A beautiful photo book + a discount

Over the last several weeks, I’ve shared lots and lots of tips on taking better photos on iphones and DSLR’s. I’ve also shared tips on editing and organising your digital photos.  But perhaps the most important thing is what we do with all those thousands of photos.  Ultimately we all want to take photo’s for one reason and one reason only – to capture and immortalise those fleeting moments of our lives.  Those moments that mean so much to us.  Big life moments like the birth of a child or a wedding somehow always manage to get captured and usually put in to albums.  But it’s the hundreds of everyday photo’s and everyday memories that often get left sitting on a hard drive somewhere.  And those are the very moments that make up our lives.

When Anya was born I decided I would make a photo book or album to document each year of her life.  One book, once a year – how hard can that be?  I did it for the first two years and then just gave up for lack of time and even laziness.  But starting this photo series made me realise just how precious our photos are and how I needed to get them off my laptop and phone and on to paper.  A few weeks ago I shared some mini photo books which are great for quick little albums especially for giving to friends and family.  Today it’s about making forever photo books that I will hand down to Anya and hopefully one day my grandchildren (and beyond) will see it too.  And there’s a special reader discount for you too.

I’ve searched high and low for the best and most beautiful photo books around and I think it has to be Artifact Uprising.  Making a book from there has probably been on my to do list for two years and I finally did it.  I chose the 8.5″ square format photo book because I love that shape but there is also a beautiful hardback cloth bound book that I will probably choose to make next time.  I made a book documenting our life for a year from when Anya turned five.  This included any holidays we took in that year and also just moments we want to remember like her Halloween costume, her 5th birthday party, her first school performance and so much more.

Artifact Uprising keep it simple and that’s why their photo books and other photo products are so stunning.  I also love the matte, recycled paper they use – no shine in sight!  I want my forever photo books to last forever and I know these will.  These books are special and take time to make so it’s not about making them all the time but instead, just one a year.  I’m feeling inspired to do something with all my important photo’s so that I can touch and hold them whenever I want.  I hope today you too are inspired to get printing those beautiful memories of yours.  Whatever you do, don’t leave them on that hard drive!

    The photo book looks incredible. I know what you mean. I have started books with my boys and because of time and budget I am so behind and now with another one to create books for…maybe when they are in college I can finish their books.

      Ha, ha! That’s just how it goes sometimes. But just do it – you will regret it if you don’t. Compromise elsewhere but photos are so important I think.

    Love this photobook, and you have chosen some incredible photos! Also the best Xmas presents for grandparents.

      Yes! So true. Anya’s grandparents LOVE getting pics of her and keep asking for more and more. Maybe I will make one of these books for their Xmas present this year.

    They don’t ship to UK and app isn’t available on UK store. Such a shame the books look lovely

      Hi Lindsey – they do ship worldwide and definitely to the UK. It’s just not very easy to find the shipping on their site – it’s under ‘HELP’. And here is the link -http://help.artifactuprising.com/support/solutions/articles/3000010978-do-you-ship-internationally-
