CREATING A PHOTO BOOK: 10 IDEAS FOR EVOCATIVE ALBUMS
Creating a Photo book means telling a story. Stories of excitement and drama. And stories that celebrate the everyday beauty of life.
Whatever story you want to share, the best photo books awaken vivid memories of the people, places and emotions you have experienced. Before you make your own photo book, take a look and get some inspiration from these ten creative and evocative photo book ideas.
Your little one’s first years and milestones.
The first few years of a baby’s life are a joyful whirl of change. They go from newborn to toddler in the flash of an eye (even if it doesn’t feel that way when you’re up doing late night feeds!).
Remember your little one at each new stage by creating a photo book of baby firsts. Photos of their first outing, first food and first steps will provide a treasured record of all the growing and learning your baby did during those first few years.

An Everyday Love Story
It’s the little things….
Wedding photo books tell breath-taking love stories. But you can also celebrate the precious relationship you and your other half share by focusing your album on simple, everyday acts of love.
Cups of tea in bed or an unexpected bunch of flowers. Cooking dinner together or the two of you strolling hand in hand. Create a photo book that tells your own unique story of love.

The City that Stole My Heart
A traveller’s love story
Whether you’ve visited just the once or think of it as your second home, create a custom photo book dedicated to the city that stole your heart.
Cityscapes, portraits of people you met and little architectural and foodie details will allow you to walk those city streets whenever wanderlust strikes.

Charlie, Aged 7
A snapshot of childhood.
The best way to capture the imagination and wonder of childhood? Involve your kids in creating a photo book.
But don’t be afraid to tell your story differently. It’s perfectly possible to create a photo book narrative based on aesthetics, particularly if you’re covering a short period of time like a holiday or a celebration.
Ask them to photograph the things they love; their favourite people, places, toys… Then complement their photography with your own perspective.
Thoughtful portraits coupled with written memories – funny things they’ve said, a poem they wrote at school, for example – create an incredible picture of your little ones at a particular moment in time.
