project life | extra photos

Last week, I wrote about how I got started with Project Life. The idea is that in lieu of a baby book, I'm documenting a week in the {first year of Ben's} life. However, sometimes it's necessary to deviate from the format. This week, I'm sharing a layout I did using a bunch of extra photos I had from the day Ben was born. Ben arrived at 5:51 am, so we had a full first day with him. My husband and my sister each shot hundreds of beautiful photos, so it was hard to limit myself to ONE from that day to include in his album. So I didn't! I created a two-page layout of just photos from that day. There are many more, so I'll probably do a digital photobook at some point. But for now, this is what we have.

Here's the full two-page spread.

On the left side, I included pictures of the few minutes after Ben was born, when just Nick and I were with him. Nick had set up a tripod, which is how we got the shot on the lower-right. He's holding the remote.

The journaling card documents the content of this page.

The photos on the right side page include shots of all of Ben's visitors that day.

Here he is nestled next to his future cousin, Baby vR.

This week, a whole slew of new Project Life products are now for sale on Amazon. Next week, I'll share how I print directly on the journaling cards. Happy documenting!
