We had an amazing summer. As you know, we traveled to the Blue Ridge Mountains with my husband’s entire family, and the views were breathtaking. I always find myself snapping about five zillion photos on these summer vacations, because there is so much to take in and I want to capture it all. One way I’ve recently started documenting these trips is by choosing some of my favorite pictures and having them printed as a photo book. I had our mountain vacation photos printed as a premium hardcover photo book from Snapfish, and I was beyond impressed with the quality. It’s like a coffee table book — the cover has a smooth, suede-like feel, and the pages are heavier in weight and definitely look high quality. (Stay tuned for a giveaway at the end of this post!) I opted for the Premium Layflat Hardcover Photo Book in the 11×14 size.
Snapfish Photo Books are awesome because the design tools are super easy to use so you can get as creative as you want when designing your layout. I also love that their site is tablet and smartphone friendly, so you can create your books on the go. You can add and save your photos to your Snapfish account from almost anywhere, including Instagram. I love that they have premade layout templates that you can choose from, but you also have the option of designing your own layout from scratch.
I decided to create my own layout, and I wanted mostly large photos spanning each page. (The photo below is one of my favorite photos in the history of ever. He had no idea I was taking this picture.)
I did design a few pages with photo collages, combining some close-up detailed shots with landscapes and portraits.
My boys enjoyed checking it out and reminiscing about our trip. (Here are 2 of my 3 boys taking a look at it.)
