Printed photos have always been incredibly important to me. I remember from a young age spending many hours poring over boxes of family photos. These magical pieces of glossy paper somehow had the ability to ingrain experiences into my heart and mind. There is one particular photo album which mostly contains photos of me as a baby. The images were taken by my grandfather with his fancy new film camera. This album also includes hilarious commentary alongside each print, written by my Mom. This is one of my most precious possessions to this date. I love the physicality of having a print or album in your hand. This experience is something which has been lost in the modern world.
Now, in our digital age, despite good intentions, so many beautiful pictures get relegated to a hard drive or the cloud. We might share a few favourites on social media, but the vast majority never see the light of day again.
Long before I became a professional photographer, I knew that I wanted to pay for regular portraits of me and my loved ones to capture glimpses of us at different stages throughout our lives. I'm happy to say it's a tradition I have clung to. Every year, I book a professional photoshoot for my family. And no matter how many portraits of us gather digital dust, the ones that I get printed or made into albums from those shoots are the ones that take pride of place in our home. They give me cause to stop and smile almost every day, and I can't wait to share our beautiful wedding album with my daughter when she's older.
These pictures are worth their weight in gold. It's not the paper and ink that gives them value but the memories attached to them. It's about the stories behind the frame and how you felt at that moment when the camera clicked. That's why I have chosen the best printing service possible for your memories. I guarantee you will be blown away by the quality of the products.
The best? Absolutely.
Last a lifetime? Yes!
Something you'll hide away? Never.
“Nostalgia - its delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek nostalgia literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.”
