A picture is priceless – make them a part of your everyday life

We are living in a time when access to photos is relatively easy and inexpensive.  And this is both a blessing and a curse.  Blessing because a picture captures our memories in a way that stories cannot.  A curse because we sometimes get carried away with the number of pictures, can’t download them from our digital cameras or find ourselves unsure about printing individual pictures.

What are Photobooks?  Photobooks are different than Photo Albums.  The Photo Album is a book of blank pages with pockets for organizing photographs.  Whereas a Photobook, quite literally, is a professionally published book with your pictures.

How do I create a Photobook?  Step 1:  Decide on a storyline (will this be about a specific individual or event, etc).  Step 2:  Write down the stories.  Best if you can write them down electronically.  Step 3:  Find a photo that matches the story.  Sometimes you will use the photos to inspire the story.

And the last step, contact a reputable partner to help pull together the project.  Your pictures are precious.
