I have been chipping away at my own to-do list lately and at the top of that list has been PHOTOS. Since moving I had fallen behind in our family albums and our framed photos were an outdated mishmash-poor Ford was hardly represented at all. Time for a real refresh!
Luckily my digital photos have remained organized and categorized...I prefer fewer/larger photo albums (2014, Cuba, 2015, Big Bend) versus a ton of tiny ones. Since everything on my computer was fairly together I was ready to get moving.
1. Create beautiful (and well edited!) albums. I started doing this in 2008, when Matt and I got married, and nothing makes me happier than seeing all of the beautiful books and matching spines in our home. My system is to put together one album for each year, any big trips and one for each child's 1st year. I had made albums for years previously but they were bulky, contained way too many pictures and so expensive. I know there are lots of great companies making beautiful albums but my favorite remains Pinhole Press and specifically their Signature Hardcover Photo Book.
Pro tip...wait a while after the big event...it will be much easier to discern which snaps should make the cut!
