I saw this on Facebook a while ago. I LOVE it. It’s true. And a conversation I had with my five year old in the car this afternoon confirmed it.
So anyway, we hung a few extra photos last weekend. Poor neglected photos that have been languishing in storage for a few years since we moved (oops!). Then today’s chat went like this:
Will (number one son, age 5) – “Mummy our house looks different now. With all the photos up.”
Me – “Yeah it does. Do you like it?”
Will (with feeling, and the slightest hint of a British accent) – “Yes, it’s BEAUTIFUL!”
This is exactly why I adore my job, and why I insist on every client walking away from their Gerty Photography portrait experience with at least one printed photo. Beautiful, professionally printed, high quality photos that are ready to be displayed and enjoyed straight away. No more effort from you, just smiles and delight.
We all have hundreds (if not thousands…) of gorgeous, happy every day moments captured on our own phones and cameras. But what happens if that phone is lost before being backed up? Or if most of those photos feature Weet-Bix stained dressing gowns? (Maybe that’s just me???)
Portrait sessions give you a special opportunity to invest in your future: put a bit of time aside; dress up a little; have a professional capture a slice of your family’s love and personality while you’re looking and feeling your best. And then enjoy those gorgeous images every day, for many years and even generations to come.
So please, don’t let your photos be buried and forgotten on a USB in your drawer. Print your photos. Share them with your kids, your family, and your friends. I promise you won’t regret it.
