You may remember that in May I had a maternity shoot with the fabulous Tara Whitney. Then, in July, after Paul was officially home from deployment we did a family shoot at the house. I have printed and framed a few of the photos from that shoot (hopefully more to come). But I really wanted a photo book of my favorite images and decided to go through Pinhole Press after seeing the beautiful wedding album a girlfriend of mine had made.
I loved that there was a panoramic option so I could get huge seemless photo spreads. I used their online system and uploaded all my photos (it was quick and painless even though the files were huge) and choose from their various layouts to fit my needs.
For the most part, the beginning of the book is the materinity shoot and the end is the family shoot, but I decided to mix the maternity photos in with the baby photos wherever it made sense.
Like these two from a similar angle.
And then with these three with the repeating theme of her baby quilt.
The book I made had room for 60 pages. Because I really wanted to print some huge (taking up a full spread), I was selective about what went in. There are some layout options that fit more photos - (I want to say 6 or 8?) - but for this book I only used the spreads that fit three.
The spine and the backing are bookcloth (you can choose various colors) and the total size is 8.75 x 8.75 inches.
I am SO thrilled with the quality. The paper stock and printing are beautiful and those panorama pages are so fun. I am also so glad that these photos are off my harddrive and into something that can be looked through. I predict there will be much more bookmaking through Pinhole Press in my future.
