As hard as it can be to say goodbye to summer, it’s always a bit of a relief to be able to turn inward once the air turns crisp and the leaves go orange. Not only do I give myself permission to stay indoors for a change, I tend to have the sudden urge to make soup, bake bread, and pull my family a little closer.
It’s not by accident that the upcoming holidays are all about celebrating family. So channel the craving for connection with loved ones into creating a book that everyone will cherish. Mixbook has four new book themes that are perfect for capturing the beauty of autumn and beyond. A new photo book will reinforce those deep feelings of connection, filling kids with pride of family and making adults stop in awe to reflect on all they have. And making copies of your photo books for family members and close friends near and far is a heart-warming gift everyone will love – whether the occasion is Thanksgiving, Christmas or just because.
Have An Adventure Choose Shades of Autumn, Natural Textures or Rustic Family Album to showcase all the fun you share over the next few weeks. You can even take a few planned adventures to maximize your enjoyment of fall. Head to a harvest festival or go pumpkin picking, and take a hike to view (and stomp on) beautiful leaves.
Dress the Part Pull on boots, cozy sweaters, colorful hats and sip steaming hot mulled cider for a fun autumn photo shoot in a field of dried grasses or with a backdrop of vibrant trees. Shoot lots of photographs so you can play around with a series to evoke movement and energy in your photo book compositions.
Fill Out the Year If your autumnally inspired urge to gather photos compels you to go further with collecting pictures from the entire year – go with it! Mixbook’s Seasons of Love photo book provides a layout that’s perfect for including highlights from every season – including fall! You can create 90% of the book now, then go in and add photos of Halloween, Thanksgiving and early Christmas parties – ordering mid-December for the perfect holiday gift for every loved one.
