Confining your precious family photographs in the digital dungeon that is your computer makes no sense. And restricting them to your mobile is just mean – it is so small, how can they even breathe in there?
Photographs are your history, your memories. They should be out in the light, on your walls where they can breathe and be a part of the family. They should be in beautiful albums that can be taken out to visit friends and relatives, or paged through during quiet time. Photographs should wrap you in memories like a big, cuddly blanket.
Portrait photography used to be so different from how we do it these days. It used to be about getting smartly dressed and behaving properly in a portrait studio. Everyone was posed and asked to smile endlessly until even the parents felt like squirming and whining. I’m not talking about that many years ago either. So much fun. Like everything else technology has given us the freedom to get outdoors and move at a much faster pace. These days only fitness levels prevent a good photographer from keeping up with the kids. In fact, I strongly recommend taking up family photography if you’re looking for regular cardio workouts without going to the gym. Now we just get out there, we have fun and let personalities shine.
Of course it is lovely to have beautiful memories close to hand. Every parent wants to show photographs of their gorgeous children to friends and family…and sometimes even strangers. I give my photography clients their very own personalised app to download to their phone. It is an easy to use digital album of their favourite photographs from their photo shoot. They love the beautiful, high quality photographs perfectly suited to digital display.
