The first photo book

Posted By Tiffany M On January 11, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 5 Comments

My friends call me the “Shutterfly pusher”, because at every party, when someone asks me about Shutterfly, I go on and on about it: “Making photo books is fun, photo books are cool, they take up less space in my house, and you just have to post them in the Gallery [1] to share them!”

But here’s the thing…even though my friends and family love my photo books and find them unique and interesting, they do not make any for themselves; so I’m taking my “Shutterfly pushing” one step further. I’m introducing family and friends to the photo book making process, and turning them from photo book admirers into photo book makers.

For instance, with a little help from me, my mother made a book about her trip to Italy [2] and had a ball!  I had to sit down with her and set up the book to get things rolling, but once she got the hang of it, she had fun and followed with another vacation book. She also has future plans on scanning some old pictures and making my Oma a book. Thus, her new Shutterfly hobby is born.

My mom’s friend loved her books so much, she got busy too, and made HER mom a 90th Birthday book [3]. She said she had a great time making the book, and looks forward to the next one! I’m telling you, it only takes one person to start a trend…

A friend of mine who loves taking pictures almost as much as I do, started her first book [4] before the birth of her first child… and now has completed three! She’s hooked!

I know some people are intimiated by photo books but once you make your first one, it’s hard to stop. And if my mother can make one, anybody can! Plus, now that Shutterfly has introduced Simple Path [5], making that first photo book is easier than ever. Tell your family and friends to try it! Oops, I think I’m “Shutterfly pushing” again…
