A few months ago I was devastated when an external hard drive crashed and I lost a lot of valuable photographs. I’ll spare you the long story, but the stress it caused has inspired me to remind everyone around me the importance of allowing your photograph to live outside of our digital world.
With the holidays around the corner, it’s the perfect time to take a moment, get on your mobile (or desktop) and create that album from your family road trip or enlarge your favorite photo and frame it. If you’re looking for something timeless, I offer a range of flush-mount albums and high quality canvas prints. However if you’re looking for quick and hassle-free products, there’s plenty to choose from. Some are as easy as downloading an app and with a few clicks, you'll be on your way to having a purty little album arriving at your front door.
Below are some of my favorites I’ve seen over the past year.
~ Enjoy! And happy printing!
p.s. Don’t forget - this time of year many companies offer “Buy one, get one” or discounts on credits purchased - it’s a great idea to stock up on a few items to use throughout the year.
