Why Printed Photographs are Important?
Today’s world is all about the digital. Digital movies, digital files, and digital images. Digital seems to be the way of the future. So why should you worry about getting printed photographs?
Most photographers offer packages that include digital images, however, it’s important to get printed photographs from your family, newborn, or maternity session to ensure that your priceless memories last for years.
I offer collections that include the best of both worlds, digital images as well as a print credit to use on prints, wall art, albums, and more!
4 Reasons to Order Prints From Your Photographer
1. Digital Images can Get Lost
Has your computer ever crashed? Have you ever upgraded your phone only to realize that all of the photos on your old phone didn’t transfer over? I know I have.
When you only get digital copies of your pictures, they can get lost pretty easily. If you keep them on your computer, you could lose them due to a computer issue or another type of technical glitch.
Maybe you had all the pictures put on a thumb drive or a disc. This might seem safe, but you could lose either one in a move or just during everyday life. Thumb drives are small and prone to errors. Discs can also get scratched, lost, or even broken.
2. Images Are Meant to be Shared
One of my fondest childhood memories is lying on the floor looking through my mom’s family photo albums. Not only did I get to see photos of my sister and me as babies, but I also got to meet family members that I never knew or didn’t remember. Sharing family photos albums is a great way to make sure that your family story is passed on to the next generation.
Sure, you can share your digital images with your kids. But unless you are super organized, finding them might be difficult, and flipping through images on your computer just isn’t the same.
3. Images Are Meant to be Seen
Displaying your best family pictures, newborn photos, or maternity shots means you need to have printed products. When’s the last time you went to someone’s home and they shared their digital images with you?
Your priceless family memories are meant to be seen. Whether it’s a framed print or a canvas or metal print, the most loved images are those that are seen every day.
And you might not know this little fact, but children that grow up in homes where family photos are displayed have higher self-esteem.
4. Better Quality
You might think you can just get digital copies and print off any pictures you want. While this is likely possible, most photographers have access to better printing services for your picture. Often your photographer will have their computer monitor calibrated to their professional lab which ensures the prints turn out amazing the first time, which isn’t always the case when you try to order them on your own.
With printed products, you won’t have to worry about losing digital copies of your pictures. You’ll be able to create an album, display your beautiful pictures, and enjoy them without needing to turn on a computer or another type of device. Leigh Ann Pincus Photography can help you turn your images into beautiful prints, wall art, and albums that you will treasure for years to come.
