How to write a picture memoir or a photo memoir?

A "picture memoir" predominantly relies on photographs and is frequently referred to as a "photo memoir".

A picture memoir is a collection of photos with accompanying text that describes the picture in more detail.

Think of a photographic memoir as being "more than" a photo album but "less than" a full memoir or traditional autobiography.

A picture memoir provides more information about its photos compared to a photo album, which typically includes only brief captions. However, it doesn't require as much detail as a book because the photos themselves offer a substantial amount of information to the reader. This makes creating a photo memoir a more straightforward writing task

Photographs capture numerous details about people or places, often challenging for less experienced writers to describe. When composing a picture memoir, the writer need only focus on narrating the story within the photo, without the necessity of describing the image itself.

For example, in the case of a photograph showing a house by a lake with three children on the shore, the writer's task is to elaborate on the identities of the children and the activities they engaged in at the lake. The description of the lake, the boat, and the weather is already conveyed by the photo.
