Do you ever get overwhelmed by the number of photos you actually take in this age of digital photography and cell phone cameras? In the past 8 years since I have met my husband and had children, I have become sort of photo crazy, snapping away every single moment of life trying to create a way to memorialize how very special life is. And then my photos just sit…unviewed…in some digital file somewhere on my computer. Occasionally, I do make the effort to load them into an album on Facebook. But that is generally where it stops. For one simple reason…I get entirely too overwhelmed by the massive amount of photos that I do take. And I can’t bring myself to delete any of them. So there they remain…in an essential photo wasteland. And that, my friends, is kind of sad.
(Please note: This is NOT a sponsored post. It is, however, a shameless plug in an effort to promote my friend’s photo book business at 5 Memory Lane. And the service is well worth the money! Read on for more details…)
When my friend, Amy, approached me (about 2 years ago) with this proposal, “Hey, you know I can make a photo book for you. All you have to do is send me the pictures and I will do the work for you,” I actually refused the offer thinking that I simply could not weed through all of my photos and choose the ones I would want in a photo book. But then Amy took another action…she went ahead and created a photo book for me as a surprise Christmas present this past year. And it was amazing! She used photos from my blog and each page contained a photo and a lesson from my post 39 Things I Have Learned…. And it was the most fabulous surprise!
Here…have a peak inside!
I loved my photo book so much that I decided I was definitely going to let Amy make another book for me. And since I never had transferred my wedding photos into a book of any sort, I thought this would be the place to start. Before I give you peak inside that book, I want to return briefly to my dread of having to weed through a zillion pictures and choose which ones I wanted memorialized in print. Fortunately, Amy had the best solution. She said I could send her all of the photos and she would weed through them all! ALL OF THE PHOTOS! So that’s exactly what I did. I placed hundreds of photos into a drop box for her…HUNDREDS…and she wasn’t lying. She did all of the work! And now I have a fabulous wedding album to pass on down through the generations!
Have a little look!
(Note: I chose the words on the back cover…well…because that’s how my husband and I roll! Forever. It really is a long time.)
