended family’s birthdays, she decided to tackle a family calendar. While trying to get digital photos from her sisters and other family members, she spent COUNTLESS HOURS downloading software, uploading photos, wading through, cropping, retouching and laying out the final images. She was exhausted and frustrated!
When the final product was unveiled, Mary realized how many others were also hoping to get their own memories off their hard drives and memory cards but just didn’t have the time, patience or know-how to do so. And that is when Mary’s fifth and final “baby” was born: Memories WOW! (without the work).
