Holiday Photo Contest

We have family living in several different states. With today’s technology we (my family) is able to share our daily life, trips, and memorable moments online with digital photography.  But there are some members of our family who do not use Facebook nor read my blog.  My mom loves when I get photographs printed out and/or framed for her.

Now that the Holidays are coming up fast, I’m starting to look for great memorable Christmas gifts. Using all of these photographs that I’ve taken all year would be a fantastic gift for my family. You know, rather than the photos sitting in a folder on my computer {seriously, you know that you do the same thing}.

I recently heard about a great company, through my friends from 5 Minutes for Mom. helps you self publish photobooks through their website.

About Lulu:
