I do use snapfish and create photobooks online.
I make sure to print off pictures every month and at least stick them in a photo album. I take maybe an hour over the course of a few days and jot notes next to each picture, so I don't forget those moments. Then I set up project times (like next month when I have a 3 week break from school) that's when I make online photobooks and edit to make them really special.
So I'm hearing that you not only print out hard copes of each photos, but you also create a photobook print copy too? Is that right that you do both? So you would have 2 hard copies of every photo?
I didn't want to print out all the photos just because they are too much (and it'll be taking up a lot of space as they add up), but I don't really have a way of jotting down notes next to the digital photos so I can wait until I can sit down and compile the photobook with those note/journals later. Any suggestions on being able to easily jot down some quite notes about the moments associated to specific photos without printing out the photos? (I want to use the notes when I actually compile the whole photobook)
Another question, how often do you create a photobook? My first photobook consisted of my child's 2-4 month old photo collection (doesn't even have any notes/journals) (I skipped making anything for birth and first month), and then I never did another book again and he is almost 9 months now. Do you have one photobook per, say, 6 months, a year, or what? and how many pages do each of these photobooks have? Just wanted to get an idea of how much photographing you do and how much you make them into products like photobooks.... Because to me all the photos are overwhelming, I don't take photos all the time, but when I do, I take a lot of the same shot to make sure I get a good shot (because the baby moves so much and you can never get a clear shot), and I end up having to screen through possibly 20-30 shots of the same thing trying to pick out a good one).
