Week 28′s challenge was to organize your photos. For older photos, years ago I digitized all of the pictures I had in my photo albums and got rid of any photos I didn’t like or want. Then, I created a couple photobooks out of them using a company called Blurb. (I’ve also used Shutterfly for other photobook projects and really like them as well.) The first one I did was for my years in college. Then I created one from a little before my birth until I left for college. It was a lot of work, but it was well worth it. And I much prefer pulling out the photobook to look at than a photo album. My mom really like how the photobooks turned out, so I’ve created several for her as well.
For more recent photos, I take digitial pictures and rarely have a physical photo to deal with. Until I create another photobook, I keep the photos on my computer (by year and then month, and sometimes by event if I have a lot of photos from one event). Now that I’m getting married, I plan to create a photobook from after college until I get married. I’ll also create one after the wedding with all of our wedding photos.
