I often hear clients say that they only want the digital images from their session. While it's true that having digital copies of your photos is important and convenient, I want to share with you some things to consider before you decide to pass on professional prints, wall art, and albums.
First and foremost, the emotional value of physical prints cannot be underestimated. There's something special about being able to hold a physical copy of a photo in your hand, or seeing it displayed on your walls or in an album. It adds an extra layer of meaning and sentimental value to the images, and it allows you to relive those special moments every time you see them.
In addition to the emotional value, there are also practical considerations to keep in mind. Professional prints and products are made with high quality materials and techniques, ensuring that they will last for generations to come. Cheap commercial printers and at-home printing options simply cannot compare in terms of quality and longevity. Investing in professional prints and products is a way to preserve your memories and ensure that they will be enjoyed by future generations.
Another thing to consider is that professional prints and products make for beautiful and meaningful gifts. Imagine giving your parents or grandparents a stunning canvas or album filled with images of their loved ones – it would be a gift they could cherish forever.
Finally, think about the value of your time and energy. It can be tempting to try to save money by printing photos at home or using a cheap commercial printer, but the time and energy that goes into selecting, ordering, and printing the photos yourself can be significant. By investing in professional prints and products, you can save yourself the hassle and know that you're getting the best quality products.
In conclusion, while digital images are certainly important and convenient, don't overlook the value of professional prints, wall art, and albums. They add an extra layer of emotional meaning and sentimental value to your images, they are made with high quality materials and techniques to ensure longevity, they make for beautiful and meaningful gifts, and they save you time and energy. Investing in professional prints and products is a way to preserve your memories and ensure that they will be enjoyed by future generations.
