Why You Should Start Creating Photo Books Early in Your Child’s Life

It’s a natural parental nature to want to take photos of everything our little ones do. They are so cute, after all! The room lights up when they smile.

But why not take it a step further? Keeping all your photos for yourself in your phone aren’t going to do anyone any good. Let your child see them too. You can make yourself a photo book out of social media posts and enjoy remembering those special years with your child. Read on to find out why we think you should create your own photobooks.

To keep track of milestones

When you’re a kid, every milestone is important. Acknowledging them is important to encouraging more. Before you know it, you’ll have a child with an amazing work ethic because they know the rewards.

But not all achievements need to be academic. If they have a hobby, or a need to try every class in their school, take photos when they achieve something in these classes. You will not only encourage good work, and for them to overcome challenges, but you could be nurturing a passion that might well stay with them the rest of their lives.

To capture memories

18 years can go by really quickly. You might not think so now, but one day you’re going to look back and wonder where the years have gone.

And what will you be looking at while you wonder? Your photo album of course. It will be filled with a collection of days out, school activities, personal achievements, old friends and plans for the future.

You can see your child’s entire life play out in front of you, and crucially, so can they. The early years can be a blur. We’re so busy trying to learn what a tree is and what letter it begins with that we don’t have much space in our developing minds. So having a photo book nearby, perhaps with photos of people who are no longer with us or places we had to leave behind will help them to remember.

To share with others

Sure, social media is designed so that you can share snippets of your life with your people, but it can be a very shallow experience. A swipe, a like, and it’s over.

Having physical photos handy means you can share your life on a deeper level. Have you ever got together with a newly wedded couple to see the wedding photos? It’s a communal experience where you can get everyone around and prompt stories about the day. It’s the same idea with your children. Family can come by and enjoy a tea or drink while you explain that he couldn’t decide between Harry Potter or Transfomers for Halloween so now he’s a Bot Who Lived.

Take a look at My Social Book to see how you can create your own photo album out of your social media account photos. You can collect all the snaps of your little one you post regularly to your family and friends and allow them to see them in person. Keep it as a coffee table book and let your guests browse through and see the conversations that start up with it.

And of course, break it out to embarrass them with when they bring their girlfriend home for the first time.
