“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”  Destin Sparks

Milo is my sweet last baby.  He was born early but grew so fast.  I’m holding onto those sweet moments with my sweet boy and taking so many photos of him.    I needed a way to honor these beautiful photos and found it with Artifact Uprising.  Artifact Uprising makes these beautiful books to document the first year of your child’s life.  It’s also such a sweet idea for a new mom gift.  All of my friends will be getting these charming books in the foreseeable future.

I have hard drives and hard drives of photographs of my children and while I stress the importance of printing your photographs to my photography clients, I never follow my own advice.      Until now, Artifact Uprising has made it so easy to print your photographs and display with a beautiful interactive journal.

The Baby Book – Story of you is an interactive photo journal for baby’s first year and beyond, the Story of You encourages parents to create new and meaningful habits as they document their child’s life.   It’s like a journal with beautiful prompts to accompany your photographs.   It comes in 4 beautiful colors;  smoke ( a beautiful light grey),  olive (a rich deep green), orchidee (a playful blush) and pacific blue (my favorite and the color we used for Milo because it matches his eyes).  Each color is complimented with a gorgeous foil color.  Our pacific blue is beautifully paired with a copper.   The the book is made with premium quality materials and designed to be a timeless heirloom to stay in your families cedar chest for years to come.

The printed photographs are just as beautiful from Artifact Uprising.  You can use the web ordering page or simply download the app.  Artifact Uprising uses FSC certified, acid free archival, Mohawk Superfine Eggshell, White 120#. This paper has a high quality, textured matte-finish.

Artifact Uprising was founded in 2012, by sisters Katie & Jenna.  They took their decade of experience working as professional photographers to create printed photo goods with elevated quality, thoughtful design and responsibly-sourced materials.  But these books are not just for photographers, they are for parents everywhere who want to remember the beauty of their babies.

Babies are Such a Nice Way To Start People, this book will help you remember every sweet detail.

“A tear contains an ocean. A photographer is aware of the tiny moments in a persons life that reveal greater truths.”


“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” Ansel Adams
