The Importance of Printing your Photos

You would think that as a photographer I'd have prints, upon prints, upon prints of my life. And that's partially true, from ages 0-18 I have boxes and albums full of photos of me growing up, with my family and with my friends. But since that point, I have so little to show for my life in pictures; a few here, a couple from that trip, but not nearly what has been captured through my iPhone. My photos live on Facebook, Instagram, old iPhones and "the cloud". I don't know about you, but I don't even know how to access that!

Since becoming a mother, printing photos of my son has been one of my biggest priorities. When he's an adult, I want him to be able to flip through old albums, or dig through a box of photos and see the images his mother took of him growing up. Those photos from my childhood are so special to me; I want him to have the same thing.

This desire to have beautiful, printed photos for my son has carried over to my clients. For years I handed over images and hoped that my clients printed them out. I cannot even begin to tell you the number of clients that have come back to me years later wanting digital files because they lost theirs and never made prints. Most times I've had them, but a few times I haven't. It breaks my heart. 

Having physical prints is not only special, but RARE. These beautiful products are not just a gift for you, but for your children. You're giving them memories for when they grow up.
