My easy solution is photo books! Rather than having piles of prints, I’ve been making a small photo book for any major event or trip I’ve gone on. I’ve also been making photo books to recap each year and I’m so happy I’ve decided to do this! They are easy to flip through, have a professional look and are actually quite affordable!
