The best way to preserve memories with your kids.
If you’ve been following along for awhile, you know I love pictures. Contrary to what it might look like, I actually have two kids but only one of them really likes to pose for pictures. Sometimes I have to bribe him to take a few photos but whatever, I’m not above bribery.
Do you know why? Because one day, pictures will be all they have. When I’m gone and they have families of their own, it will be important for them to have pictures from their childhood and pictures that include me in them. I take a ton of pictures of them daily. And sure, those are special too. But think about the pictures you have of you and your own parents. They’re gold, right?
These photos are from one of my favorite photoshoots last year. My photographer NAILED my vision and everything was perfect. The lighting, the emotions, all of it. I am SO backed up on baby books but have found that the Shutterfly Make My Book service is a lifesaver. And the best way to preserve memories with your kids.
The Make My Book process is super easy and it allows me to be in the moment, capturing the moments, instead of sitting in front of the computer for hours assembling the books.
So want to know what I plan on doing? Making a book for each year of the kiddos lives. As well as special events and pictures I always want to remember. I cannot wait to have an entire shelf of all of these books sitting on our shelves in the living room. It always brings back the best memories looking through them and my kids will have them to look back on when they are older.
Some of the best gifts you can give your children are your attention, love, memories, and photos of you doing all of the above. These books are priceless and will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.
Be sure to check out the Shutterfly Make My Book service and get your first book started 🙂 It’s as easy as uploading your favorite pictures and sitting back as it gets designed. Don’t believe me? Go try it!

I love taking pictures of my children. I am an avid scrapbooker, but have ordered photo books as well. They will only have from their childhood what we save for them

These pictures are so precious!!!
Shutterfly has so many amazing ways of preserving memories and they always have great discounts too, which doesn’t hurt at all lol.
I’ve been meaning to get a family photo shoot done and when I do I’m definitely going to get a photo book made!

I love this post. I have been debating on whether get pictures printed and you have convinced me. You are right, one day pictures is all our children will have of us. Your daughter is so adorable as well.
