I know we all take digital pictures and everyone has their favorite spot to get them developed, but I wanted to let you know where I go... Shutterfly. In fact, I just used them in September to do my son's Senior pictures. Instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a photo studio, I took some outdoor shots of my son, then went to Shutterfly, added some graphics(the ones I had printed said "Class of 2011" in the corner), and spent a grand total of $24.95!!! I did several different poses and printed off enough for family, his friends, and the yearbook staff. It was super easy and I saved a ton of money. Here is one of the photos we used...This year, I plan on using Shutterfly for 3 photo books of my blogs(this one, my family blog, and Mason's first year blog). Since I'm not a scrapbooker, this will be a great new way to do family albums, and the work of pics and writing is already done, and Shutterfly takes care of the rest. I also plan on using them for my Christmas cards. The hardest part will be deciding on which cute card to choose from and then getting a good picture of the kids. I think I'm leaning towards the design above, but there are just so many great looking ones. Oh, and I almost forgot, you can do hang tags too, will have to add these to my list.
