Everyone is loving the new InstaAlbum we launched a few weeks ago! We love that we've given you the chance to compile all of your favorite personal images - and as a bonus you can display it in your studio to have your clients swooning over getting one for all of their own images! Today we have a great share from Lena of Lena Hyde Photography, "I take tons of pictures of my family with my iPhone, and I don't want them to just be archived away on the computer. Every vacation is made into an album, and this one is so much fun and easy to populate! My kids will never be that age again, and I love having a beautiful, high quality album that we can always look back on and enjoy."From the shop: Digital point-and-shoots and smartphone camera applications have added a level of personalization to the world of photography. These fun digitals are a glimpse into your personal life through simple capture technology. Archiving them should be just as personal ”“ and just as simple! The InstaAlbum is a simple-to-use template layout that can be tailored to fit virtually any album specifications. The layout's square photo slots are designed to accommodate Instagram imaging with minimal adjustments, but are also fully editable for customized shapes and sizes. InstaAlbum is the perfect template for creating album products for senior sessions, modern engagements, and even photo books to market your own studio.

Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
