Professional Books & Albums | Tips & Tricks Tuesday

This is the last post in the series about creating your own photo memory books. If you missed all of the previous posts, you can catch up by reading Frozen Moments, Getting Organized, and Creating the Memory Book.

Today’s post will be short and sweet, and isn’t so much advice as it is showing you what’s available. BUT, I couldn’t not sure another option for printing your memories in a very professional way!

If you have used me to photograph professional pictures for you or are planning to in the future, you can always take advantage of the Keepsake Books that I offer! I can print custom photo book for you as either a coffee-table book style with lay-flat pages, or an album with thicker, lay-flat pages. Both are gorgeous and look amazing!

I typically don’t recommend something THIS fancy unless it is something that will be housing professional images or showcasing a very special events (i.e. baby’s newborn session or first year, a child’s special birthday party that was professionally photographed, or even a snippet of your child growing up from years 1-5).

If you have used other photographers in the past and have purchased the full-resolution digital negatives (and the copyright to print and make copies), but your previous photographer didn’t offer the option to make books, I can create a custom book for you with those images. I love making these books and the printing finish makes them turn out so beautifully! I use my professional printer to order them, and spend hours creating a special custom design for you that works with your style and images.

Want more information? Just shoot me an e-mail! {} These books/albums tend to be on the pricey side, but in essence, you are getting what you pay for, which is a beautiful design and end product! Remember, you don’t have to have past or current images taken from me… just any professional photographs that you own with the copyright. Furthermore, if you ARE a customer of mine, you can always inquire about digging up an old session and making a book from it, if you have pictures you love and want to continue to cherish forever in book form 🙂

Here are a few images to wrap up today’s post of my engagement pictures and wedding pictures, taken by the lovely and talented Meredith Washburn Photo. This shows you both products, the book and the album.

{A shout out to White House Custom Color, the printing company that does such a phenomenal job at creating these!}

I turned our book into a guest book that was signed at the wedding. This is a wedding-themed option, but keep in mind this same concept can be used for a book for your family photos or children!

This is the 10×10 album – same size, but much bulkier because of the thick pages. It’s such a rich, polished look!

Do you see the thickness of these pages?

I have created many-a-book-or-album-design in my life. Two page spreads like this are my favorite.

Both of these books, although one is a book and the other an album, work well together because they are both the same size.
