A photo book


When it comes to taking photos, I take hundreds. When it comes to actually printing them out? We've got two printed pictures, two! It's something I feel hugely guilty about on a weekly basis. My parents always took such wonderful photos of mine and my siblings childhood and it was one of my favourite things picking out the photo albums from a particular year or summer and sitting back and talking about the memories held in each one.

It was the perfect excuse then when Snapfish asked me to review one of their photobook albums. I chose the large hard back book with twenty pages which you can see here. I really love the quality of both the book and paper type, also that each page leaves room enough for you to add your own details if you wish. I'm actually thinking of adding a few Instagram pictures I have printed out around some of pictures and writing some text on others. This size book would also be a great template for a scrap book if you are into scrapbooking!

In hindsight although it's great to have the images displayed at this size I think in future I will go for a smaller sized book (of which there are many) to be able to fit our bookshelf. This is an oversight on my part though as I was free to choose any size and is still nice to have as a large coffee table book.

I'm already planning getting one made up at the end of the year to display all the 52 project photos from the year. I think they will make great gifts for grandparents too!

I was sent a photobook to review but all words and thoughts are my own

I love the picture you chose for the cover! You are so creative with your photos. I've mad a vow to myself to start printing out photos each month and make albums up, even if they are only iPhone photos, just so I have something physical to remind myself of the sweet little moments in life. I still love looking through mum and dad's old albums :) xx

It looks lovely, we are massive photobook fans here and print out lots, although this year I am just doing a yearly one as a whole family. x
