One of the reasons I love photography is because it allows someone who is a non writer (in a family full of writers) to capture and tell stories using images, like the old saying goes “A picture is worth a thousand words” but sometimes even us non writers have to struggle thru the words and write if we have a story to tell that can’t be told with just images. I have had a book idea in my head for some time and I struggled with getting someone else to write it or just going ahead with it. I finally sat down and wrote it and with the help of my mom Carol Bremner and my sister Melanie my book is finished and for sale on Amazon.
Book description – Everyone has a story to tell, but how do you tell that story if you are not a writer? As a photographer I wanted a way to be able to tell my story for future generations. The solution, create my story using photos and journaling. This book is full of questions and tips that I used to help create my story. This is not a book on how to scrapbook but how to create a visual story of your life. The book talks about why and how you should tell your story and suggestions for dealing with painful stories as well as ways to personalize and what you can do if you don’t have photos. It is never to late or early to start and your story is important.
There’s also advice on how to handle the skeleton in the closet.As we grow older, we get more interested in our family’s history. Unfortunately, by that time our parents may have died and many questions will remain unanswered.
This really is a great instruction manual on how to make the best ever present for your grown up children. I wish my mother had made me one…
I would love to be able to add your reviews to these ones.
