Scrapbook photos are used to tell a story. Your scrapbook page layouts tell your story. Photographs are an important part of the storytelling process. Selecting the right photos for your pages is essential to your narrative.
Many photos that are included in scrapbooks are posed pictures. They are either professional pictures from school years, weddings, anniversaries or they are pictures at events and locations where you posed in front of something for the photograph. “Candid” shots are much more inviting. The pictures where the person is not expecting to be photographed tend to tell a more interesting story.
So use these unplanned photos along with the posed pictures to create a fabulous tale of your life. Don't forget to create a valid focal point so you portray the right story ideas.
