Favorite Photo Slideshows

Favorite Photo Slideshows

I mentioned yesterday that I have never printed my favorite family photos. I can hear the gasps of horror as the scrapbooking community reads this. Before you make me turn in my scrapbooker card (the cooler version of a man card, ha!) let me explain.

We live in a wonderful world filled with technology. My children, and probably yours, are amazingly technically savvy. It is fascinating to watch Eden (even from the age of one) quickly and easily navigate my iPhone and iPad. One of her favorite things to do is watch the slideshows I create, especially our yearly favorites slideshows. The slideshows along with our home movies are loaded on our media center computer, iPhones and iPads. We are never without our photos. My phone is always in my back pocket, which means so are 100’s of photos and slideshows.

Living with Your Photos - Favorite Slideshows

I create my slideshows in iPhoto. I did a quick Google search and found this tutorial on how to make one yourself, if you so desire. I love slideshows. Would you like to see one? Here is the “2011 Favorites” slideshow I created in January.


I started making slideshows in 2009, meaning the first four years of Zoë’s life are slideshow-less. That simply will not do! This month I am trying to get caught up. It has been so much fun seeing the older photos that have long since been scrapbooked, but rarely looked at. (I used to stay fairly caught up when I only had one child. I’m sure you can sympathize.) So far this month I have also created a “2006 Favorites” and am hoping to finish 2005, 2007, and 2008.

Here is a list of my favorite slideshow music. I am always on the lookout for great new songs. If you have one/some, please share in the comments section!
