Family Photo Books

I just finished printing several of my kids' baby books that I've been working on for awhile now. I'm really happy with the way they turned out. For each year of their lives I do a photo shoot of them and then I design a book with journal entries and milestones from the last year. I like to start with birth, include hospital pictures and their birth story. All of the books are 8x8 and I tried a 5x5 duplicate of Jack's 1 year book just to check it out- the last picture- it turned out cute maybe I'll do that for Christmas presents next year we'll see. I am a little on the slower side because I do all the design work, but it's really neat to have "pseu-do," published work and know that I (and occasionally Johnny, when he has some time) did all the work from home; hopefully that will make it more meaningful for my kids.

I really like the idea of the picture books. Did you print them from a company on line? I would love to do something like that for my kids. Great work!
