Graduation books have always been one of my favorite themes because I find them inspiring, exciting and sentimental all at the same time. It’s lovely to see our children progress from one institution to the next and the books that come through our offices are always amazing. This particular book caught my eye. And with permission, I can’t wait to show it to you.

 Isn’t the cover lovely. I’ve mentioned it time and time again because covers are important. Choosing the right cover photo or design has a big impact on your photo books. What I love about this sweet cover is the delicate, feminine and elegant design.

Often, graduation books hold inspirational messages and poems. And I think there’s nothing more fitting than reminding your child of what they’ve accomplished and pairing this with beautiful expressions. I love this poem from Natasha Bedingfield and I think it speaks perfectly to new transitions.


I love how the inspirational messages are paired with things Deanna has already accomplished. This is a subtle touch but it’s a great way to remind your child of all that they’ve achieved and in a soft unspoken way, it reminds them that the next challenge may not be so hard after all.

Of course, no graduation or yearbook would be complete without a quote from two of my favorites, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Dr. Seuss. If you need some great inspiration quotes, check out this link for some design friendly quotes and this link for some traditional quotes.

When parents ask what type of pictures should go in a graduation book, I often say, “Any type.” I think how this book is organized is lovely. The book, as you’ve seen, starts out featuring Deanna and shows her and many of the accomplishments she’s surpassed. Then, it transitions to include pictures of family and friends. And then it ends with some milestone shots: Senior Prom and the lovely cap and gown shot. I think this is a lovely way to organize your photos and your message. And of course, I love how it ends.
