Why Photo Books Work Well For Documentary Family And Newborn Pictures

Most clients that inquire with me tell me that they only want the digital files. But you know what happens when we only have digital files? They stay digital. Eventually they get lost amongst thousands, get accidentally deleted, or vanish when your hard drive fails. How do I know this? Not three days ago me and a client laughed about how we’ve both been married for a few years and haven’t gotten anything printed from the wedding, because we opted for digitals only.

Life just gets in the way.

I worry that the current generation of kids won’t know how it feels to touch and flip through albums. Do you remember what it was like? Isn’t it glorious to look through albums from when you were a child? I’m fairly sure that your iPhone photos from today aren’t going to live on your toddler daughter’s phone when she’s 14. And where will they be when she’s all grown up?

I’m getting more and more convinced that one of the best ways to showcase and preserve documentary family and newborn pictures is photo albums. I can build stories from start to finish to tell the story of your day, your little slice of life.

So – ask your photographer make your pictures into a book! You won’t regret it.

Now, let’s flip through this fun beach day session together:
