This Is What The Future Holds.

There was a great discussion recently about how the current generation of people have never before in history been more photographed. Everyone has a camera on them pretty much all the time, whether it's your camera phone, your point and shoot, or your ten pound monster slr camera (um...that would be me), there's almost never a time when you don't have access to a camera, which is a great thing! But what's interesting is that despite all these billions of images, this generation has so little to show for it. All those shots are locked up on little memory cards or at the back of hard drives that could crash any time. It's said that 99% of these images will stay in digital form forever. Not such a great thing.

Sitting at my Grandparents house, I used to love looking through all the old photos and albums. My family history was right there in front of me, in the photo albums and on the walls, proudly displayed. I'm so looking forward to showing our son Casey these family heirlooms along with our own family story. I wonder though, when Casey grows up and has a family someday, will he be able to do the same? I hope so. Beth and I have made it a huge priority for our family and the couples that we work with to create new family heirlooms that will last for generations. This incredible album from Leather Craftsmen is a great example of that.

This photo puts a smile on my face EVERY time! This album is so perfect.

On this inside front and back covers it's lined with stunning "Teal Cork" and the Ryan + Beth stamp of approval.

These albums have a lifetime craftsmanship guarantee.

Being two years old...right now Casey is just happy with the bubble wrap :-)

Here's the specs for the album: 12"x12", 66 pages, "Thin White Pages", covered with Marine Japanese Book Cloth, Teal Cork end sheets, a 4"x6" inset cover photo, and black "Modern" imprinting on the cover and spine. Whew! Leather Craftsmen was so great through the entire ordering process and we can't thank them enough for all their hard work and attention to detail.

If you'd like to see this or any other of our albums just let us know, we'd love to show you!
