Whether you call it a Memory Book, a Life Story Photobook, a Legacy Book or a photo memoir, hiring a professional to custom-design it for you might not be something you’ve ever thought you would do. But you realize how precious this type of book would be to an ageing parent as well as the whole family, and the months and years keep zooming by.
This year I have added a new type of photobook called the Memory Book. This photobook package offers one-on-one time to plan your book, scanning and photo retouching, and lots of choice for design. It is perfect for clients who prefer a clean, classic, photo album-style book with one or two photos per page on a plain background.
This style is ideal for people suffering from dementia because the text is minimal and easy to read. These books can cover themes like: My life Story, Who’s Who in my Family, Favourite Things or Favourite Places. When my dad was in the last few years of his life and his room became his world, photobooks were a wonderful way of sharing stories from the past and sparking memories. His photo albums were yellowed and crumbling so we removed and scanned the best photos. Photo books are bright and clear, durable, convenient to look at, and they feel like a story book in your lap!
These Memory Book packages start at $475 for photos and captions, or $575 with stories as well.
The fully customized, more detailed Legacy Book packages start at $900.
Together, we will make the process enjoyable. I can take most of the decisions off your hands, and keep the project on track. My clients love to hand over the photos we’ve chosen, with the text we’ve worked on, and wait for the book to be designed. If you would like to use the photobook as a birthday or anniversary gift, we will work within that timeline.
What makes my service special is that I can digitize anything you have from the past and make your images beautiful again. My style makes the most of your images while integrating the stories I have helped you write.
Let me help you save a lifetime of memories and share them with the whole family.
