Grandparents Greatest Gift – A Year in Review Photo Book
Posted By Lara H On November 4, 2009 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 1 Comment
Grandparents can’t get enough photos of their grandchildren. Even if you’ve been disciplined enough (through the sleepless haze of the first year) to regularly share photos , or have found time between carpools and homework to email updates, grandma and grandpa will still want more. This is why a photo book  keepsake featuring images of their grandchildren will be opened again and again.
I’ve found a few photo books in Gallery  that offer different approaches to making a great grandparents gift that captures your child’s year:
Beautiful faces: The Neaves Family  by NEAVES is a simple display of candid and formal portraits of their children. Without a lot of words or background fanfare, he manages to capture the joy and celebrations of his family. The we love you  book by Patricia_z takes a similar approach with some additional digital embellishments.
Monthly highlights: The beginning  by Erica_H is a wonderful example of grouping photos by month and adding a page of journaling with highlights of the baby’s development and activities. Cassandra_B’s First Year Annabelle  takes a similar chronological approach offering page captions to remember the story behind the images.
Start with words: Love captured  by AmyHip is beautiful book that uses definitions of words to caption her niece and nephew’s photos. The possibilities of the words you could use on pages is endless. You can also use quotes in a similar fashion like in simmonschristmas2  by ShannonF333.
Capture the details: Cameron  by RekitaE captures the many details of her baby’s first year including his favorite things and the timing of his many firsts.
If you haven’t started already, I hope one of these ideas will make you feel that you can check off the grandparents from your Christmas shopping list because you’ve discovered the perfect gift! And, if you’re already on top of your storytelling, maybe you can add some new details to the format you’ve already chosen. christmas
