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.
Handmade from the highest quality materials and fully customizable to your liking, I’ll craft and bind your favorite photos into a beautiful book. We’ll work together to weave a story and create a design that you’re absolutely in love with. Simply select your “must have” images during our ordering session, and I’ll get the ball rolling. I promise you’ll be flipping through this book for years down the road, reliving your adventures with your dog all over again.
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).
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?)
Personalize the cover just how you would like! I custom design each cover. My favorite debossing color? I’m in love with the Rose Gold.
Final Story Book
You will receive your album in a beautiful keepsake box shown below.
1. How Many Pages?
My smallest album is an 8×8 with 16 images. The next size is a 10×10/9×12 with 25 images. You can have additional images added on.
2. How Many Photos?
I typically share 30-35 images from a photo session that is for 1 dog and their pawrents. Additional dogs I show more images. You are welcome to include all of the images from our session in your Story Book. You only choose and purchase what you love!
3. Will I See A Draft Before Print?
Please trust my design! I enjoy designing albums and work hard to showcase your images in the best possible ways, through design and cropping. I promise you will love it!
4. How Do I Care For My Album?
Your album will come with a detailed care instruction card to help you ensure its longevity.
It is best if you;
– keep your album out of direct sunlight
– store your album in a non-humid, cool, temperate place
– store your album flat

I am currently editing 28 images for an album. I love creating albums and yours are gorgeous!
I love albums too! These are amazing.
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).
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.
I love albums and books, and your Story Book looks beautiful. What a wonderful way to remember all the happy memories!
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.
I don’t think I can say it better than you said in this blog post and Daisy said in the comments. PRINT!
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!
Your albums are beautiful, and love that you personalize the covers!
