Here’s a question for you: What do you do with your digital photos? Your vacation photos, cell phone snaps, session photos? Do they live on your computer or on disks/thumb drives? Or are they printed up large, framed and hung on that perfect spot on the wall for everyone to see? Do they live in a book that you can tangibly hold in your hands? Remember when we used to carry pics of our kids in our wallets? I do. I have this silly school photo of my first born when he was two years old wearing a race car driver outfit and a mean mug still in my wallet, tucked behind my driver’s license.
I was thinking the other day about my husband and my 10-year anniversary. We celebrated it and my then 8-year-old’s birthday by taking the kids on a Disney Cruise. I didn’t take a whole lot of photos but there were a couple in particular that I remember loving and never seeing because, well… they live on my computer. I am constantly reminding clients of the importance of printing their session images. I know we all get busy, which is one of the reasons why I always include 5×7 prints of all digital files and one large framed print with all my packages. But I need to take my own advice. I’ve decided to carve out a little bit of time a week to go through old photos and either get them printed or put in a book. This particular photo is going up on the wall:
I love this one so much. We had stood in long line earlier that day to meet her favorite Disney Princesses, which is why she is wearing her tiara. We can call this my #fbf 😉 I was going to do a #tbt but I guess I’m a little late! Stay tuned next week for another as I continue to go through my archives to get these photos printed!
