As a photographer and a mom it seems like I take a plethora of pictures, right? Are you with me? Could you agree? Ok it may not be with my “big” camera everyday but I can guarantee I take AT LEAST one picture with my phone everyday. Andddd I only have one kiddo!!!
So lets face it I can’t print and hang every single picture on my walls, it’s just not feasible, right? Unless my whole house was wall papered in pictures! Yeh let’s not!
So I always turn to albums. I love my coffee table albums and not only do I love them but my husband loves them and it seems like every guest that comes into our home picks them up. I leave them in our living room, on our coffee table where they are accessible. Pictures are such a huge part of our lives (obviously!) and I love that our guests know that and feel comfy picking up our books and looking through them!
I tried out May Designs- photo album and I love them. I use the May Designs notebooks/calendars and organizers so I knew I would love their albums!
My initial stage was to plan “what” was going in my album. I decided to print and document my little baby girls birth story. There was room to journal in the album, I just chose not to do so since I had already hand written in her journal her birth story! Once I figured out “what” was going in the album the next steps were EASY!
First – the process was beyond easy. Their program to upload pictures, drag and drop, arrange etc was so quick and easy. As a mom we don’t always have time to worry about every single detail…yet they did that for me!
Second – I love I could choose a print for my cover. Who doesn’t like something a little cutesy and trendy?!?!
Thirdly – It’s a piece in our home that not only everyone can look at and love…it’s a piece I can pass down for generations to come. That’s what is so important about printing pictures for our homes.
