Photomemoirs.co involvement:
This was our first ever memoirs publication. At Photomemoirs we used our concept to create these wonderful photos and memories into a memoir from start to finish. It was a real family project which spread joy throughtout the family and friends and it really gave us the inspiration to keep going with the Photomemoir company. Thanks so much to our mother Lisette Staal Williams for letting us help her with her book. We are planning a follow up to cover her time in Germany, Malta, UK and Denmark.
