Jordan 4 years - need advice

Finally did Jordan's 4 year pictures for her professional photos book. But I'm not sure which way to put it in the book. What do you think?

number 4 on left

number 4 on right

a close up of the title - still a bit washed out, I wanted you to see the pink shadowing behind the yellow letters. I'm on my laptop though and the monitor isn't great. Maybe it will look better on another computer. Lol

And a bonus picture - this is the stuff for the consignment sale. There's a TON of stuff here for me to tag (but only spring/summer clothes can be sold so about a third will have to wait until the fall sale)

I like the number 4 on the left. Lol It's cute either way though! I love the pink matte and I don't know, it just looks better to me on the left as the focal point. (eyes are naturally drawn to the left is what I read once)

How do you end up with so much to consign every 6 months? I don't think I'd have that much built up over 2 years!

I have four kids ROFL Andrew and Jack are off-season from each other, same with the girls. So I have all seasons in all sizes, if that makes sense. As Natalie is outgrowing her stuff, I'm selling/donating/freecycling it. Same with Jack. No more babies here. (and by getting rid of everything, I'm making that even more official - it would cost too much to have to buy everything again, right?). There are toys, videos, books in the mix too - things my kids don't use much that there's no sense keeping. We have way too many things.

Read from left to right so I'm going with the left. It makes it more aesthetically pleasing I think.

That makes sense! I know I could have a pile that big in just toys, and I only have one child.

LOL, I gave soooo much of Kayson's stuff away thinking I'd "never" have another baby and now we are TTC#2. Never in my life would I have thought I'd want more than one! I've definitely learned never to say never!!

I'm partial to 4 on the right.

Kudos to you for consigning. I really want to after this baby. I am pretty sure that DH and I are done.

I like the second version better too. I think the pages flow better with the writing being all the way to one side of the two page LO. If you want the wording on the left it needs to be to the left of the picture too.

So did you decide?

4 on the right

Because the way she is laying in the flower page it seems more natural for her to just be off the page and not cut off. If the 4 was on the left I want to see her entire body on the other page.

I think I put the 4 on the right (with the title). funny that I can't even remember, and I put it in earlier today. will have to go back and check again. I was looking at the layouts from her 3 year picture, and was just amazed at the changes a year brings. Natalie is 3 now, so it was even stranger looking at Jordan at 3. hard to believe that it's been over 2.5 years since Jordan turned 3. time is fleeting, these pages just remind me of that.
