If you are creating a photo album for your baby for the first time, or
are unsure where to begin in creating a scrapbook of your baby's first
year, here are some tips to make it quick and easy to preserve your
photos and memories:
Rather than including every photo you take of your baby, organize your
pictures according to the month they were taken and chose a few of your
favorites from each month.
You can make single page or several pages from each particular month and stage of development without having to spend a large amount of time gluing every single photo into your scrapbook.
Be sure and include birth announcements and baby shower invitations as a special touch.
Keep a notebook or calendar within easy reach to record milestones in
your child's development. You can then coordinate the events on your
calendar with the month-by-month photos.
It is always a good idea to keep an ongoing journal of special times in your baby's life so that you can include those moments in your scrapbook. It does not have to be elaborate or detailed, just a few special dates and events that you can include as text next to your pictures.
