When I opened the door to our postman and saw him holding a large square parcel I did snatch a bit. Not polite I know and I will apologise but I knew what was inside and I was desperate to see it!
Photobox offered me a review opportunity which was too good to miss. I chose to review their photobook range and once I had made my decision about the focus of my book, the process was easy and the result is fantastic.
I decided, with the blog in mind, that I would put together a book about Bonus Boy’s transition from pre-schooler to Big Boy in Uniform as I spent so much of the last few months writing about it.
It’s not all here because not all of it is for public consumption and I have covered his real name with a very fancy and professional label so you know who it’s about!
Once I had made this book and held it in my hands I realised what a fantastic thing photobooks are. The potential is huge, especially when we store so much of our lives digitally.
Giving Grandparents a book of the family year for Christmas would surely store up enough brownie points to last a life time! Recording significant events in a child’s life would be such a wonderful thing to have…perhaps a photo from each week/month/year of their life so far….
What would you pop into a photobook and who would you give one to?
