Stuck in a drawer or out on display?
We’re probably all guilty of having packets of printed photographs in drawers which were taken before the convenience of taking photos on our mobile phones. And what about the photos on our laptops, USB sticks, DVDs (yes, remember them?) and those sat on a cloud storage somewhere out in cyberspace.
It’s a wonderful thing having your family photographs out on display, this is where they belong, this is their purpose. Keeping your photographs out of sight is keeping them, and their memories, out of mind.
I want you to love your professionally taken photographs. It is my wish that you place them somewhere in your home where you can enjoy them every day. And as time passes, these photographs will become even more important and treasured. It does make me feel a little sad when clients ask for their photos on a stick saying they’ll get round to getting them printed sometime soon.
From experience the ‘sometime soon’ never happens. And if they do, they buy a cheap frame that does nothing to enhance the photographs. Worse still, the frame may even start to bow after a few months.
