How to Capture Your Summer Holiday

I love capturing all my special memories with photo graphs. I remember many years ago when someone would  ask the question, "if there was a fire in your house what would you save?" Of course this is after you've saved all the living things in your home as family and pets come first. I would always answer, my photographs. I have many of them, recording the events over the years of my life. The further back you go the fewer there are. I don't have any baby photo's of myself but I do have photos from my childhood and ones taken with my parents who are no longer of this world.

These days photos are saved digitally. There is nothing wrong with that, back when I was younger we would have a film containing 24 photos, sometimes I would take two films on holiday, that's 48 photos. You can take that many on a day trip on your phone or digital camera these days. Then I would have to wait for my photos to be processed and then go and collect them. I remember the photos from my eldest girls third birthday, the whole reel was ruined. I did not have a single photo and almost cried in the chemist where I was picking them up from. They compensated me with a free film, but I couldn't re-create my daughter's birthday party.

I still like physical photos though, and I even enjoy putting them in albums to look at. Recently I've discovered photo books and I love them. I have a whole shelf of them now. They take up less room than photo albums and you can fit more photos in. You can also add text and backgrounds, it's like digital scrapbooking.

Here is a photo book I made last year of our Summer activities.

I can't wait to start taking photo's and capturing our Summer this year. I've already got enough to fill one album for our holiday which we had earlier in June.

Photo albums are great for keeping your photos safe and in order and are so lovely to keep forever. 
At the moment PrinterPix have a special offer on photobooks.


No code required!! The book is A4 hardback and you can buy now and create your album later, you have up to three months. Perfect for capturing all those Summer memories. 

Making photo books are easy, anyone can do it. You find the book you like, upload your photos and then just click and drag your photos into the frame into the book. You can add text boxes if you want to write something to go with your photos. You can even move the photo frames around, make them bigger, smaller or delete them and have a complete page photo. You are instructed with symbols to make sure your photos will print nicely, if you get a warning sign then you know you have to make your photo smaller for better quality printing. It really is simple.

Have you ever made a photo book?
