Send them off to college with a photo book

Posted By Rachel B On July 18, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 6 Comments

I remember driving down to L.A. in my little Honda CVCC, excited but apprehensive about my Freshman year in college. Would I do well in my classes? Would I make good friends? What would dorm life be like? Did I have the right clothes? Would I fit in? And although I tried to push them aside – I mean, come on! An 18 year old doesn’t get HOME sick, right? – my thoughts kept returning to mom, dad, even my pesky little sister. What would life be like without them? What were they doing right now? Were they thinking of me? Did they miss me? Sniff…sniff…sniff…

I didn’t know it then, but what I really needed was a taste of home. Something to cheer me up and cheer me on as I tackled this important milestone. Where was Shutterfly when I needed them?

If you have someone special in your life, who is embarking on a college adventure, don’t let them drive down that highway alone. Create a photo book to remind them of home – and tell them you’re thinking of them, you’re supporting them, and that home is just a picture away. After all, you don’t want them to cry and drive at the same time. It looks so UNCOOL!

If you need inspiration to get you started on your “off to college” photo book [1], check out these  examples from Shutterfly Gallery [2].
