In the “old” days of film, you had no choice but to print your pictures and either frame them or place them in an album! I don’t know about you, but I love grabbing one of my parent’s old photo albums and just sitting down looking through the pictures!!
But in today’s modern era of technology our images are digital and the choices become endless! However, it seems the digital images have become the must-have hot item, but few actually do anything with them for others to see! How many of you have cds of photo sessions lying around? How many of those images have you actually done anything with?
In a digital world, everything is at a faster pace, including life! There isn’t time to get it all done! You schedule a time to get those family portraits, you piece together all the outfits, and you work hard to get those perfect pictures! The session is complete and you get your digital images, now what? Life happens... and you set that cd aside and tell yourself you will order some pictures soon! Next thing you know, a year has passed and the process starts again only you never printed anything from the previous year! Has this happened to you?
I challenge you this year to print those images into something you can show off to the world - prints in frames, canvases on a wall, or digital albums for your family and friends to look through for years to come!
I have always loved photography, but my love of photography definitely grew exponentially after having children! Those memories have become all the more precious, and my pictures are likely my most valued material possession! Here are a few ways I showcase my photos in my home!!!
