The Value in Professional Photography & Print
Growing up, I would love to sit and sift through the many photo albums my mother had compiled over the years. I would cozy up on the couch and take a glorious trip down memory lane looking through memories I was too young to remember or too busy to appreciate. Family photos & hideous school portraits would adorn the fireplace & framed images would be scattered throughout the house. These pictures are what made our house a home. For the life of me, I can’t remember the couch I sat on or the clothes I was wearing, I just remember sitting there and feeling content & at peace.
Photos are becoming an ever-growing popular way to communicate our lives through social media. The days of print have become almost obsolete… But I believe the value of print needs to be refocused. What would happen if your facebook account was hacked or there was some terrible virus that spread through your computer? Those precious memories could possibly be lost.
Why a professional photographer? Why pay the price?
Well, why a couch or new dining set? Why an expensive haircut? Because these are all items & services known as investments. We pay a great sum for something that will be of value in our lives for a long period of time. When we pay a professional photographer to capture our important milestones & this is something we’re going to keep forever. This is something our children will cherish forever. And doesn’t something like that deserve to be on the walls in our home as opposed to the wall on our facebook page? Doesn’t it deserve to be in a tangible album that can’t be deleted or overlooked? I believe it does.
A professional photographer is trained to create pieces of art that reflects your family, your child, your pet or/and your wedding day. An IPhone just can’t capture that degree of professionalism, creativity & quality. The professionalism of the photographer will help make the process stress free & efficient. The creativity that the photographer brings will make your images unique & personal. The high resolution/quality makes it possible for you to invest in wall art pieces to decorate & personalize your home.
Luckily there are many photographers to choose from… so how do you choose? Because this is your investment, choose a photographer whose work speaks to you. You are investing in images of your family that will last lifetimes. By going with someone you love, you wont be disappointed & the experience will be worth it for you.
After your session is complete. After you photos are edited. After your photographer presents them to you. After you choose your images & order products you will cherish forever… It will be your children cuddled up on the couch wandering through memory lane with an album in hand, surrounded by photos of their past in a home you have created for them. Preserve your precious memories & invest in quality, because this is one of the most valued services that you & your family will treasure.
Bringing Print & Digital Together...
I Just received this order for a client & I LOVE it!! One of my new products - the USB box set is just gorgeous & the perfect way to compliment the package. The USB will contain all the edited digital images from the session so she can print up to an 8x12 image & have a hard copy to keep forever (The print release in included with the purchase of this product package). As an added bonus, she also received 4x6 metallic prints of all the edited images in her gallery. She can keep these in the box or add them to her family photo album. Everything is personalized to make it even more special! Because this was a newborn session, I have included their little one's name & birthdate on the box. If you are interested in this product or love how it looks feel free to leave a comment!
Other featured products is the 3x3 accordion mini with the leather binding, (5) 5x7 gift prints so she can send them out to family & (5) 8x10 metallic prints.
