We moved from Atlanta to South Georgia when our kids were 7, 5, and 2. I remember how full my arms were, how busy life felt, and how long the days were. I loved (and still love!) being home with my babies and was constantly told how fast these years would go by. Can I tell you something? I DIDN'T BELIEVE IT.
Fast forward a decade and I am standing at the precipice of sending my oldest off to college. WHAT?! It truly did happen in the blink of an eye. The old saying, "the days are long but the years are short" is stabbing me in the heart every day.
All of this to say, investing in portraits--whether annually or once every few years--MATTERS. Displaying your portraits matters too. Photos have a way of bringing us together, reminding us of the best moments together. For me, that portrait hanging on the wall creates a warm, joyful feeling every time I stop to linger on it. In times of pain, photos bring healing and comfort. And did you know...simply having printed photographs hanging on the walls of your home can increase self-esteem? They send a message--your family is important and your moments together are cherished.
We do live in a digital age. I know that. You can take one look at my phone and see that I have hundreds of thousands of snapshots stored there. But did you know that digital does not mean archival? Technology is amazing and wonderful and useful, but you CAN lose precious photos if digital is your only means of retrieval. Tangible, printed artwork of your family is the only way to ensure you have a product that will stand the test of time.
Not a fan of huge photos on the wall? Not a problem! I've sourced a variety of heirloom quality products printed and constructed at professional photo labs in all shapes and sizes. Keepsake boxes and albums are perfect options for those with little wall space.
Your session with me is about so much more than snagging a snapshot--it's about creating and investing in a timeless work of art featuring those most precious to you. To start the process, fill out the contact form on the website and let's get planning! I can't wait to make some magic with you.
