Month In Photos: June 2013


I decided to post a monthly photo collage here on My Organized Chaos.

The challenge is to sum up the entire month in just a few photos, highlighting the best of the month, with the month and year stamped on it.

My neighbour {who is also a FAB Alberta Photographer, by the way} has been doing this for a while and she prints each months photo, and makes a ‘year of photos’ album. Cute idea, right? {she got the idea here}.

While I do post Wordless Wednesday photos, I thought the album idea was a fantastic one. I have been slacking on making photo books lately {I usually do one for each season}, and thought that one-pagers like this might be easier to keep up with. So thanks April! 🙂

June marks the end of school and the start of Summer holidays. Camping, playing outside and enjoying the time spent together, doing anything and everything. The first part of the month seems to be a whirlwind with so many activities and end-of-the-year events in the schedule. 

Now, it’s shifted – just as busy yet more relaxed and carefree. Here’s to the start of Summer 2013! Cheers!




    1. If there’s enough interest Randa, I will! That would be fun!
      Get one up in the next couple of days and link back in the comments here. I’d love to see!

      1. Wait, did that come across as bossy? I mean IF you do one, which you should, let me know.
        ok, that’s still bossy … dammit, just do it! lol

  1. what a great idea, I might have to do this next month. I agree, June has left me exhausted!

  2. I don’t know if I’d be able to get it down to just a few pictures! But this is an awesome project. Love your pictures! What a super fun June!!

  3. I love how you mixed in some black & white photos. I really need to start doing a lot more photo taking, and honestly buy a better camera to preserve our memories better.

    1. Thanks Crissy! All prior photos in boxes and on disks, looking forward to something that’s easy to put into an album!

  4. Now that’s a seriously great idea!!! I should put this down on the calendar and schedule in a day to do this!!
    Your small fry are really just way too cute too!

  5. I like the idea 🙂 Breaking it down into a smaller ‘chore’ might make it easier to keep at for sure 🙂

  6. Cute photos! I especially love the blowing bubbles one 🙂 Such a great (and relatively quick and easy!) idea to do the monthly photo page to create a photo book for the entire year!

  7. Aw – I like the lemonade stand photo best…reminds me of my childhood. And that’s a fancy stand.

  8. Your girls are getting so big since the first pictures you posted, they are so cute, nice photo’s!

    1. I know!! It’s fun to look back at the first photos I posted, wow, just wow!
      Nice keepsake right here!

  9. It’s a great idea! Unfortunately, I can not use it… if I get 1 worthy shoot per month, I consider it a huge luck.

  10. Love this idea of making a year scrapbook of each month’s best photos! Looks like your kids are having great summer fun already this year!

  11. Oh what a great idea! I need to do this to help keep my photos organized and more condensed.

  12. I love the black and white photo’s they look sharp (never thought I would say that)

  13. An awesome idea and by picking pics you really like makes the summer and the times more special..thanks for sharing with all of us. Happy Summer!!

  14. I love this idea! What a great way to cherish the memories month by month. I will have to do this!

  15. I like your idea of photo journaling the summer…we always take so many pictures and then just put them away. I’m going to scrapbook our summer this year, thanks for the great idea.

  16. What a fabulous idea! I am not creative in anyway at all to come up with stuff like that…

  17. Your girls are just beautiful! I’m sure you are in full summer mode by now! Thanks for sharing!

  18. excellent idea capturing they moments so surreal how one month after they can look so diff.
