what Photo & Story Treasures can do for your vacation photos

Summer vacation? Get the photos and memories preserved before they fade!  Today we'll look at the best way to do that.

The thing is:  your photos and memories are precious.  It's important to get the photos of the phone and the memories out of your head so they can be re-lived and re-loved.


There are lots of ways to preserve pictures and memories, but not all methods are equal.  Personally, my top criteria for preserving my photos and memories are:
  • QUALITY.  Oh my goodness, quality!  There are plenty of bargain-bin type products on the market, but I only want to spend time on memory-keeping ONCE.  I don't want to have to do it again after something falls apart.  Quality is HUGE to me.  I intend to preserve these things for me now and my children years from now, so I want something heirloom-quality.  Period.
  • SPEED/EASE.  I don't have a ton of time.  I definitely follow {this advice about making time} for my pictures and memories.  I mean, how often do you come across 4 free hours and think, "Hey, maybe I'll do something with my pictures."  Still, even though I prioritize making time for memory-keeping, I rather loathe wasting time.  I want something I can do quickly that's easy to duplicate (either single pages or whole books).
  • FLEXIBILITY.  I once sat down with a lady who had gone on the trip of a lifetime and made a digital photo book of her adventures.  She showed me the book but had to essentially narrate while I was turning pages.  The photo book company she had chosen didn't allow more than about a sentence of text per page, but she had so many more details in her memory than she was allowed to put on the page.  I thought it was pretty sad that she'd spent all that time creating something so special to her that didn't actually record her whole experience.  Sometimes my pictures are good with just names, dates, and places, but more often there's a whole story that goes with the experience or the event.  I don't want to be limited by the number of photos or amount of text I can include with my memories.  I want to actually record the memories from my vacation instead of just captioning my photos.
  • PRICE.  I definitely don't want something cheap for my precious memories and photos (see the "quality" bulletpoint), but I also need something that isn't expensive, either!   Options for spreading out the cost would be great, and so would sales
Do you think something like this actually exists?

It does!  {My best recommendations that fit all these requirements are right here.}  




These are not just your average "photo books," either.  You can design from scratch, of course, but there are also hundreds of easy-to-fill templates available.   

Maybe I should have called my "flexibility" bullet point "getting exactly what I want," because that's what I really mean!  ;)


Many people like digital books these days, but if you prefer scrap pages to bound books, that's an option, too!  


 

If you're concerned about digital photo storage, Photo and Story Treasures has you covered there, too.  {This post} with some important information on digital photo privacy and {this post} are everything you need to know.


So give it a try!  See what Photo and Story Treasures can do for your vacation photos!  

I'm guessing that most of your vacation photos just stay on your phone and don't often get SEEN.  And I'm guessing that if they're stuck on your phone, they'll never have their stories told.  Your pictures and memories need a PLACE to LIVE!  

Get those photos and memories into products so that they can be seen and loved!  That's what pictures are for!
