Mother’s Day Gift Idea | Custom Photo Book


We received our wedding book, and I am so excited.  I am so pleased with it!!  Here are some of the details.

All wedding photos were taken by the wonderful Stephanie Davis.  She captured all of our wedding day memories with such ease.

Melissa from Gray Star Design put together our wedding book.  I highly recommend her if you are looking for a way to showcase wedding day photos or any other special event.  I found her Etsy shop and then was directed to her website which offers many different ways to customize your book.  My parents and I both got the 10×10 size, mine with a linen cover and theirs with a photo cover.  They are both stunning.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I wanted to share what I think would be a wonderful gift idea for moms.  A DIY photo book is a thoughtful present that any mom would cherish.  There are many, great sites that allow you to use your own photos to create a beautiful book.  Here are some of my favorite sources:

My Publisher

My Publisher has several great deals happening now.  They offer new customers a free copy of their first book as well as site-wide sale with 20 – 75% off books through May 5th.  They also offer many great cover and paper options.

Artifact Uprising

Artifact Uprising has more than just photo books!  Aside from their hard and softcover books, they offer products like wooden boxes, wood calendars, wood blocks + prints, postcard packs and square print sets that are totally customizable.  


Blurb offers several book sizes, cover styles and 1000s of layouts, and they even guarantee that your book will arrive in 7-10 days.


Shutterfly offers a “simple” path and a “custom” path.  With the simple path you upload your photos, and they are arranged for you.  How easy is that?  The custom path allows you to add, move and resize pictures and text anywhere.  As an added bonus they offer free shipping!
