Is it just me or do you find yourself obsessing over having to get pictures at ALL of your family’s events. Regardless if they are actually special events or not.
NOTE: Some links are Affliate links, which means if you purchase a product through my link I will recieve a commission fee at NO EXTRA COST to you! So thank you for that so much. This compensation does not influence my opinion on my opinion found throughout this blog. I never promote anything I don’t believe in!
For me, if for some reason I can’t take pictures that will actually look decent(good lighting, kids looking all at once, no blurriness) it’s almost as if I could have a mental breakdown!
I start obsessing and worrying about the effects (that really only fall on me apparently) of not having picture memories of this event. It’s almost as if I can’t even calm myself down enough to enjoy the time and memories RIGHT IN FRONT of me, all over pictures.
My theory is when I get old and my memory is gone(feels like it’s half way there already most days) I will have those pictures to bring these precious memories back to me! I know I should be living in the present, not the future. I can’t help the older I get the more sentimental these little things become to me.
Just writing about this almost has me in tears. I think I become more emotional with age as well.
Anyway, you get the point, I take tons of pictures!!! I don’t regret them either! I can go back at anytime and look at all of each of my kids accomplishments, fun times, silly moments, and smile!
My HUGE problem is printing the pictures off my phone! Yes, I use my phone instead of a camera. It’s entirely more convenient for me and my phone takes pretty good pictures, most times. The problem is they stay on my phone and then eventually move on to my Google cloud, but they almost never get printed out unless I need it for a particular project or some other reason.
I don’t have one of those printer for phones because bring as thrifty as I am, I cannot convince myself to spend almost 200.00$ on a tiny printer that could get broken in s heartbeat around my 3 wild monkeys! I just can’t do it! If I come across one in a thrift store or yard sale for way cheaper, then I’ll begin using that!
For now though, I still needed a solution! I remember my mom ordering some type of picture book(two actually) when I was smaller and I can remember her sending mine and my sisters baby pictures onto the website and editing them how she liked. While I’m not sure what company she used at the time, the idea was fascinating! Now if only it wasn’t costing people an arm and leg, I would defiantly be interested in purchasing one myself!
So, remembering this, I got curious and started searching! There are plenty of sites these days that will take your pictures whether they are on your phone, sd card, or saved to your computer and create pictures books with them. However, alot of them are not reasonably priced! There are other aspects you want to look into before choosing the right company too! The most common features you want to compare are things such as: How many pictures do they allow in each book? Do they allow you to edit the arrangement, placement, and/or landscape and size in the actually book. I want to suggest the company I have chosen, Mixbook!
Mixbook’s software provides an excellent combination of flexible tools, great functionality and large searchable libraries of very appealing content, all in an interface that’s both easy and fun to use.The beautiful Mixbook photobook can handle varied selection of photos with no problem, delivers great color, exposure and clarity.
