Where's your portraits?

August 05, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I was talking to a client today about personal branding images for her business. During the conversation, she mentioned she still needs to print her child's senior portraits. So, of course, I asked when they had them taken?

 

3 years ago!!!! 

 

This is not unusual when I talk to new clients.

Those images will stay on whatever memory system that was available at the time the images were taken. Let's think a minute we have gone from floppy disks, hard disks, zip drives, CD/DVD's, USB's, the cloud....what's next? Technology changes too quickly. I just purchased a new MacBookPro for my studio and guess what there is NOT a CD drive or USB port in it!  

Oh, wait! You have all your pictures on your phone! When was the last time it crashed, broke, or lost your phone to never see those memories again?  If you try to print wall art from your phone it will be pixilated and very poor quality. 
 

But guess what I still have photographs of my grandparent's wedding, pictures of my parents growing up, parents wedding, pictures of me growing up, and yes my senior year (don't get me started on my 80's hair and all the aqua net that was used), and yes I even have a Glamour Shot portrait (I worked there in college).

I have memories to cherish for myself and for my family's lifetime.
 

This is why I don't sell digital images, but amazing wall art for my clients and their families to cherish for a lifetime. 

I am not serving my clients by saying here you print your family memories, on poor quality paper that will change colors, fade, at a non-profressional lab that may only last 10 years or worse yet NEVER be printed for the family to cherish and remember.

These are moments in our lives that only happen once, and need to be preserved, enjoyed, and shared with family and friends. 

 

What memories do you want to preserve next?
