Parent Albums

I know many of you are making your own parent albums through shutterfly, blurb, etc. rather than ordering them from your photographer and I was wondering what kind of shots are you putting in there? I want to make one for DH's parents and for my parents for Christmas. I am pretty sure that my parents will want any picture that I put in there (i.e. me getting ready, all the detail shots, etc.) because they helped me plan and pay for everything. I am not sure what to do about DH's parents book. Would you put all the details and everything in there or mostly just pics with him in them. PS-they don't like me very much and are SO the type of people to be like "thats what you gave us for Christmas..."

Re: Parent Albums

  • I am putting a lot of the same "general" pictures in DH's parent's book - portraits, pics of the ceremony, etc. but I will put in more of their friends/relatives from the reception photos and other crowd/group shots. I did the same for my parents - I didn't put too much of DH's extended family in there, but put our extended family, my parent's friends, etc.

  • I used Picaboo for our epics book and throug them got a buy one get one free coupon for november so my mom and Hs parents are getting the same book. I'm trying to keep it pretty general, but it will include people from both sides of the family.

  • They're all getting the same albums. I get a 20 page album from my photographer and our parents/grandparents will get a 78 page album from me. It includes all types of shots.
