Blurb books: Beck's first two years
So for months (ahem, ten) I had been meaning to make a baby photo book of Beck's first year. I've been trying to get better at having photos you can actually hold in your hands but I felt overwhelmed at the process of getting them together and "creating" a book which is why it got left undone for so long. Now that he's two I thought I might as well combine the first two years into one book! Blurb reached out a couple months ago and I knew I couldn't pass up a chance to partner with them. I had seen their books before and they are STUNNING. The whole process was SO easy and fun, I'm kicking myself for not doing this sooner. It is super customizable—size, paper, photo placement, etc—and the actual process of uploading and inserting the photos in the order you want is a breeze.
When I got the book in the mail yesterday I cried. It is so incredibly beautiful (plus baby photos.. come on!). I'm so happy I finally did this, to have all these super special photos in one place is wonderful. I ordered extra copies for Christmas presents too! Grandparents, pretend you didn't see that yet. :)
For my book I got the hardcover 7x7 book with full page photos (no white frame) and matte paper. You can browse around and see all the options on Blurb. They have a ton of inspiring ideas. If you've been like me and have procrastinated forever, just do it already! You'll be SO happy you did!
