How Photomemoirs works. Find your favourite photos. Record yourself telling the stories of your favorite photos.

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 will bring joy to the whole family from the youngest to the oldest generations.

Anyone can write a Photo memoir and the company have made a business of offering a system to write memoirs

Many people are not writers but we've all gof photographs and have stories of our live.

What Photomemoirs do is collect a recording of your life stories based on your favourite photographs.

You simple pick your favourite photos and then tell the story of each photo while recording it.  

Then send the recordings and photographs to Photomemoirs and they will do the rest. 

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

Then all your friends and family can order it and enjoy the best stories and memories of your life

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

All you do, is make a collection of your favourite photos and then tell the story behind the images - just the same way as if you were showing your friends or family a photograph and telling them about it.

Photomemoirs is more than a photo album but less than an autobiography.

You could think of it like as an "expanded" photo album with a longer story about each picture instead of just a caption. is a real book but much easier to write and structure than a traditional autobiography. And because of the many photos and the relaxed story telling style, it's fun to read for family and friends.

For inspiration have a look inside the very first Photomemoirs book that was published - it is called "Copenhagen to Ipoh" and tells the story of 2 years spent in Malaysia in the 1950 by a Danish girl who became a British Army wife.

It could be, for example,  

-a life story, 
-a family history, 
-a special event or time in your life

or something else...
