Your Dog's Story Book

Happiness Is Your Dog’s Story Book

I love a book. Tangible Memories. Colorful. Sturdy. Personalized. A book tells the story of the adventure with your dog experienced on the day of their photo session. Maybe it’s leaping for snowballs the day after a Nor’Easter, while you traipse through the snow in your Tubbs Snowshoes (my dream photo session that would make ME happy!). Or watching your pooch paddle the water at your favorite local lake at dusk.

Do you love ALL of the images from your photo session? Do you want to remember your dog’s story over the years? If that is the case, I highly recommend my signature Story Book.

Awakening your sentimental memories with each and every page turn.

The Covers

I have a variety of cover styles to choose from. If you are looking for something truly “unique”, the Messenger style is perfect! It also has a rustic feel which goes great with trail hike dog photography session. Shown are the different styles. I do a lot of “full wrap” styles, which is my favorite, with a quote “debossed” (see a few paragraphs below).

The Colors

One of my favorite parts of the design process is choosing the color. I LOVE color! The Book Cloths are my most popular, especially the ones that are “coated”. Dog drool and dog hair everywhere? It just wipes clean! My most popular colors are the Mint Chip, Cranberry Cocktail, and Razzleberry Sprinkles. The “sprinkles” have a fun shimmer to them. (Don’t you just love the names?)

  1. Wow – what a wonderful idea to get people to purchase a book with all their favorite photos – get those photos in print – people don’t realize how much this world is digital until they don’t have access to it (ie no power or no internet).

  2. Oh! Albums are my favorite. And I hadn’t read that AA Milne quote before – I think it’s one of my favorites now! Perfect.

  3. Great explanation on what choices you have in the design of the photo album you want. Print!! Print!! Print!! those “Photos”. You will see a whole new image in print that shows true color & meaning then keeping those images stored in cloud or whatever you use to keep digital images. “Remember” printing your photos gives you a lifetime of tangible memories you will always have.

  4. I love all the options for the albums and that first image is magical. Such a great idea to have a book that holds your dog’s story, something tangible to always remember everything about them. Absolutely gorgeous work Darlene!
