A mini photo book + a giveaway (win 5 of these books)

April 1, 2015

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for the next installment of my photography series.  Over the last three weeks I’ve shared some useful and actionable tips on photographing kids as well as some of the best photo filter apps to help turn those ordinary photos in to something special.  I’ve had some fantastic feedback on the series so far – so thank you all for that.  Today I want to talk about a really quick, easy and inexpensive way to do something with all those beautiful photo’s you’ve learned to take!  And there’s even a giveaway in today’s post so keep reading to find out more.

I’m not the most organised person when it comes to printing the photos I take especially the thousands (yes thousands) of photo’s I’ve collected on my iphone.  While I love the idea of creating amazingly big and beautiful photo books, I don’t always have the time to spend compiling these.  So when I recently found out about a brand new app called Pop book, I had to try it out especially for this series.  Pop book is an app that allows you to create little mini photo books in minutes, using pics from your iphone or ipad.  I’ve made a couple of books and it literally took me a few minutes.  You can do some basic editing in the app (like cropping, adding text or borders) and then you’re good to go, all for just £4.99 delivered to your door.  The books are square, small and very cute coming in two sizes of 10×10 or 13×13 cms, each consisting of 21 photos.

I can think of so many reasons for making Pop Books.  Firstly, that ever growing instagram feed.  You can turn your entire feed in to a series of mini photo books.  The square format of the books is perfect for this.  The other thing that sprung to mind was my mum-in-law and other family members (especially the older generation who aren’t on facebook) that constantly ask me for photos of Anya.  Instead of emailing one photo here and there, I’m going to start sending them these cute little books every few months.  Also, because these books are small, I like the idea of having two or three perched on my desk instead of a static frame or even in my kitchen where I might put up a string and hang a load of these mini photo books.  Yet another thought I had was to have these printed after your child’s birthday party and give to the parents of the kids who came – what a great party gift and lasting memory that would make.  So many ways to use this book.

You can do whatever you wish with these books but the absolute best part for me is the convenience of creating a book in minutes so that you have actual copies of your photos.  You never have to worry about photos being lost or deleted or wiped from your phone because you will have at least a small little hard copy.  And I also love the easiness of gifting these to family or friends.  All you need to do is download the free Pop Book app and you can start creating little photo books now.
