As a parent, you probably take TONS of photos of your family...I know I do! Whether it be during a family reunion, a holiday, or even during your children's sporting events, one thing is for sure: We moms have a LOT of pictures! In today's mostly digital age, most photo sharing is done via e-mail, on social media sites like Facebook or Photobucket, or through other online options. It seems that physical photo albums are taking a backseat to online photo sharing. This is extremely convenient for most, since even my and my hubby's grandparents are on Facebook, but it doesn't provide something tangible to pass down to my children. Well...Unless I wanted to hand them some memory cards or a thumb drive! But that's not very sentimental, is it? So I am a HUGE fan of photo books. There are many, many companies offering these online, and I have a few of them. These photo books are wonderful ways to transform your digital media into something that you can sit with a child in your lap and look at together, as a family.
I would like to tell you all about a NEW and unique innovation in photo books. This awesome new concept is called Group Story. Why is this different than your typical photo book? Simple: Group Story offers you an outlet to create an interactive project with family and friends. This is a social photo book! Once you sign in to Group Story, you have the opportunity to send e-mail invited to as many family members and friends as you'd like. They can then log in to your project page and upload THEIR photos to tell their story as well! Perhaps you have a family full of shutterbugs....My husband has a cousin who is a fabulous photographer and has a camera that's probably worth more than my entire wardrobe. She takes AMAZING pictures at family events. So during a family event, there may be 4 or 5 different people with cameras, all capturing different memories. With Group Story, you are able to bring all of these memories together, shared, in one convenient place. How awesome is that?! Everyone can contribute their piece of the puzzle to create one collaborative story!

See? Creating a collaborative album with Group Story is easy as pie! I received a photo book from Group Story, and I couldn't be more pleased. The whole process was simple, and I loved the customization available for these books. They have several different page layouts you can choose from, including single and multiple photos to a page, and you can even add text and different colored backgrounds to make your photo book uniquely YOU. Here are some photos from MY Group Story! My vision was to create a book with photos of my children and family that I could pass down to them and they could share it with their children....about 5 million years from now....after I am long gone, when they're finally allowed to date and marry!
This book is very high-quality and is a perfect way to chronicle your family memories. My camera doesn't do the crispness of the images justice! Group Story offers photo books in either hard or soft cover options, and all for a very reasonable price. These books are great for teams, get-togethers, 50th anniversaries, or any other occasion spent with the ones you love, and the best part: Every picture tells a story, and now everyone has a chance to share their own in this unique, collaborative effort. I love Group Story, and plan to order more of these books as my children grow.
