I've been working on finding the perfect album for over two years now. I wanted not just a typical layflat option, but also an unbound box to chose from. Something that the kids and family could all enjoy while sitting around the living room, passing photos back and forth. It had to be aesthetically pleasing, so it could sit in plain sight on a shelf or entertainment stand without becoming an eyesore. Something people might inquire about, but also able to blend into each family's décor.
Individual photo sleeves make this safe (ish) for kids and relatives with grubby fingers :P
I've searched tons of companies and finally settled on one small business vendor who makes these by hand. Eventually I'll have 2-3 to chose from, but currently I'm totally in love with this nontraditional photo album. Each photo is hand selected by my client, then carefully edited before being printed on a high quality photo paper from a pro lab. The box includes 35+ of your favorite photographs, along with a photo stand and custom USB drive which has digital copies of your photographs.
Handcrafted artwork meets a stress free, fun session. Husbands routinely thank me for not making them bend in awkward positions and smile horribly. We tell jokes, let the kids be kids, and I'll even allow men to wear baseball caps if it makes them happy (yes, some men refuse to de-hat, which in my eyes means they should be wearing it in photos anyways).
What are your thoughts on this new product? Would you like to have an unbound album? If you're a past client, CONTACT ME for a discounted rate. With the new year a few things are changing, but I hope all of my future clients end up receiving a gorgeous handcrafted album. Keep an eye out for new options and the new layflat album I'm dying to reveal!
