These days, with my new(ish) DSLR in hand, and a personal challenge to improve my photography, I get pretty snap happy on some of our seasonal adventures. We have a harddrive groaning under the weight of thousands of photographs, and so far I have been very infrequent with printing stuff out. Partly because when I do so, the photos tend to stay in boxes and not get looked at.
I've been wanting to print photo books for a long time now, but the task just feels too huge. That is one task for the totally dedicated, and I never feel quite up to it. However, I recently had the brainwave to print photo books for each season, a new set each year. They would then serve the dual purpose of preserving our precious memories, as well as reminding us of all the lovely things that each season brings.
I thought I would include lists of favourite activities, written memories, illustrations, and maybe even a recipe or two. Because I can just do a season at a time, the task is less overwhelming, more fun, and I can have a little bit more creative freedom as there will be fewer photos to include. I'm pretty thrilled about the idea, and I'm off to work on my Summer '12/'13 right now! Let me know if you are inspired to do the same, and maybe we can share some ideas x
