Here’s a nice idea for an annual family tradition (especially if you’re a parent with young kids): take your family photos from the past year, create a year-in-review photo book, and then record some video of your family looking at the book and talking about it.
That’s what photographer Tim Kyle started doing this year with his two young daughters. The video above shows the three of them looking over their 2014 family photos “with expert commentary.”
You can find the photo book’s images right-side-up over on Kyle’s website.
Kyle says the photo book is a 50-page leather layflat book he ordered from White House Custom Color. It’s a 10×10 book that cost around $280. Other services you could use include Mixbook, Montage, Shutterfly, and Snapfish.
This annual tradition will give you a nice video every year that can be viewed in the future alongside the actual photo book — it’s like a director’s audio/video commentary for your yearly memories.
