What's a Photo without the Story

Episode 094
What's a Photo without the Story?

Join us and our today’s guest Hazel Thornton who gives us an insight about how you can research your own family’s stories – and find out more about the bathing beauty on the book cover of her latest book What’s a Photo Without the Story? How to Create Your Family Legacy!

Discover why it is so important to tell the stories of our photos and how it can be beneficial not only to ourselves. The great thing is that you don’t have to write a book or a biography, you can start small and keep it simple. Hazel’s practical tips will help you along the way. 

We love how Hazel offers us different approaches throughout the book such as things to do with 

  • low effort (do this if nothing else),
  • medium effort (your family will thank you) or
  • high effort (ask for help if you need it)

The book is meant to help people at all levels – you don’t have to be a photo organiser, writer or genealogist!

Buy the book from here: Amazon and keep an eye out for her next book: Go With the Flow! (The Clutter Flow Chart Workbook)
