The holiday season may be over – but you’ll cherish the memories for years to come. If you thought to have a camera handy during Christmas day and the events leading up to it, you likely have an abundance of beautiful shots.
Now the question becomes, what is the best way to make those moments last? Here are a few Costco Photo Center tips to help you make those merry and bright memories live on forever.
A Contemporary Album
Nope – we’re not talking about sharing a few pictures on social media. Capturing all of your holiday memories in a photo book is a sophisticated, modern twist on the classic photo album. Cutting down the tree, hanging the decorations, baking the cookies and – finally – opening presents on Christmas Day. By ordering your photos chronologically in the book, you’re able to tell your story from beginning to end.
Don’t forget to add personal captions throughout so that you never forget the little details. When you’re done, the photo book will be a polished keepsake that you can share with generations to come.
Take a photo that you absolutely love? Enjoy it all through the year by turning it into a piece of home décor. Take that cheerful photo from Christmas dinner where the entire family is together and turn it into a sophisticated canvas print to display at home. Did someone capture a beautiful photo of you with your child or significant other on Christmas morning? Turn it into a metal print to make the memory shine all year.
Get a Head Start
Christmas cards look the best when the whole family is festive, but it can be difficult to get everyone together and dressed up for the photo early in the season to order your cards on time. Browse through the holiday photos that you took in 2016 and set aside your favorites now, before they get lost in the digital shuffle. Want to cross one thing off your list early? You can even design and order your cards now to make the holiday season smoother next year!
