Photobook Idea

March 1, 2012

I’m thinking that sometime this summer, I have to do one-on-one pics with my little Santiago, my middle child. Diego and I took these pictures back in 2009 with a dear friend and photographer Nancy Huayek. Nancy is based out of Chicago and great with children and families.
Once I received the pictures from Nancy, I hopped on to Kodak Gallery and created a photo book for Diego. I frame pictures, I make cards with pictures and I have a website with just pictures of the boys. But there is something extra special about making and giving your child their own book of just the two of you. I filled it with little love notes from Jose and I and I included the things that Diego enjoyed doing at 2 years old. It now sits on a side table in our living room and I sometimes catch Diego sitting and reading it. He will have the book forever and I will have the memories of playing with Diego at the park on that gorgeous fall day.

As soon as Santi turns 2, I will know enough about his little personality and he will be perfect for a photo shoot with Mami. I will then create another book just of the two us, just for him.

    Oh my.. This is adorable, I will defenatly try to find time to do something like this for my girls. I know that they will love it. I have so many beautiful pictures of them that I would need to make 20 books but I have to pick and choose the ones with more caracter. Thanks Betty for mentioning my work and I will be here waiting for you to come to Chicago and get this pictures taken. ๐Ÿ™‚
