A Solution for Photo-Printing Procrastination

Thanks to Picaboo for sponsoring this post. To learn more about Picaboo photo books, cards, calendars and other printed products visit Picaboo’s website. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.



The other day, a relative sent my kids a couple family photos that had been printed at Target.  My kids were so excited to see these photos.  “It’s a real picture!”, my daughter exclaimed.  She carried it around the house like a prized treasure.  A sad fact dawned on me in that moment: since having kids, I have been terrible about printing photos.   I do take a ton of family pictures, but most of them are curated online, either on my blog, or in files on my computer.  I have four kids, and only two of them have a printed photo book of their first year.  I have not printed a single yearly photo book of their first year.  I manage to get great family portraits done at Christmas, and yet there is no physical record of them in my house . . . only on my computer.

It’s so bad that I interviewed a babysitter recently at my home, and she asked if I had a picture of the kids around, and the only thing I could do was pull out my laptop.  Not a single printed photo of my family exists in my house.

I am trying to change this, and so I was really excited to try Picaboo’s services.  They offer a number of photo printing services, including gorgeous full-sized, high-resolution photobooks.  I started feeling ambitious about getting the baby books done for my last two children, but then decided I needed to focus on our most recent family pictures.

I downloaded their program, which took about five minutes.  I like the fact that the program downloads to my computer, and then publishes the book once I’m doing.  I didn’t have to worry about a slow connection or losing my place if l lost my internet connection.  It was really quick to add my photos.  I also loved that it auto-filled the pages for me.  There were a number of design options, but I chose a simple white background with a classic frame.  Rearranging and resizing the photos was really simple.  I think it took me about an hour to create this photobook.

Once I was finished, it “published” the book and I was able to order it online.  I am really looking forward to seeing the finished product, and it inspired me to start on those baby books after all.
