The Importance of prints

I can still remember when I was younger and sitting with my grandparents, looking through old albums and asking all kinds of questions about where they were and lived and different holidays and people.

In fact, even a few weeks ago when I went to visit my Nan, there was a picture on the side in a frame of two people I didn’t recognise, turns out it was my Nan and Grandad at a prom about a week after they first started dating and I didn’t recognise them.

At home, we have a beautiful multi frame of when I was pregnant with my other little two playing around or giving their ‘not yet born’ sister a kiss and 11 year later, it still makes me smile and we still talk about the experience and how fun it was. 

 

In a world where millions of photos get taken every day, don’t let the ones that are important to get swallowed up on a ‘camera roll’ to then be backed up somewhere and never seen or even left on a usb to only be shared on Facebook.

Did you know that 1.2 trillion photographs were taken last year.  Would you even know where your images are or how to access them?

I pride myself on selling quality products with digital images, everyone wants the digitals, but a lot of the time they just sit in a drawer somewhere, with one or two printed,  these are essentially your digital negatives.  Do you still have negatives of your photos before digital came along,  or just the beautifully printed images displayed somewhere. 

Now I am not going to tell you that all of my images are beautifully finished professionally printed products in my home, because they just aren’t.  I have random frames images of me and my Nan in mounted prints on the side but they are special.  They fill me with joy and love and sometimes sadness.  All those things we take for granted in our busy everyday life, you can just stop and take in.  everyday, every single day for the rest of your life and then your Childrens lives.

Printing these images and having them up on your home not only reminds you and your family of an incredible time but also brings up lots of conversations and is proven to build confidence and happiness in the home.

This is why we invest in the best products for you and your family to continually bring happiness from your pregnancy (kids love to see these), your newborn, your sitter and family sessions to keep the memories alive forever

    Love this, what’s the point in buying the digitals if they’re only going to sit in a drawer, gathering cyber dust?! Get those digitals printed and up on those walls 🙂

    This was such a valuable read, thank you for sharing it. Photos should live on walls, not hidden on USBs in draws.

      I did this with my wedding photos, took 2 years to get them printed off the USB as life took over. Now if I go to a photographer I order the prints with them so I know they go up x
