If you’ve been on Snapshots & My Thoughts for more than 2 minutes, you’ll know I’m obsessed with take photographs (hence my decision to turn it into a career!). When Isla was born, I became paranoid that she was growing too quickly and that I would forget what she looked like on day 27, 35, 89, etc. Therefore, I had the genius idea that I would make a ‘Photo-a-Day’ book. When it came to which site I would use to document these memories, I immediately thought of Shutterfly, as I have 14 photo books (seriously) printed from this incredible company already, and you can definitely consider me to be brand loyal.

However, I will admit, it was a hugely time consuming project, and I likely will just focus on the monthly update photos for baby #2. I do think it’s important to have physical photographs of your little one versus a million sitting on a hard drive. Whether that means printing them off as regular photographs, making a photo book, creating a canvas, designing a coffee mug, or making a scrapbook, I encourage you to get those photographs off your computer and into your hands.
I would love to know how you document your little ones! Do you create photo books? Or print regular photos and put them into albums? Or maybe you’ve got other creative ideas? Please share them with me in the comments!
