First year albums! These are my favorite baby albums to do. It’s fun to see them go from squishy sleepy newborns, to figuring out how to sit up, to toddlers that are almost walking by themselves!

Amy Lemaniak sent me this album recently of one of her baby plan clients. The family already has two older girls, who I’m sure are going to completely spoil their new little sister. Everyone always says kids grow up so fast, and giving your baby plan clients an album is a great way to slow that down a bit. Plus, when the sisterly rivalries start up, you can remind them how much they all love each other!

This album is 8×8, 20 pages/10 spreads with 24 images.

For the 8×8 size, I generally prefer to keep to one photo per page, maybe a few pages with more photos if they’re closeups, for a collage look. ‘Less is more’ is never more true; just because I have 100+ photos to use, doesn’t mean I’ll use anywhere close to that!
