Sydney
Australia

LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Story Book Templates

STORY BOOK TEMPLATES

With the widespread use of camera phones, most of us have become heavily reliant on snapping photos as the primary method of documenting our lives. Yet, journaling with words remains one of the most primitive and powerful forms of memory keeping. With this in mind, Ronnie started creating photo books that placed equal emphasis on images and words. Thus, the story book concept was born.

With an extensive background in commercial design, Ronnie is a strong advocate of minimalist design. In relation to story books, this means including only the bare, essential elements to produce something that is beautiful, meaningful, and memorable. Featuring white space, classic fonts, and clean typography, the templates below have been created to let your photos and your words shine. More importantly, these templates are timeless and will not date.

In place of elaborate graphic embellishments, each template has been meticulously crafted with the finest typesetting detail. In addition to in-built paragraph styles which enable you to keep your formatting consistent throughout a long document, each template has been developed to respond to the amount of text you wish to include - thus ensuring that each and every page looks well-balanced and beautiful. For now, we offer templates created specifically for Artifact Uprising, as their core values are in line with our own, and their products are simply gorgeous to behold.

These are Adobe InDesign CC document files. You will require Adobe InDesign CC to open and edit the templates. You can download a trial copy of the software here, or you can read our Software page for more information about subscribing to the Adobe Creative Cloud. There are basic tutorials here to help you use your file, and we also offer an online class for those of you interested in learning more. You can also read this blog post to better understand why Adobe InDesign is the best software for multi-page design projects.

We plan to release new story book templates every month or so, so please follow us on Twitter or sign up to our newsletter on the homepage for new product announcements.
