Why Printing Your Pictures Is So Important………
I’ll bet you, like me, have taken so many photographs over lockdown and the past year!
You might have used your phone today camera today, you may even use your camera everyday. It has never been easier to take photographs-we all carry a camera in our telephone. And yet our children have fewer physical prints to hold and look at.
When I was a child I used to love looking through my Dad and my Nan’s old photographs and albums. There were lots of negatives too which I loved holding up to the light to view images from our Family walks, holidays and outings.
My First Camera a SuperColor 110
My Nan bought me my first camera a Supercolor 110 and I would love taking the film out of its wrapping and I’d get snapping at Family, Friends and pets. Then my Nan would kindly send it off to Bonus Print for me and I’d eagerly await its return a few weeks later!
Imagine if those precious memories were instead sitting on something that needed a machine to let me see them. A machine that was around in the 40’s or even the 70’s. Even if my Nan had kept the machines I’d needed, would just seeing them hold the same magic for me. Definitely not.
So have a think about where you store your own family photographs. Are they on your mobile phone? A hard drive? CD’s? Mini discs? (remember those!?) Floppy discs? You get my point – technology is changing so rapidly that it can be difficult to keep up. The must-have storage of today is archived in favour of something new every few years.
The only way you can be sure to preserve your picture memories for your children and grandchildren is to print them.
Your Mobile Phone Pictures
For most of us, our mobile phones are where the majority of our ‘snaps’ are kept. The everyday images of holidays, days out, toothy grins, first foods, and silly selfies. These are the images your children will cherish when they grow up – you must print them! And you have loads of options for printing from your mobile phone online.
Your Professional pictures
As well as the every day snaps, most families choose a professional photographer, like me, to capture more important milestones. New additions to the family, birthdays, a new pet, or the annual family portrait all involve a professional portrait photographer who can capture you all in a perfect setting, looking your best. The portraits I produce are your own personal works of art and are designed to be displayed. there’s lots of evidence to show that it boosts self-esteem and confidence when your portrait are displayed in your home.
I offer clients packages as well as wall art, and although I do sell USBs which hold the digital copies of your images, I always recommend purchasing prints and wall art products from me as I use a professional lab so I can guarantee the quality.
Time for new Family Portraits? Don’t hesitate to get in touch to book you Family Session and you could be sitting on walls in 10 years time looking down at your expanded family thinking “I’m so glad the day we all made the effort to get together to have a family portrait taken”
Lots of love
