A baby photo album is an item almost anyone reading this post will have a distinct memory of. Most likely, those memories include a much younger you, holding your own baby photo album full of photos your parents took. If you’re lucky, your baby album might include a few professional studio shots as well.
A Custom Designed Baby Album?
We all know times have changed, but this is especially true in the world of photography. Not long ago it was unheard of to have your photographer make a custom album of just any photo shoot you hired them for. Except for a wedding album, that has been standard procedure for many years. On the other hand, all other photo shoots were reserved to large prints on the wall.
Why? It was much harder to design and create photo albums before the introduction of digital photography. Shooting on film really limited the type of albums photographers could produce to our clients. We didn’t have design software such as Photoshop. Plus, in the days of film, photographers only had one type of album we could could make. It was the same matted album we provided to our wedding clients. The configurations of the matts were very restrictive plus the albums were only available in 3 different colors… black, brown and white.
The Times Are Changing!
Digital Cameras have opened up a whole new world of photography products available to all of us. The album industry is one in which those of us who have been professional photographers for years have witnessed extreme changes in. Gone are the days of taping prints behind matts and creating a book.
The albums I now offer clients are completely custom. My clients get to choose the cover material and color, text imprinting or no imprinting…. and so much more. The interior pages of the album are now designed in the computer, allowing endless possibilities for page layouts. The largest advantage of the new lay flat albums is there are no more photo matts! I can create a collage of images or even add page textures to the page layouts. I am no longer restricted to the type of matts offered by the album company. The new lay flat books are truly as unique as my client.
I recently delivered a custom designed, baby photo album to a few of my clients. The parents had brought their little one in for her first professional photo session.
This little girl’s parents were absolutely delighted with her arrival. They had been trying for quite some time to start a family and they were over the moon with joy! Honestly…. what better way celebrate her arrival than to have an album made? The book is filled photos capturing a very specific time in Bradley’s young life. Babies grow up so quickly! These images will help the family remember exactly what she was like in these younger days.
As you can see… their album is filled with unique photos . Photos telling a story about little Miss Bradley. I know, this album will be picked up, viewed and memories will be relived for years to come.
I can create custom albums from your family portraits, high school senior or headshot session as well. If you’d like to learn more don’t hesitate to ask for details. I’d love to show you all your options and discover the best option for you.
