Family Photobook

For Christmas this year, I decided to give everyone sentimental gifts. Earlier this year I wrote a post about preserving family photos digitally. Well I was working on that project not only because it’s important to preserve family photos and genealogy but because I was designing a photobook to give to my family members for Christmas. I completed the project using MyPublisher because I recently ordered a book from them and I absolutely love how beautiful their books are and the sales that they offer making them very affordable for a fantastic product.

We all spent the entire day looking at all the photos together, reliving great memories, listening to stories from my grandparents, making fun of our crazy 90’s outfits, passing down stories to my ten year old brother, and laughing. Here are my favorite spreads and photos from the finished book. IMG_8115 My amazing grandparents have been married for 62 years. They are basically the epitome of love and happiness.

I started the book with a simple saying centered around the patriarch and matriarch who created my family, “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” And at the end? The perfect phrase to cap off a family photo book that spans 150 years. “And for the future. Happiness is what matters most.” IMG_8127
