From the very first minute one would like to keep every single moment spent with the newborn. We keep all these impressions and memories as photographs, greetings cards from the family and friends, the newspaper headlines from the day of birth, the birth wristband, the first curl or ultrasound images... Here are some ideas on how to keep your baby's first steps in a Pixum Photo Album.
From pennant chains to the first self-painted pictures: capture those unique moments in a Pixum Baby Album.
A photo album offers more than just a plenty of space for large and small snaps. It can be individually designed and has room for all kinds of reminiscence. Choose the format that's best for you. When choosing the cover, please consider if you want to glue in some memorabilia that are not quite flat - the softcover with glue binding is a great choice because it is made of flexible cardboard.
Keep everything you enjoy to look back at the first months of your child's life and use the memorabilia to decorate your Pixum Photo Book.
Leave some space on the pages for your spontaneous ideas:
- a self-made pennant chain
- a tiny baby sock
- paintings by siblings
- notes of a nursery rhyme your baby adores
Insert a calendar sheet where you mark when the baby slept through for the first time, when it had its first porridge, or when your newborn reached for your finger for the first time.
With the free photo book software from Pixum you have many additional design possibilities for a beautiful baby photo book at your disposal. Small illustrations, the so-called cliparts - such as a funny sun or a comic-style rattle - offer theme-related surroundings for the most beautiful family moments. A frame in the favourite colour will also highlight a photo. Play with shapes, sizes and text to tell your story. You can choose the font and font colour to accentuate the theme of the album. Specify how an empty page can be used in the headings - for example: "Your first footprint". You can also scan an image and add it to the photo album afterwards.
Take your time while designing your Pixum Photo Book. The draft will be saved on your computer so tha you can continue any time you want until it exactly meets your expectations.

A photo album for boys does not have to be in blue and come up with knights, football themes or fire fighters. With Pixum, you get a plenty of other options to design your new baby album.
How about a collection of your son's favourite things? This could be his favourite toy or food, his most loved soft toy or TV hero. Take pictures of your child during his favourite activity- this collection of great snaps might be worth a single photo book!
You could also add encouraging messages or quotations to your photo albums as well as unusual graphics, frames and other design elements to make the album even more vivid. Choose his favourite colour for the background or use similarly coloured cliparts or frames throughout the book.
No clichés and simply magical: Photo albums for girls
You might find many ready-made baby albums on the market to capture the most enchanting memories of the first months of your daughter's life. But they all have one thing in common: gaudy baby pink and glitter. Not every parent and not every little girl loves this "pink princess glitter dream". We are rather looking for a photo book far away from any clichés or simply one that suits the daughter and the family. Here at Pixum, you can create a photo book fully designed by you. No compromises!
Here are some ideas to keep the harmony of your artwork:
- start a new page for the next important milestones in your child's development, each with a photo of it (e.g. the first smile, the first steps or the first breakfast porridge).
- glue in small souvenirs afterwards, for example a tiny curl from the first haircut or the first painting (on the living room wall).
- comment on each recorded event in the book, each from the perspective of mum and dad. This will be a unique parenting encyclopedia for your child in the future.
- make a foot and handprint of your daughter every month and add it to your baby photo album.
