I don’t have updated ones, but I have 4 from my early twenties that I absolutely love. 🙂

I also have one from my prom…..hidden away somewhere because it wasn’t a good night and my awful ex is in so many of them (see: why it wasn’t a good night, haha).

My parents have kept so many albums from the 70s/80s that it’s wonderful….but no, I do not have any current physical albums!

I used to ALWAYS print my pictures and put them in an album. Now they are saved on my computer. It will be a sad sad day if my computer crashes! I should probably back them all up. I think I just got lazy with printing them which is unfortunate.

I have started doing the photobooks through MyPublisher.com  – it’s amazing. Did one for our honeymoon, wedding and actual did a “yearbook” of sorts for 2010 and 2011.

Each time we took pictures i would dump them onto my computer and have them in files “Jan 2011” or  “Feb 2011” and then created a yearbook type thing on MyPublisher. It was easy enough to work on month to month (or do it a couple times a year) and then finish and order after new years. I much prefer it to printing out ALL the pictures we take and it’s much cheaper! 🙂

Yes! They are so much more fun to look through than digital pictures.

I’m a huge advocate of photobooks. I love technology and I have lots of pictures that never make it to print, but I don’t trust that a) my computer will never crash or b) it will  never become outdated. I’m trying to make a photobook of each year so that if either of those events occur I will still have record of the most special moments.

For a while when I started using digital, I’d still print up all the pics like I used to with film cause I was paranoid that I’d lose them.  Eventually I stopped b/c I was taking SOOOOOO many more pictures.  I do a vacation photobook for every vacation – even scanned in all my old film and made photobook with that.  And I want to start doing a yearly recap book too.  I also back up my pictures up on 3 separate hard drives since harddrives are so cheap now.

Yes…Everything is on Facebook/myspace for friends and family and easy categorizing…but the favs are in regular photo albums!

i have no digital albums–everything is “old school”

i have albums organized by every grade in high school, an album each for our engagement photos, wedding photos, and family photos. all other random photos are put into albums organized by year.

i love albums becuase guests always pull them out when they come over!
