Back to school | Capturing memories

Back to school - Capturing Memories

When the children return to school in September it starts another year of capturing memories.  From the photos of them in their nice, new uniforms standing outside their new classroom to their very first piece of artwork that they have bought home.  School milestones like playing a donkey in the Christmas nativity, taking part in the school sports team and having fun at sports day.  

These are all memories that both parents and children make throughout the school year but how to you capture these? Do you take a snap on your phone, share it to Facebook and then only look back when you are feeling a little nostalgic about your little ones growing up too fast?

Why not capture these memories and have them printed on to a slim photo canvas.  Choose whether you showcase their back to school photo, a snapshot of them with their friends or another school day memory.  With prices starting at just ยฃ17.99 and available in a range of different sizes.  The slim design makes the canvas look and feel sleek against any backdrop and would look great standing on a shelf in a child’s bedroom or hung with pride in the family photo gallery wall.
