How to write your memoirs using Photo Memoirs

The Photomemoirs system is an very easy and fun way for people who don't really consider themselves as writers to "write" and publish a memoir

It's also a wonderful project for families that brings joy to the whole family from the youngest to the oldest generations.

It's very easy to write memoirs. Anyone can write a PhotoMemoir by writing or recording life stories based on your own photographs.

You simple pick your favourite photos and then tell the story of each photo by writing it - or recording it using a dictaphone (and soon on our new app * see below )
Then send us your writings or recordings and the photographs and leave the rest to us!

Photomemoirs will transcribe and edit your recording and put it all together so that your memoirs can be published as a paperback book or as a Kindle ebook on Amazon.

Then your friends and family can order it and enjoy your memoirs. 

You don't have to order any books up front and you don't have to be a writer or have writing skills.

All you have to do, is collect your favourite photos and tell the story behind them - just as if you were showing your friends or family a photograph and telling them about it.

We like to say that Photomemoirs is more than a photo album but less than an autobiography.

Think of it like as an "expanded" photo album with longer stories about each picture rather than just a caption. is a real memoir book but much easier to write and structure than a traditional autobiography.

For inspiration have a look inside the first published Photomemoirs book which is called "Copenhagen to Ipoh" 

It tells the story of 2 years spent in Malaysia in the 1950 by a Danish girl who became a British Army wife.

What can a photo memoir be about

A photo memoirs book can be about a variety of subjects.

It could be, for example,
- a life story, 
- a family history, 
- a special event or time in your life 
- a business that you owned or worked in.
- a person you want to remember or a place you lived.
- a special journey

or something else...
