Congratulations mamma, you’ve made the perfect little human! No doubt you’ve also already created a million memories with bub and want to find a way to display them. Creating a photobook of your baby is the perfect way to capture this special time in your child’s life.
Here are five tips to consider when making the perfect photobook of your baby.
1. Decide on a visual style
Whether you prefer a colourful theme or a more muted tone, deciding on a visual style will make it easy to keep the design of the photobook of your baby consistent. Also consider whether your baby’s photobook will be completely visual, or incorporate text or non-visual elements.
2. Highlight your favourite moments
Most mums will have thousands of photos of their babies. We understand that you want to capture every moment, but carefully curating highlights of your child’s life will ensure that every page of your baby’s photobook is special.
3. Think about the content
A photobook of your baby will obviously include photos, but is there any other type of content that you want to memorialise forever? These could include different statistics, like how much they weighed when they were born, or how tall they were on their first birthday.
It might also include different kinds of imagery, such as their footprints on the day they were born, drawings they’ve done or 1st birthday cards. Understanding the content you want to include in your photobook will help you decide where to place everything.
4. Create a story
Another factor to consider when creating a photobook of your baby is the story you want to tell. Most baby photobooks are organised chronologically, but maybe you want your book to be a list of firsts, such as their first step, first haircut, first holiday? Maybe the story is a collection of adventures that your baby has had with their teddy bear or blanket. Think about creative ways you can tell a story that is specific to your child.
