a day in little lila’s shoes

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

lilacover Oh, to be two again. When the quite talented Rachel McGinn approached me to make a photo storybook about her family, I was thrilled. (Just take a look at some of her photos and you’ll see why.)

Together, Rachel and I came up with this simple book concept to capture a day in the life of her darling two year old, Lila. I love this little book, not to mention the carefree life of a 2 year old!

(a note about the book details: this is a 25 page, 7×7 photo storybook, with board pages and ribbon binding on the spine)

Rachel “interviewed” Lila and we used some of the quotes in the layout. Here she says her best friend is big sister “yaya.” Pretty darn cute.

Some spreads are full photos like these two – jumping on the bed and blowing bubbles.

Now, don’t you want to be two again?
