In honour of International Women’s Day we want to introduce you to the fabulous females who make Momento Photo Books run so smoothly and put the TLC into our service, software and products. Endless thanks to Aya, Jess, Ling, Jenny, Jackie, Ellen, Lidia, Lisa, Priya, Nadia, Susan, Gina, Elizabeth and Libby for making our world go around.
Our Australian service manager, Nadia, is a Parisian born portrait photographer and devoted mum of three. As an only child, and after losing her parents and grandparents within a few years, she realised that all her childhood memories were preserved not in conversations and moments with siblings, but in photos. She is now committed to creating tangible family memories, and shares her tips here.
