Photo Albums Growing Up
I grew up in a family littered with photo albums. Maybe you remember the ones I'm talking about, those cardboard covered albums with the peel and stick pages. The photos used to stick under the clear peel back plastic to some tacky board. My mom and dad still have quite a few of these in their book shelf, though in recent years since the birth of our daughter they have upgraded to the 4x6 slip in style albums.
My parent have VOLUMES of albums from the day Sophia was born to the ones we emailed them yesterday. See my parents are not on Facebook and do not have smartphones so they print EVERY SINGLE PHOTO!

When they first started doing this I thought they were nuts but I quickly realized how awesome it was. This is exactly how I remember my childhood and how I remember getting a glimpse into my past and my families history. I now get to see Sophia walk down memory lane every time she goes to grandma and grandpa's house. We just love hearing her say, "That's me, or that's mommy and daddy when they were little".
How Long Will Digital Last?
As photographers we get that we are in the digital age but we are concerned that future generations may never get to enjoy or appreciate this look into the past. Many people are keeping photos on their phones, computers, cd's, and flash drives and they never get PRINTED. This is a scary situation. Why you might ask, well just 7 years ago this became obsolete.......
When in the last time you purchased a computer that came with one of these in it?
So what do we phase out next? Flash drives? Computer Hard Drives? Will everything eventually just go to the cloud? The point is, it's hard to delete a framed wall portrait or an Album. Plus how likely are you to invite people over to your house and sit them down in front of your computer or hand them your phone and flip through your family history?
This is why Sara and I are so passionate about including albums in all our wedding collections and ensuring our clients have access to high quality wall art to tell their stories and preserve their memories. Selecting a wedding photographer today should be much more than finding someone to take great photos on your wedding day. Make sure you find a photographer that can tell and PRESERVE your story for future generations to enjoy your legacy! Not all albums are created equal and your memories deserve more than cheap DIY online template servcies can deliver.
