5 Reasons Why A Photo Book Is The Perfect Choice For Family Pictures

There’s nothing better than sitting down with your loved ones and going through the book of pictures like the one from Mixbook that brings so many beautiful memories.

Here are some of the reasons why a photo book is the perfect choice for family pictures.


1. Great For Our Children

There is a well-known study called  Phototherapy in Mental Health authored by David A. Krauss and Jerry L. Fryrear.  Within the pages of it, David Krauss, a licensed psychologist, says β€œI think it is really important to show a family as a family unit. It is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit. A photographer’s job is to create and make the image look like a safe holding space for kids where they are safe and protected. Kids get it on a really simple level.”

There’s nothing more that needs to be added here.

2. Great Decor Piece

A beautiful book is something that we often put as a decor in our living room. On a coffee table or a book shelf, it is also easy to reach out for. Mixbook offers many variations of a photo book. My favorite is their premium matte lay flat (the one you can see in the pictures). It is made with ultra-thick paper with a luxe, low-glare matte. It is not only a meaningful piece that you can display, but also it is beautifully made and we all love make our homes beautiful.

3. A Photo Book Is Tangible

I don’t know about you, but I love something that I can feel and touch. The experience in this case is more complex and complete. Rather than looking at pictures on the phone or laptop, it is better to open the book and reminisce together with your loved ones. On top of that, how often do we look through our old images on the computer… yeah, not so often.

4. Everything May Fail, But Book Won’t

Let me share my own experience when a couple of years ago, my laptop stopped working. Just like that, with no signs. I had A LOT of pictures saved on there and I went to the computer technician with hopes that I will get them back. Unfortunately, I lost them all. That’s why now ordering a photo book was a perfect idea when it comes to the pregnancy journey and a birth of my child. I would not ever forgive myself if I lost them. Computers die and hard drives fail, prevent this while you can.

5. A Photo Book Is Timeless And Lasting

A book is something that will last decades from now. It will be a part of your family’s historical record and it can be passed down in your family for generations.

There will be no surprise if I say that I choose photo books over albums, digital copies and anything else! πŸ™‚
