Why you should print your photos


January 3, 2024

I’m a huge believer in printing your photos. But why? Let me tell you a story

My grandpa, “Pap-pap” to us, passed away unexpectedly in 2014. In the days that followed my family spent a lot of time together with my grandma and at their house. I specifically remember sitting in my grandparents’ living room for hours going through photos. Some from when I was a baby, but so many from even before my parents were born. Photos of my grandparents as teenagers. My grandpa’s military photos. Their wedding photos.

As tough a time that was (and I’m tearing up writing this), when I look back on the moment I only remember my family coming together. Sitting around laughing, crying, passing down memories. Most importantly, the comfort it brought us.

I share this story because I think it is so important. The perfect reminder as to why you should print your photos. Digital photos are great but there’s nothing like holding a physical print in your hands.

Imagine it is fifteen years from now, you’re sitting in your living room showing your own kids photos from your childhood. The stories that will be shared. The laughs from the style that was the early 2000’s. Silly photos from when you and your now husband first met. The love shared from your wedding photos. Pictures of your kids the day they were born. It’s honestly priceless.

So whether you invest in heirloom quality, archival prints or not, I implore you to print your photos.
