online photobooks are an easy and relatively inexpensive project for your session photos (or, if you are like me, any digital files you might have languishing, forgotten, and tucked away in lonely folders on your desktop). photobooks make meaningful gifts, interesting conversation pieces and poignantly sentimental keepsakes. i use snapfish for my family albums, mostly because i started storing my photos there in 2005 - they keep them in chronological order, and i can go back and order prints or products any time. but there are many companies out there that provide similar services. one fab thing about these online photo services is that they store your images free of cost year after year. simply create an account - no credit card needed - and begin the uploading process. with snapfish, you can also upload directly from instagram, facebook, or cellphone. there is even a snapfish app that helps you upload and organize images on the fly! their albums come in all shapes and sizes, softback and hardback with various cover options from dust-jacket to cut-out. the layouts and page themes are endless - you can have photos cover every square inch, or you can use titles or longer descriptions for certain events. they can be displayed on a coffee table (mine are stacked on a side-chair) or even artistically placed on an easel. and by the way, if you begin the creation of your photobook today, but don't get back to it until may, it's okay! they save it for you! you can continue your work whenever you wish. i normally complete a project, and then wait for a sale. time to get started!
