I’m making a photobook of June’s First Year. Would you like a peek?

I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out. I decided to go with a cloth, hardbound cover in brown linen and I’m keeping the backgrounds plain and white — which maybe is boring, but totally appeals to the graphic designer part of me. Simple, clean, lots of white space.

The trickiest part is definitely deciding which photos to use! I’m planning to show photos from birth through her first birthday party. I want to make sure I include a few shots of all the kids together. And a few photos of just June + Dad and June + Mom. Do you think I should include a photo of me in labor? Is that weird?

Have you ever made a photo book before? What would you include in a photo record of your baby’s first year?
