Calling all animal lovers! Andy Parker here, Snapfish Brand Copy Director and dog lover. Recently, I created a photo book dedicated to the two furry loves of my life, my dogs Bear and Dozer. I had a lot of amazing photos to work with (thanks to my husband), which made creating my book a blast. I took lots of notes for you, so if you’re interested in creating a photo book to celebrate your fur babies, read on for pointers and setters. And no more bad puns, I promise.
iPhone newbies, we got you! We know that a new smartphone can be intimidating (all those apps!) and hard to navigate in the beginning. No fear, we’ve all been there.

We at Snapfish have come up with three of our best tips on choosing the perfect embellishments to help you create your own unique personalised Christmas photo book.
