Regular readers of this blog will already know how much I love photos, I love the stories they tell, the memories they evoke and the timeless beauty of them. I love to share them with others (I know…perhaps a little too much!) but they really are such a wonderful medium.
The variety in the layouts is amazing but if you don't like any of the styles listed you can just drag and drop to make your own vision come to life!
If you don't have the patience or time to fiddle around with the photos you can ask Snapfish to do it for you on auto and then keep shuffling the pages until you have the style you want.
Then it is time to add text if you want to. I didn't use text on every page but I probably would if making a photo book to display special family moments or as a keepsake book just for the kids. For promotional purposes I just added a few descriptive lines here and there…
It was a good way to group some of the popular areas of the environment and activities together and communicate some important themes offered in my service.
You can be creative with the text choosing from numerous fonts and colours. I just stuck with bold and simple as you can see!
I created mine as a compilation and reflection of Jode's Family Day Care in 2013 and both children and parents have enjoyed flicking through it together. It has proven extremely useful on new enquiry and enrolment visits.

What an awesome idea to have a book like this – I’ve visited many childcare centers/family daycares and would love to see a personalized record of what the carer/group does every day!
I would love to create a book to tell my boys about where their names came from – as they were named after qualities we love and people we respect. Thanks for sharing!
