Idea #1004 Photo Books: The best way to safely hold your memories

Any parent will tell you, one of the best feelings they have is watching their child perform and achieve greatness in their chosen athletic pursuit. Many of our smartphones are loaded with images of a child running down a field, on stage with their dance troupe, or performing a special skill they have mastered.

As parents, we sometimes forget all the steps it took to get to a high performance level (such as a Varsity Team in High School), as life can get busy. One of the best ways to retain those early memories, easily and beautifully, is to document and create a custom photo book that details your child’s sports life. Creating this themed book is easy.

Things to consider:

  • Is this the first time your child has played this activity?
  • Why did he or she choose this specific sport?
  • How often does your child compete? Is it a weekly or daily commitment?
  • How does the activity impact your family?

Planning the layout of your book before choosing the photos you have collected will make the creative process easier and enjoyable. Be sure to include action images and imperfect pictures as this makes your book more meaningful.
