8 Types of Photos Perfect for Your Family Yearbook
An annual family yearbook allows you to recap some of your family’s favorite moments and memories in the past one year. Are you wondering which photos to include in your family yearbook? The great thing about a photo book is that it can be about anything. Every year is filled with different activities and milestones that you mark and celebrate with your loved ones. Below are eight types of photos you can incorporate into your family yearbook.
If one or several family members graduated, you could include some of their favorite photos in the yearbook. Include the ceremony as well as graduation celebration photos with friends, teachers, or family members.
Everyday Moments with Your Kids Pictures
Every moment spent with our children is precious. Remember, not only picture-perfect moments should find their way into your family yearbook. Sometimes the tantrums, the silly faces, the messy hair, and the photobombs will end up being your favorites. These can be a unique gift for college students to take with them on their new journey away from home.
Family Vacation Shots
Whether it’s a fun staycation, weekend getaway, or a trip to an exotic destination, family vacations are always filled with timeless memories. Preserve your children’s memories by adding them to your family yearbook.
Individual Accomplishments Photos
Family yearbooks offer an excellent opportunity to highlight what each family member accomplished that year. Maybe your baby took her first step or your child lost a tooth or even started driving; all of these milestones deserve a spot in the yearbook.
Mother’s Day or Father’s Day Photos
Parenthood is a beautiful commitment to be honored and celebrated. Maybe your kids or spouse planned a surprise for you during Father’s or Mother’s Day. Maybe you even planned something special for yourself. It’s very likely you have photos on your phone that you took on this special occasion. These can be a great addition to your annual family yearbook.
First Day of School Pictures

Birthday and Anniversary Photos
Are you celebrating your child’s birthday or your wedding anniversary soon? Maybe it has already passed. These yearly milestones mark the start of a new chapter in our lives. Add fun photos of your children’s birthday parties and your anniversary celebrations.
