Answer This

I’m stealing the “Answer This” thing from Sharlee. I will only steal it momentarily though:)

This weekend we finished cleaning out the remainder of my mother’s house and garage. Currently I have a huge, and I mean HUGE box (HUGE!) of photo albums just sitting on my living room floor. (Did I mention Ken’s mom and step-dad will be here Wednesday? Which means that I have to find a home for them, and ASAP. Most likely they will be going under our beds for now. Note the OUR-that means Ken and I’s, Fenix’s, and possibly Grace’s crib.) It got me to thinking about how we never print pictures at our house unless we are putting them in a frame. Because we have a digital camera and upload our pictures to our Picasa website, we never really print them. I definitely don’t want Grace to have to someday deal with double the amount of photo albums that I am dealing with now. (I really don’t mind. I want them. I’m happy to have them. I just don’t know where to put them, and I suddenly feel like our house is too small.) But at the same time, I feel like I should be printing our photos in some capacity.

So, here’s my question:

What do you do with your digital photos? Do you have a method? Photo album? Scrap book? Do you limit what you print or do you just store them online?

I really, sincerely want to know, so I’d love to hear from you.

Oh yeah, and while we are on the topic of photos, I thought I’d share a few more of Grace:)

  1. Good luck on this. My answer this posts get very little response 🙂 I hope you do, though. I will tell you that you can make photo books online (they cost a lot) but that way they're all in one place and they're visible (obviously not all of them) and you still have digital copies. I am also planning on printing off my blog (they have websites that do that, too) so that you have photos somewhere other than online. I don't do anything, I'm a lot like you. So I'm just putting in the two cents of things that I would like to do.

  2. I was really good about printing photos of Natalia her first year and I have two albums I put together of those photos, and then I slacked. It's too overwhelming to print and the put together photo albums or scrapbooks of everything. I'm a little too camera happy so I have probably thousands of pictures that could be printed. UGH! So for now they remain online after uploading them off the camera. Maybe some day I'll go back through and print them but for now I just print a few of my favorites for frames around the house and it'll stay that way… especially now that we are just going to get busier. Sometimes you can get codes to print the photo books for a fraction of the normal cost, and I've done that a couple of times but it's also very time consuming to be on the internet long enough to put it together. I think now a days though because of digital cameras it's just common practice to not print them until you need them. Unlike when we were younger and you had to develop a roll of film and have prints of everything.
