If you follow me on Instagram, it probably comes as no surprise that I create custom, year in review photo books for my kids each year. I’ve documented my passion for capturing everyday moments, but what good are they on my computer where nobody gets to enjoy them?
Today, I’m sharing the lazy mom’s way to make year in review books.
I’ve never met anyone who has said, “I WISH I didn’t have SO MANY PHOTOS from when the children were young.” Or, “We have too many photos! We simply must GET RID of all these.”
In fact, in a very unofficial poll of some of my closest friends, the #1 or #2 “thing” they would save in a house fire would be printed photos, hard drives and/or memory cards of photos.
That’s why I’m very passionate about capturing my children during these fast moving years, where each day brings a new milestone:
…learning to read and write
…potty training – all of it. It’s all beautiful.
I’m a huge advocate for getting professional family photos taken each year. I’m all for posed-looking-at-the-camera-smiling photos.
But it’s these moments. These little everyday occasions that I look upon and I remember.
…BRB…I think there’s something in my eye…
So this year, I’m starting my fist #365 project. Every day, I’ll be looking for beauty in our everyday moments and sharing my photos on Instagram. Will you join me? Please let me know! I’d love to follow you in your journey!
