A Photo a Week

Uploaded: Jan 25, 2014
As an avid scrapbooker, I love taking photos of my son. It's a rare day when I don't take my camera out at least once for that candid shot.

But I'm sure for some, these photos become a burden. It's easy to snap them, but it can be daunting to edit out blurry images and to organize thousands of photos. Unless you enjoy it, few are printed.

I'm sure the number of pictures I take per month will decrease almost exponentially as my son grows up. Few teenagers enjoy smiling for the camera on holidays let alone on a random Tuesday night.

So although it may not be possible to continue the tradition for the long haul, we are having a great time sending distant relatives a photo a week. It is a nice opportunity for me to look through a week's worth of photos- much less daunting than a couple of years worth- edit them, choose favorites to print, and reminisce.

At the end of the year, we ended up with a wonderful collection of 52 photos (which some of my relatives have printed off and put together into their own treasured album).

How do you handle the abundance of digital photos on your camera/phone? Do you ever print or organize them?
What is community worth to you?

I can't keep up with all the pictures, but I do try to make special occasion scrapbooks and albums, like a recent trip my family took to Germany.

Sophie thanks for reading and commenting! That's great that you make special occasion scrapbooks and albums. I bet your family treasures them. Do you use a computer program or paper and glue? We do both at my house.
