Mother’s Day is just around the corner which means now is the perfect time to start thinking about how you can make this Mother’s Day extra special. Even though you should be reminding your mum just how much she means to you on a regular basis, Mother’s Day is the one day you can treat you mum and go the extra mile. Make this year’s Mother’s Day memorable, forget the flowers and a card why not get something more personal? A photo book is a great, fun way to show your mum just how much she means to you and provides hours of reminiscent entertainment. We all know mums like to get out our childhood photographs out whether it be to embarrass us in front of friends, partners or to reminisce on past memories, so why not give her the gift that lets her look through all of those treasured moments again.
Creating the perfect photobook requires planning and effort, a quick scramble of Facebook pictures definitely won’t cut it this time! Never fear – here at Pixa Prints we like to think of ourselves as experts when it comes to the photo book front so we’ve put together a 3-step guide on how to make the perfect photobook for your mum this Mother’s Day. All you need to do is familiarise yourself with the scanner and the rest is easy! We guarantee this will pull at your favourite lady’s heart strings this Valentine’s Day.
#1 Tell A Story
The most memorable and emotive photo books are ones that tell a story, try to find all the photographs that you can of your early childhood right up until the present day, this way you can take your mum through a journey of your life together. This is where the scanner comes in handy as it’s unlikely your earliest baby photos will be on social media! A great way to start your story is to find an image of you as a newborn, preferably of you and your mum together and continue to tell your story through the years picking out notable life events. Once you’ve found all the images you would like to include you need to get organised, this will make the creation progress a lot easier.
Collate all of your images by creating a folder on your desktop and number each image into the order you would like them to appear in the photo book. When you upload to Pixa Prints, the images will remain in this order, and all you need to choose is the number of photo you’d like on each page! A somewhat boring but useful tip!
#2 Include Quotes
Not everyone is a wordsmith and we find that more often than not people struggle to put their feelings into their own words and this is where quotes will be your saviour. The internet and social media are full of poignant and heartfelt quotes ready to show your mum just how loved she is. There are a couple of options you can choose when it comes to incorporating quotes into your photobook; the first being scouring the internet for images containing quotes, Pinterest is a great platform full of beautiful quotes and imagery. You will need to save these images and upload them with your photographs. Your second option is finding the quotes online, picking a few of your favourite ones and typing them into your personalised photo book with your chosen photographs.
#3 Make It Personal
Make the ultimate personal touch by adding a few of your own words, whether it’s simply wishing your mum a happy Mother’s Day or a personal paragraph on why she is the best mother. Take your time with this, a little bit of effort goes a long way!
