Capturing memories

One of my resolutions this year is to take more photos and by that I don't mean blog related photos, though I do need to get back into the swing of outfit posts! What I really want to do is capture more photographs of special occasions with my family and friends. Though I know it is important to enjoy the events without looking through the lens of the camera, I just want to make sure I have photos to look back on in a few years time.

I thought I would start the year off by creating a new photo album full of images from last year. I decided to have them printed at Photobox after seeing that new sign ups got 40 free prints and an entry into the competition to win a Canon IXUS camera. The process of uploading the images to be printed couldn't have been simpler. You had the option to either upload them straight from your computer or from your social media pages.




Once you had chosen your images, Photobox gave you an idea of the quality to expect. Some of the images I uploaded from my Facebook were not the highest quality but they still turned out absolutely fine! As I said before, the images were completely free, you just had to cover the £2.99 postage which I think is very reasonable.

The photos came so quickly and I was really impressed with both the quality of the prints and the fantastic service. If you have some Christmas and New Year photos that you want to print out to put into photo albums, I highly recommend using Photobox. You can sign up for an account here!*

  1. This is a really great idea, and I've been bought so many picture frames to fill this Christmas! I need to take more photos too, not just for the blog but just to remember life's little moments by. Xx

  2. I made a few photo books with photo box last year as gifts, and I thought it was a really lovely idea! I'm like you though, I'm constantly berating myself for forgetting to take pictures when I'm out! Definitely something to work on this year =) xx

  4. I use Photobox already and they're so good aren't they! I recently bought another 500 prints in the 70% off sale. They have the best prices and quality that I've found, so I always go back to them. I love taking photos, but we're in a day and age where printing them off is less heard of. Flicking through photo albums and reminiscing is something I miss when I don't have them printed out, so it's lovely to have the photo in a physical form :) xxx
