From the Founder
Why I'm so passionate about this
It started with a baby sea turtle
It's not every day that you find a newly hatched baby sea turtle on its journey to the ocean. This is one of my favorite memories with my then 8 year old son. And, it was the rare photo of that baby turtle (and a corresponding video) (that ironically I can't find now) that made me want to create a place where our family adventures could be organized together and easily passed down to my son.
I was extremely frustrated trying to gather and organize photos and videos in the cloud, on my computer, in social media sites...my phone!
How was my son ever going to enjoy his childhood memories?! How was I? I didn't have time to compare, choose and organize our photos and videos into the stories I wanted to leave behind for him like...“The Trip To Costa Rica”
The simple answer to me was a product that combined what I love about photo books (easy, individual story preservation, tangible books) with what I love about the digital world (touch screens, cloud back up, apps).
I wanted a “one place” to keep EVERYTHING together; photos, videos, report cards...my son’s artwork. I wanted to throw photos direct from my phone, the cloud, social media sites. I wanted it to be SUPER easy.
The story gets longer from there, but this was the origin of WILLA ... and 42 Memory Lane.
We are a group of parents, business and manufacturing executives and software programmers who are just as frustrated as you.
WE think it’s time for a revolution! Well, if “revolution” means something as common sense as a physical place in your home where you can access your own family memories without an internet connection ... easily combine, re-combine, preserve and secure the memories you want your family to have in perpetuity and share them through a private network of family albums.
Total control without making life more difficult.
