Creating Fall Memories with Blurb

August 4, 2016
This post is a partnership between Blurb and Unlikely Martha. I take lots of pictures of my babies, and being compensated to share with you the importance of creating tangible memories of your life and family was a no brainer.

Fall is hands down my absolute favorite time of the year. As sacrilege as it sounds, please miss me with the pumpkin flavored everything rhetoric. Carving, patches and picking are the depth of my obsession with pumpkins. I like my fall crisp, cool, and earth toned. The soundtrack is that of leaves crunching underfoot and the smells render themselves to apple pies baking and Bath and Body Works Leaves scented candles.

Annually at the peak of leaf season, I grab my camera and my two reluctant muses and head out to the park for a fall photo shoot. This happens once a year and EVERY year they make me want to holler but I do it anyway because these years pass so swiftly and one day I know they will thank me for capturing these memories.

If I might be honest, those fall photos from the past few years live in my Dropbox and online. Not a print to be had.

Not. One.

In an effort to do better I was thrilled to be contacted to partner with Blurb to create a fun memorable photo book. I knew exactly what I would put in mine and went to work on the Blurb site creating a book of my babies’ most recent fall shoot.

The platform is super easy to use. While it is compatible with some of the more technical design programs such as InDesign and Lightroom where integration is possible, I opted to use the desktop publishing software BookWright to create mine.

The hardest thing about creating my masterpiece was deciding on which photos to use and whether to go with the book or magazine option. Yes, you can make magazines with this software.

A variety of other options available within the software are:

  • Standard Portrait 8×10”
  • Standard Landscape 10×8”
  • Small Square 7×7
  • Large Square 12×12”
  • Large Landscape 13×11”
  • Any cover options (image wrap, dust jacket, soft cover) of your choosing.
  • Any paper options (Standard, Premium, ProLine) of your choosing.
  • Magazines: 8.5X11

Friends, let’s get out of the habit of letting our hard drives, clouds and phones be the only ones privy to the captured beauty of our everyday lives. Let’s create photo books and tangible prints that can be saved and passed down. These memories are important and creating memorable books to send to grandparents and loved ones can be a new tradition to start.
