5 Special Moments That Need To Be Captured In Custom Photo Albums

What could you do with a custom photo album? You could put together a collection of photos from the last cruise you went on, assemble a 25-year wedding anniversary album for your mom and dad, create the perfect graduation gift for your scholar, give a one-of-a-kind baby shower gift… You're only limited by your imagination. Best of all, it's quick and easy to make custom photo albums today online.

There are so many moments in life worth recording in a photo. So how do you choose which are the most important or monumental? It all depends on the theme of the photo album you're going to create, which moments and photos you use.

Here, we'll look at five milestones in life perfect for your custom photo album and beautifully showcase the subject (or subjects) of your theme.

Bat Mitzvah Or Bar Mitzvah

To grace a premium photo album's cover, one perfect milestone is that of a child's bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah. On the front or back cover, you can beautifully showcase this ceremony with its rich traditions. Choose a template with clean lines and bold colors to complement your pictures. This will become a treasured keepsake for the family.


People should document every anniversary, not just the first, 25th, and 50th. With a photo album, a couple's commitment to life and love can be beautifully depicted. Naturally, the front cover will consist of the wedding picture. From generation to generation, this book can be passed down.

Art Portfolio

Do you consider yourself an artist? Do you have a friend who has a definite talent in the area of art? Put together a showcase of sorts and show off their best works with a photo album. You may have a hard time picking just the right picture for the cover, so give it some serious thought. You might even want to put a picture of the artist on the front and photos of all the artwork inside.

Baby's First Year

Starting with the first 48 hours of life, there are countless milestones and changes throughout the first year of a baby's life. This photo album in particular can end with a picture of the child enjoying their very first birthday cake (celebrating one year).


This comes as no surprise. Wedding albums are the perfect occasion around which to build a photo album. You may decide to preface the wedding photos with a picture of the moment of engagement, if there is one. The rehearsal dinner is another pre-wedding shot you may wish to include.
