Choose between a Memory Book or a Legacy Book. We now offer two types of custom designed photo books.

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.

 

Favourite Montreal wedding shoot locations

Views of the river + beautiful parks = romantic and fun photographs in the west island

I have done my share of weddings in Old Montreal and love the old buildings and cobblestone roads as much as anybody. But I love West Island weddings – including Vaudreuil and Hudson, even more. It’s so easy to get access to the water for gorgeous landscape images. There is almost no chance of running into road closures, traffic snarls, street festivals, or parades!

I have been shooting weddings for many years, so these days I really enjoy casual settings, a simpler schedule (less locations) and the beauty of nature. Everyone is more relaxed when less travel is involved.

Get a custom designed photobook made as a special, very personal gift

Many people tell me that they would love to have a photobook of their family history or a book to honour a special family member but do not have the time or all the skills. It may be difficult to decide which stories to tell, how long the book should be, which photos to include, how to digitize your images, what point of view to take, what printer to use, etc.
The reality is, what seems like a simple project can quickly become overwhelming. The good news is that I can help you through the entire process from conception, to choosing photos, scanning, retouching or restoring, writing, editing, design, and printing your heirloom photobook.
