Marina on Food, Part 2

Hey Marina, why make a photo book?

Creating a food album with a Photo by Walgreens Photo Book is the perfect way to store a collection of recipes or document your exotic travels. Wouldn’t it be nice to have YiaYia’s macadamia-nut cookies recipe beneath a mouth-watering photograph of the addicting treats? And Uncle Bill’s famous beer-battered cod definitely deserves a spot…

And, remember when you went to Antigua last winter with the fam and inhaled a delectable assortment of fish delicacies? How wonderful would it be if you could remember them forever? Now you can!

I actually made an entire food photo book after returning home from my last family vacay, (not only pics of the food, but photos of us happily eating it) and sent one to my mom and one to my aunt. When they received it in the mail, they were beyond thrilled. My ears are still ringing just thinking about their jubilant squeals of happiness.

Have you ever made a photo book with prints solely of food?

YES, YES and YES! Of course I did! I’m so glad that you asked. Last week I finished a photo book project I’ve been working on for quite some time. My friends and I were on a kick where we went to restaurants that started with a different letter each week. For example, week 1 was “A,” week 2 was “B,” and so on. I took a photo from each delectable dish each week and put them all in a book that I called “Feasting from A to Z.” I ordered four of them and gave one to each of my friends! Now we all have matching photo books and will always remember our exciting edible adventures.

Say what?!

Hay hay hay, I know!

What’s another food photo book you put together?

I actually made one totally based around the color yellow. That doesn’t mean that every dish had to be like a banana…sometimes it could be just a yellow flair. Or a dish that reminded me of bright, beaming sunshine. Basically, I wanted a big, bold color that pulled lots of different foods and flavors together.

This one was just for me. I like to prove to myself just how creative I can be. Is that so bad?


Great, I didn’t think so. :)

Thanks, Marina!

No, thank you!

  1. My boyfriend and I went to have our pictures made for our anniversary. They came out great (if I do say so myself) and I wanted a cute quirky way to show the family. I put them all in a photo book and added some cute quotes to the pages. It came out GREAT and everyone loved it. Keepsake for forever :)
