It gives you everything you need to make a photo book.

All you have to do is find your photos using the prompts, place them into the pre-designed custom layouts, review and print!

Photo Prompts

If you have plenty of photos but always get stuck selecting which ones to use….you’ll love my photo prompts. I tell you exactly what photos to look for and how to efficiently find them your library.

Drag & Drop Custom Layouts

I’ve prepared custom-designed layouts that fit the photo prompts. My layouts include photo boxes that are the right proportion for your photos. Plus, I’ve taken the time to center them to create a unified look throughout the book.

Print Ready

With photo prompts and custom layouts suited to your photos, everything is ready for you to place photos, preview and print. You’ll have a clear strategy to produce a beautiful photo book, quickly.

Printing your photos matter.

It matters for the exact same reason you pick up your camera. To document your everyday. To capture your life. To define your family at this very moment. Years from now, you’ll be able to sit down and flip through your photo book and remember what life was like. You’ll remember the mismatched outfits, the bedhead hair, the way your kids played make-believe, and the bedtime routine.

The Book This Project Starter Kit is perfect for the busy mom who loves to take photos of meaningful moments yet never knows where to start when it comes to putting those photos in a stylish, unique photo book.
