photo books celebrating the Big 4-0

Posted By Lara H On May 3, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 4 Comments

The big 4-0 is a milestone I faced last year and my husband faces this one. I‘ve seen some 40th birthday tribute albums in the Shutterfly Photo Book Gallery [1], and thought I’d share a few with you for inspiration -  in case you’re helping someone celebrate a milestone birthday (10, 20, 30, 40 or whatever age).

Denise [2] by ROLANDAV documents a friendship that began in 5th grade and continues to this day. I love how Denise’s life plays out in photos and memories from her friend and can imagine the reaction she received.

The Book of Chris [3] by MaryAnnKnight is an ambitious 40th birthday undertaking. She wrote to family and friends asking them to submit answers to a variety of questions she posed (When was the first time you met? Memorable moments together? Notable quotes and Chris-isms? Why do you admire him? What have you learned from him? Your favorite story about Chris?). The answers – long and short – were included in the book along with a photo sent along by those who responded. While at first I felt daunted by this approach, I actually see it as really helping to inspire the creation process and fill the book with content.

Finally, GRT40 [4] by TanaF7 is the traditional biographical approach with photos from Glen’s life from birth through his major milestones and into his present work and family situation.

Do you have a special photo book [5] you’ve given as a birthday gift? Let us know by commenting on this article.
