Collecting Memories With A Mixbook Photo Album

 
Caila Quinn the Bachelor Mixbook Photo Album with Boyfriend Nick

Ever since Nick and I started dating, I vowed to make a photo album after all of our big trips to document our memories. Two years and three photo albums later, I’m so happy I’ve been keeping this tradition alive! Looking back on our pictures is one of my favorite things to do. Whether in need of a pick-me-up after a long day, missing Nick while he’s away on business, or just feeling sentimental, these Mixbook albums never fail to make me smile.

I’m so excited to share our photo album from our recent Asia trip. Making the album was so much fun — I love designing each page and making each inch of the book special. Next time you’re making yours, remember these…

3 TIPS TO MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE AN ALBUM-MAKING PRO

  1. WRITE THE YEAR AND LOCATION ON THE SPINE OF THE BOOK

    • This reminder may sound silly, but it’s a step I have forgotten more than once! Having a title on the spine is a little detail that takes the design of your book to the next level. Not to mention, it makes it easier to quickly find that particular album when you want to relive seeing the Great Pyramids of Giza or the Taj Mahal.

  2. Mix in candid pics FROM YOUR PHONE

    • If you remember from my last Mixbook blog post, I love having the last page of the album reserved for silly blooper pics. These make the albums so much more personal and fun to look through, reminding you of those funny stories for years to come. Like when Nick captured the moment in China when a cow swung his tail in my face as I tried (and failed) to take a selfie with it 🙈. While I love looking back at pictures of the beautiful temples and scenery, this photo of me screaming and looking as if i’d seen a ghost is my fave.

  3. Change up the photo layouts

    • Create visual interest by making sure each page isn’t the exact same layout. Be thoughtful with your image placement and how it shows your story. For example, make your favorite photos large focal pieces that take up an entire page and balance this with smaller pictures from the same day on the adjacent page. One of my absolute favorite pics Nick and I have ever taken is one of us kissing while wearing kimonos and experiencing a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. In our album, this picture takes up its own page and is accompanied by close up photos of the beautiful kimonos and scenery.

I know you probably want to get this album done quickly so you can show off your amazing photos and trip to your family and friends. Once you do a few pages, you’ll find your rhythm and have your Mixbook in no time! In an age where everything is digital, it feels so nice to have these pictures printed and being able to flip through them with your own two hands. I can’t wait to see Nick’s face when I show him our latest album!
