into beautiful Photo Books!
A wonderful way to preserve your memories!
Totally customizable and endless Themes!
Photo Books make GREAT birthday, anniversary, graduation, baby and wedding gifts!
The Best Part:
No more sorting though boxes of pictures!
Where are your family photos? In boxes? In drawers? In envelopes? In unmarked albums? Or are you not sure WHERE they are? Wouldn't
it be nice to FINALLY get your photographs organized - once and for all? Wouldn't it also be nice to have a system in place to KEEP them organized? It is not as hard as you might
think. It may seem daunting, but with a little motivation and planning you CAN have beautiful albums that you and your family and friends can enjoy for years to come.
Let's get started!
Decide how you want to organize your photographs.
I find organizing by year the easiest - I can just add photos to the album throughout the year. You can also organize by event, person, place, or
season. Do what feels right to you and think about retrieval. If you want to find that picture of your son's first tee ball game will you look in a 2004 album, a sports album, a summer
album or in the child's personal album?
Also, do you want to store your photos in albums or photo boxes?
Once you decide on the themes and titles for your albums or boxes START SORTING the photos into these designated piles. Get all the pictures sorted FIRST,
THEN decide what type and size of albums or boxes you need. I use a 4 inch 3-ring binder for a year's worth of photos.
Make sure you make a separate pile for duplicates or photos you want to keep,
but do not want to put into an album. (I will show you what to do with these later.)
After all your photos are in their designated piles, you can have some fun!
Large albums or boxes are often too bulky to get out and share on a regular basis.
But pictures are meant for sharing! The solution: turn bulky scrapbooks into thin photo books! They are easier to store and share, make great
keepsake books, coffee table books
and memory books. I give them as personalized gifts every year!
There will most likely be photos and memories that just don't fit into a regular photo album
or box. There is an easy solution for this. Simply keep "like" with "like". I use 3-ring bingers to store larger 5x7 and 8x10 photos. I have
one for professional and school portraits, another
for sport portraits and a third for holiday portraits and cards. I know exactly where to find
the photograph I am looking for. Plus, it is fun to see how the kids "grow" from year to year. Get creative and decorate your binders! Make sure to
keep binders in chronological order!
In addition to these themed picture binders, I keep a Scrapbook binder.
This includes artwork, newspaper articles, notes and anything sentimental.
Keep this binder in chronological order too.
Here are some examples of photo books.
You can choose from many themes and customize them any way you wish.
They are much easier to share and can be created in a variety of sizes.
They make great keepsakes and gifts too!
Some themes include: weddings, baby books, vacations, school years, sports, birthdays, reunions, honeymoons, anniversaries, holidays and year in
If you prefer to go completely digital, there are several online photo sharing sites.
Many of these sites offer free photo sharing services. These sites, such as Shutterbug.com, Joomeo.com and Flickr.com, are a great way to keep your digital
Photos are easy to upload into digital albums. Then you can share with family and friends,
and even publish albums and photos directly to a blog, social network or website.
You can view albums as a digital photo book or a slideshow. Some sites allow you to make your own private website to share your photos. You can also
make digital photo books. (Make sure you use a site with an unlimited number of allowable uploads.)
Show off your photos! I LOVE decorating with photographs. I believe you should have things in your house that make you happy - and looking at the people I
love makes me happy.
