I am a huge fan of printed albums of your memories and big milestones in your family. Personally, I get an album every year that we get our own family portraits taken. These are our family’s memories. Memories that are so important to preserve. I can’t help but get a little emotional when I think about the impact albums can have as a parent. So, I’ll just dive on in!
In our digital age, it’s become all too common to leave our cherished photos trapped in the digital abyss. But here’s the thing – there’s something truly magical about holding a physical album in your hands. It’s a tangible reminder of a moment in time, frozen forever. Moments of when your newest family member was brand new and oh so tiny.
- Time is a Thief: We’ve all heard it a million times, but it’s so true – babies grow up fast! That tiny bundle of joy you brought home from the hospital changes by the day. A printed album allows you to preserve those fleeting moments and savor them for years to come.
2. Storytelling: Albums are like storybooks, filled with the chapters of your family’s journey. As a newborn photographer, I’m not just snapping pictures; I’m creating a narrative. An heirloom album beautifully tells the story of those early days – the first yawns, the tiny toes, and those heart-melting smiles.
3. Connection: Holding a physical album fosters a deeper emotional connection vs. swiping through images on a screen. Sitting down together as a family and reliving those cherished moments. You can’t help but smile, laugh, and maybe even shed a tear or two. Everyone (especially kids!) loves to look through the pages of an album and relive the memories it holds.
4. Preservation: Digital files are vulnerable to technology changes, but printed photos stand the test of time. Remember those “disk of images”? Most computers don’t even have a place to insert a disk of any kind anymore. Technology is rapidly changing. Albums become family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation, ensuring your newborn’s legacy and family memories lives on.
5. Timeless: Albums are classic and stand the test of time. They will never go out of style. They make a great accent to the decor in your home and are perfect for your coffee table. Making it easily accessible to relive your family’s memories.
Albums are a gateway to reliving the most beautiful and emotional moments in a family’s life. In a world where everything moves at the speed of a click, let’s not forget the power of holding onto something real, printed portraits that stand the test of time. 💕
