OUR STORY

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We started with the belief that every person's life has unforgettable moments that define it. From marriage vows to Sundays at the park, these are the moments, both big and small, that we think deserve to be cherished. We believe that the best memories aren’t meant to fade away on the “cloud” – they’re meant to be saved, celebrated, and most importantly shared. So here’s to always choosing print over pixels, watching more sunsets than Netflix, and creating moments that are truly worth celebrating.

Why it matters
WHY IT MATTERS

Sometimes it can feel like your world is moving too fast: suddenly the days disappear into weeks and the weeks into years and it all begins to blur. And sometimes, in the middle of all of this, there will be a moment — be it a smile, a word, a kiss - that brings you back to life and reminds you of the good in the world. And it’s that moment, the glimmer of hope, that is worth celebrating. We strive every day to help you to create a book that is worthy of those moments.
HOW WE GOT HERE

We started as independent book publishers. Under the name PQ Blackwell, our publishing team has created a number of award-winning and internationally bestselling books. We've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the world’s leading photographers and figures including Nobel laureates Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. After two decades of creating books, we’ve tried all the papers, binding methods and printing techniques out there. This experience, coupled with our obsessive attention to detail, has helped us to create beautiful photo books and albums to bring your moments and memories to life.

Where our name came from
WHERE OUR NAME CAME FROM

MILK stands for ‘Moments of Inspiration, Laughter and Kinship’, a sentiment that has inspired our founder, Geoff Blackwell, long before the current MILK ever existed. In 1999, Geoff started the MILK Collection with the aim of collecting photographs, from both amateur and professional photographers, which celebrated our shared humanity. By 2001, the collection had grown to around 40,000 images, 300 of which were chosen to be the basis for an exhibition and three books founded on Family, Friendship and Love. The project was an international bestseller, but the concept was simple: to capture and celebrate what unites us as human beings – those moments of inspiration, laughter and kinship.
