Take some pictures. Make a book. Rinse. Repeat.
I have taken thousands and thousands of photos of Lucia since she was born and I have said thousands and thousands of times that I was going to compile my favorite shots and make a book. If you're a parent who is constantly taking pictures of your kid you know what I'm talking about -- somehow your computer turns into a digital vortex where pictures of your life go to hide.
I have printed a lot of our family photos for some albums and a few fun gallery walls for our home but I finally, FINALLY found the perfect and most lovely way to show off my little (ok, enormous) archive of pictures of my baby: a book by Pinhole Press.
I ordered a few copies of this beautifully executed book and I think some people (Lucia has four grandparents!) will be quite happy when they open their gifts this year. I know that this will be something that my parents and in-laws will really love. Like everything else I've made on Pinhole Press before, the quality is outrageous and the layout is so unique.
The site has a lot of different types of books to choose from and I think I'll try a softcover next for a collection of some of my portfolio pieces but for now I just cannot stop looking through this one. I am terribly indecisive and not the best editor but I had so much fun going through my photos and choosing favorites.
Anyway, if you'd like to check out some stuff for yourself, head over here and enter code CiaoChessa for 10% off your order for the rest of the year. Happy holidays and shopping!
