First Year Collective Album

First Year Collection Album Info

Thank you for trusting me to capture your child’s first year!

The 12” square Hardcover Album included in your First Year Collection has 20 spreads (a spread is the two individual pages you see when you open a book).  The spread design, font and linen color are your choices.

The simple steps to designing your heirloom album:

  1. Choose your images.

    The choice of which images to include in the album is yours. Through your online gallery, create a Favorites list named “Album”, and begin to ‘heart’ images into the album. I recommend 2-4 images per spread — for a 20 spread album, this would be 40-80 images. (If you’re finding that you’d like more pages, each additional spread you’d like to add is $10.) When you’re happy with your selection, send me an email!

  2. Review spread design.

    I will take your chosen images and design an album through an online proofing site for you. Once complete, I’ll send along a link for you to review.

  3. Request revisions & finalize design.

    You’ll be able to request any changes such as order of the images, replacing images and page design, made easy through the online proofing site. You’ll have up to 2 revision cycles, and then your design will be final!

  4. Choose linen color and embossing.

    The last step is to confirm your linen color and the exact words you’d like embossed on your cover.

  5. Anticipate your album!

    Once I’ve confirmed all details with you, I’ll place the order. Once it arrives, I’ll make sure everything looks great and mail it to you, along with your USB drives.
