Okay, guys confession time: I take too many photos. But, if you follow me on instagram, snapchat, or my blog – you already know that. When Gracie was born, we invested in a new camera (Sony A6000) and it started to become a little hobby of mine to learn how to use it! About a million photos later, I feel like I’m getting the hang of it. I seriously practice taking photos every day. I just love being able to capture each moment with Gracie with high quality shots. It’s so much fun!
I take so many photos with my Sony A6000, then transfer them to my phone (with the built in camera wi-fi!!!!). I love having them on my phone because I can easily share to instagram or Facebook. But… I’ve run into a little problem. My phone keeps running out of storage because of my picture-overload situation. But, I think I’ve found the solution! You guys, I can’t wait to tell you about this company- Groovebook.
Some of you may have heard of Groovebook because they were on Shark Tank in January of 2014. This couple created an app that solves all of my picture problems! It’s so easy. You download the app. Then you upload 40-100 photos from your phone. Of course I fill up the 100 easily, but it’s nice to know you only need a minimum of 40. Then Groovebook takes your photos and puts them in an adorable photo book for FREE. All you have to pay is $2.99 for shipping. Three dollars for 100 photos printed out! It’s amazing!
The app is really easy to use. It’s as simple as selecting the photos you want and hitting upload. Honestly, it could not be easier. Ordering prints from walgreens is harder + more expensive.
Each month, you get a new Groovebook. The covers of the photo books are adorable. My first month I got the adorable coffee cup cover, which is so perfect for me as I’m always tired and drinking coffee! #momlife. I can’t wait to see what cover I get next month!
Groovebook really does solve a lot of my photo problems. I can get my favorite photos printed in my Groovebook and that frees up storage on my phone! Plus, it is so refreshing and fun to have photos printed out. I have so much stuff on my phone, so it’s SO nice to have physical photos of Gracie to look at.
I almost forgot to mention one of the best parts! The photos in the Groovebook are on easy-to-tear sheets! That means you can just tear out the photos if you want! I’m planning on leaving some in the book, and tearing some out to frame, do DIY projects with, and give to family members! Which reminds me… you can rip out photos to give to family, but you can also gift one of your monthly Groovebooks to a family member! How neat is that!
Another cool thing about the Groovebook is that the date, time, and location shows up on each picture. It’s not actually on the picture (which I love!), but it’s in the binding of each shot. This is great for remembering baby milestones! I know I’ll appreciate these dates when I’m looking back through old Groovebooks down the road.
I really recommend getting set up with Groovebook. Download the app, and get started uploading your favorite pics! Use code GRACEFULMOMMY to get your first Groovebook FREE!! After your first book, each book is only $2.99. You cannot beat that price!
