I really like to get some of my photos living somewhere outside the computer. (for anyone wondering, I print our family album thru My Publisher. The price is super reasonable and I'm satisfied with the quality). Also, in the way of getting pictures outside the computer, I just finished a HUGE canvas print order and Big Dude got busy hanging everything up. I'll share those pictures soon ...

what wonderful family memories... and that scene of the mountains and lakes...i hope that's one that you printed on canvas!! breath-taking!!

Love it!! I have actually made some progress on 2008, the year I skipped. I learned the hard way that in my world vacations have to have their own little book or they overwhelm the yearbook.

Can't wait to see the canvases!

Patty - the River picture was a contender, but didn't end up making the cut (I was worried about some of its "noise" being visible in a big size).

Yay, Tracy, keep chipping away at it!

Becky - God has blessed me oodles for sure!

These are beautiful pages. I use my publisher too...they do a nice job. I wish I would have had digital when my kids were young. Hmmmm. We will have our 30th anniversary next year. I've been thinking about a giant photo book with highlights from the years...maybe I should start now!

My goodness ... this is the neatest thing! Although I read your blog every day, to see the pictures like that is just awesome! Do you make a copy to give each child when they grow up, or do you just keep one copy for the home? So, so cool! Destiny

Skeller said...

Thanks, Destiny :-). I order one for home and one for each set of grandparents. If the boys express interest in having a copy when they grow up, we have 3 copies we can divvy up ... But, y'know, boys. What's the likelihood they'll want such a thing?!? ;-)

i LOVE LOVE LOVE this... how on earth did you accomplish it? Ive tried the physical scrap book method...but now with online capacity...seems that is more ecofriendly. You photographs are STUNNING!!!

This is such an inspiration to me to get the photos off my computer and make something with them! Gorgeous...

Dian said...

Beautiful pictures!!! I was curious on what camera do you use?
Also, have you tried other photobook companies?? I tried for my first and only -so far- travel photobook MyPublisher, but seems that some pictures didn't turn out as good as I expected.
Thanks again

Hi Dian-
I usually shoot with a Canon 5d. I've only ever used MyPublisher for my personal family albums. :-)
