Photographs are some of the most treasured things we possess. They offer a glimpse into the past; unlocking memories of those we love, including those who may no longer be with us. Often, photographs are the only proof of existence to those who came before us, and they’ll be the same for those who come after us. They are visual stories of our lives, our heritage; our history.
In 10 Years, Those Digital Photographs Will Be Gone
It’s often said that the most photographed generation won’t have photos for the generations to come. In this day and age, it’s so easy to fall back on technology. We take photos of our children and friends, upload them to social media, then onto the hard drive they go, often forgotten, even lost. The truth is, hard drives fail, iPhones break, USB’s get lost, and disks get scratched. No one knows if Facebook or Instagram will be around 10, 20, even 50 years from now. Remember MySpace? The only true way to preserve those precious images is to have them printed. As a portrait photographer, mother, wife and daughter, I implore my clients to print their photographs. Your memories are so special and so important; they simply must be preserved for your children and grandchildren to enjoy. This is so significant to me that I offer my clients digital copies for social media sharing, but the beautiful portraits they purchase are printed with archival inks designed to stand the test of time. If you don’t have portraits of yourself or your family printed in your home, please allow me to create some for you. I would love to tell your story through classic, fine art portraiture because I believe everyone deserves beautiful, timeless portraits that can be treasured for generations to come.
