The ALBUM – Holiday Gift For Grownups

December 21, 2009

Taking digital pictures is something that most of us do year-round, but even more so at the holidays. However, if your family is like mine, many of the people you want to share the holiday candids with are not online. I’m terrible at remembering to get prints made, and pictures lose something when you are […]
