So we have had a great session and you are looking through your gallery. What do you order? I myself find it hard culling your images, thinking which cute facial expression means the most to the parents or which image captures the most emotion for you. I don’t want you to have to decide either so that is why I offer a special price for ordering your entire gallery – I know we live in a digital era and everyone wants to keep their digital files. These can be found on the pricing page.
However, I think most people are not aware that digital files will corrupt over a decade or so and therefore need constant backing up. A photograph or any other archivally reproduced product will last for at least 75 years, most often many more, and live on from generation to generation (only if professionally printed, your 9c print labs do not use archival materials). Years from now we can always reproduce an image from a printed product but we can’t print a photo from a corrupted digital file.
I do get saddened knowing that some of these amazing images of you and your family may never end up in print. You have commissioned me as a professional to capture this moment in time that we spent together. What would make me the happiest is knowing you order some form of printed product from your session. I encourage this because I honestly believe that if you spend money on a professional photographer to capture your loved ones, the art created deserves to also be printed by a professional. Trust me, your images look much nicer printed and displayed in your home rather than sitting in a drawer on a USB.
