Actual photo albums, not fb ones Do any of you print photos out and put them into an album? I haven't done it for years and the only reason I have a couple of photo albums of N's first year or so plus christening is because my dad is a keen photographer and prints all his own photos so did mine. We have ours on the computer and backed up onto an external hard drive but I like to flick through proper albums now and then and so does Nicholas. (not that we even have space for them but hey ho.) So I need to start at around 2010 We still haven't done a wedding album either which is something we must do!

I have loads of albums. For some reason, I stopped printing them when C was 3, (2006/2007) so have loads on discs I need to print.
I haven't got a wedding album, only been married 19 months...
My Mum was married on 18th May this year, and has already put an album together.

We did our own wedding album, we didn't have a proper photographer so we've not got anything posh.
We've started doing photobooks rather than photoalbums. When somewhere has an offer on i usually put together a photobook. I've just done one of S's first year from the day he was born until his 1st birthday.

They don't take up so much space Lindtbunny, which is why i like them, and normally, there is an offer on somewhere so they don't cost too much. I think the last one i got i paid about £10 for, which by the time i've either bought ink and photopaper, or been and had some photos printed off, there isn't a lot of difference in the price.

I'm terrible for printing out photos, which makes me a total hypocrite obviously. I do have lots of prints, canvasses and the like on my walls though. My house is like an art gallery in that respect. Photobooks are a great idea, lots of HPAD'ers do them.
I was at my Nan's recently going through her old photos, she has them all in a bashed up old suitcase and I just love sitting there with a cuppa rooting through the pictures. My Grandad was a very good photographer on the quiet.

We did our wedding album on photo box, but it took me ages to get it he way I liked it. Looks great though. Other than this though I am rubbish at getting photos printed. Maybe I should try and do a yearly one to capture all he highlights of that year. Might be easier than lots of smaller ones for each event.

I've got loads of printed photos but not in albums, just in packs in the cupboard. I really need to put all the ones I haven't printed onto discs just in case our lap top goes kaput.

I don't print out photos but at the end of each year i do a photobook for that year, i started it in 2005 and Zoe loves flicking through them.
