Summer Photo Book To-Do List

Posted By Lara H On June 20, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 5 Comments

Summer is here, which means I have to make my photo book to do list. Of course there’s the vacation adventures which will be documented in books, but in looking through gallery I have been inspired with some other ideas too.

1) Kids school work/art work book:  I did take the photos of my daughter’s school work before stuffing the papers in the recycling bin, but I have yet to organize it into a book that documents their year. DanielleF814 has inspired me with kesaia art book [1], a simple and cleanly laid out documentation of her daughter’s school work.

2) Tell my story with words, not just pictures: SusanG3452’s Reese08 [2] shows me that I need to not just take the photos but capture the memories in words.  Her book is cleanly laid out and movingly captioned in a way that I want to remember to do.

3) Don’t forget the photography: But of course photo books are about photos, and I want to take better ones. Looking at what others do is a great source of ideas. MairL’s Because of You [3] captures details and everyday moments that I want to be sure to get too.

What are your summer photo book ideas? What have you been inspired to try to do during these sunny days? Let us know by commenting on this article.
