Every fall since Brayden was born, we schedule family photos with my dear friend Laura. It’s something I look forward to, and as a photographer myself, I know how important it is to get these photos taken. The kids grow and change so much in one year, and it is a gift to myself that I absolutely treasure. Every year without fail, I get our family photos turned into a photo book from Shutterfly. These photo books are great quality, easy to create, and they bring your photos that would otherwise be stored on your camera to life to be enjoyed.
Shutterfly is introducing a new service to make this even easier. The Make My Book Service is great for anyone who wants to preserve their family memories into a professional looking photo book without spending hours designing it.
Here’s how it works:
–Choose your book size and style. Upload your photos from your computer, phone, tablet, or Shutterfly account. Let Shutterfly do the rest! It’s free to get started!
-In three business days, Shutterfly adds your book to your account so you can check it out! This is where you can tweak things if you want! If you decide to order, it’s a fee of $9.99 for the Make My Book Service! (You only pay the fee if you order the book!)
I could not be happier with how this turned out! The book brought our family photos to life! I am so happy that I started doing this, and now I am thrilled that Shutterfly makes it easy to do without taking up hours of my time getting the book perfect. Our book is the perfect coffee table addition, and the kids have already looked through it at least a dozen times.
The 10×10 photo book is the most popular size, and I find that it’s my favorite of all the options! It’s big enough for a gorgeous display but small enough to take for others to see if I wanted to. They are great to take to family gatherings (especially with the holidays coming up!) to share.
These photos of Brayden and Kenley are some of my favorite. When Kenley turned 1, I had a sweet photo of her trying to kiss Brayden on the cheek. Every year since, I have had the kids pose this way. It’s definitely one of my favorite parts of family photos, and now year after year, I can relive them in our photo books.
Not only are these books great for keeping for yourself, but they make incredible gifts! Check out Shutterfly’s new Make My Book service, and let your photos live outside of your computer.
