1. Choose Your Subject

Start by selecting the subject of your photo book. Are you showcasing images from a specific trip, a collection of events, or a compilation of various summer activities? Deciding what you’ll focus on in your book will help you to create a cohesive story. 

2. Organize Your Photos

Go through your summer photos and select the best ones that fit with the subject of your photo book. Organize them by date or event to make the process smoother. Be sure to include a mix of photos taken in different orientations as well as candid and posed shots. 

3. Select a Theme & Layout
