Even with the introduction of the digital age, there's still nothing that captures those special 'tying-the-knot moments as splendidly as wedding albums.
On the matter of school photos; on the day, I make sure the kids’ collars are straightened, their hair brushed neatly, and uniforms in tip top shape.
When I get the proofs back something is invariably out of place. My youngest has the most flyaway hair that's ever graced the head of a little girl. A feature that’s always very noticeable in our photo books. We’ve decorated our walls and albums with school pictures of the kids, many of which I’m not totally crazy about.
My son, at 10 years old, is in year 6, which is his last year in Primary school. I suppose this means that I have to buy his school pictures this term. I’ve sent back the proofs with the cheque and await yet another school photograph to add to the wheelbarrow of pictures we carry from place to place when we move house (which we're doing soon).
Are you one for keeping real pictures in albums like we do, or are you one of the new-age babies who store all your pictures digital-style? Have you still got your wedding photo album nestled neatly in your safest draws or have you stored them on the digital camera with grand plans to have them printed one day?
