Shared Albums: Free Photo Sharing for the Holidays
Cookie exchanges, office parties, school concerts, and tree lightings. There’s no doubt the holiday season is jam-packed with events. While it can be hard to balance it all, this is a magical time of year when people gather to create lasting memories.
Because these precious moments of togetherness are fleeting, it’s important to make an effort to capture and preserve them through photos. Luckily, Shared Albums on Memento offers an easy way to collect photos and videos from a group and share them after the event. While there are tons of free photo sharing websites out there, Memento’s best-in-class platform is the photo sharing solution for all of your holiday events.

10 Reasons to Create a Shared Album This Holiday Season
Use Shared Albums for all of your holiday happenings!
1. Family Gathering
Don’t miss the moment when your niece unwraps the top gift on her wish list, when Uncle Murray lights the menorah, or when Aunt Debbie gives her annual heartfelt toast at Christmas dinner. Capture and upload photos and videos of these moments so everyone can relive them.
2. Friend Party
Get a pic of that Ugly Sweater contest winner, the recipient of the worst White Elephant gift, or everyone’s gingerbread house creations. No matter what type of party you attend, be sure to snap, film, upload, and share.
3. Workplace Party
Whether it’s a happy hour, potluck, or big, fancy soirée, invite your colleagues to upload their photos with one simple link. Bonus: Shared Albums give you the option to review pictures before they appear in your album so you can ensure that they’re suitable for work.
4. School Event
Capture moments from Ms. Martin’s class play, the 5th grade holiday concert, or the high school basketball team’s fundraising dinner. Share the pictures and videos with parents who weren’t able to attend so they can experience the event, too!
5. Holiday Outing
Going on a magical North Pole train ride with friends and their kiddos? How about a wreath-making class with your gal pals? Collect all the photos from the day so you can easily look back on them fondly years from now.
6. Weddings, Babies + Birthdays
Yes, people get married, have baby showers, and celebrate birthdays this time of year. Let guests capture the big and small moments from these celebrations and download your favorite photos at their original resolution afterwards.
7. Big Trips
Going somewhere special over the holidays with friends or family? Whether you plan to hit the slopes in Vail, sunbathe on a beach in Bora Bora, or put on your mouse ears for a Disney vacation, know that there will be no more “Will you text me that photo?” when you create a Shared Album.
8. Community Event
Get your friends and neighbors to share their photos from the city-wide house decorating contest, town caroling event, or local polar bear plunge to capture all the candid moments that otherwise might be missed.
9. Nonprofit Events
Whether you’re a volunteer, board member, or employee, easily contribute and collect photos from that toy drive, winter coat collection, or charity ball to show the impact your organization has on the community.
10. Religious Gatherings
This time of year, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Eid al-Fitr often bring people together at their place of worship. Encourage members of your community to upload photos from these celebrations and festivities then share a slideshow of everyone’s photos after the event.
Sharing photos during the holidays has never been easier. No matter what the occasion, use Shared Albums for a simple way to capture and share precious holiday moments.
