7 Reasons Why You Should Make a Family Photobook, Even When You Hate Your Pictures Because You Think You're Fat
This is the time of year I create my annual Family Photobook for the previous year. So far I have created 16 since 2000 when my second daughter was born. I always have two copies made, one for each of my girls. For now I keep a copy at my house and another at my mom's, in case of fire.
On the cover of each photobook is my favorite photo of the kids. When I line them up side by side, I see how quickly they're growing!
Unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of pictures of me in them. I've always hated having my photo taken, always disappointed with how fat I look.
How sad to think that my daughters have so few images of me in their treasured books!
Fortunately, their 2017 book will be filled with photos of me (whether they like it or not!). Since I lost 50 lbs, I love having my photo taken, and I actually look as good in them as I feel.
Here are 7 reasons why you should create your own family photobook:
- It creates a record of your family life for future generations (my main purpose). It's not so much about the photos, but the moments and memories they represent.
It forces you to get your best photos out of your computer, so you can easily look at them over and over again.
A photobook is beautiful and fun to look through, much less bulky than a photo album (and easier than wading through thousands of forgotten photos on your computer).
It encourages you to take better pictures, because you know you'll be putting them in your book the following year.
It is affordable and easy to do - just Google Search online photo shops for the best deals (Costco is a great one).
The photos they contain are laid out to tell a story. You can create a theme, add text, and change the image sizes. You can get really creative!
More importantly, a photobook builds a meaningful connection between you and the person you're viewing it with.
So if you are avoiding the camera because you think you're fat, I'm here to tell you that you CAN lose the weight and learn to love having your photo taken too! Your family will thank you - for generations to come!
You just need to take the first step.
