Whether you’re going on a trip of a lifetime, or a trip down the road, vacation memories can be some of the best times you and your friends and family share. Vacations let you get away from the worries of work and school so can really enjoy yourself. To be able to look back on these good times with a photo book is priceless and I’ve got a few tips to make it a snap!
- double check your camera before you leave
- make sure you have your battery charger
- format plenty of memory cards
- pick up a simple notebook [preferably one that can fit in your purse/bag]
- pack a pen!
Then, when you’re on your vacation, keep simple notes. You don’t need to write a whole book or diary entry – bullet points will work. Jot down where you go that day and a special moment or two you want to remember. Your pictures will tell the rest of the story.
When you come home, sort through your pictures and create a photo book using Shutterfly templates.
