I was recently inspired by a well-written blog post by one of my all-time favorite photographers, Heidi Hope. It wasn’t a “new topic” to my thoughts. I often think about how I choose to give digital files with my sessions & I feel like those discs sit at my client’s home, not printed & not shown. But now that I’ve been in the industry for 2.5 years and have sent at least 100 cd’s of images to clients, I wonder- are they REALLY seeing the value in their “final product”??? A disc can not be all we show for these new, beautiful memories!
I recently designed a wall collage of gallery wraps for a very sweet client of mine and I must say, I’m awe-stricken with how beautiful it turned out. Those images are now a work of art in her home, where they’re able to admire them on a daily basis. THAT’S what I want for my clients.
Heidi said it best here….
“With the rapid change in technology, the only way to preserve your photographs so that they can be enjoyed for generations is by producing something tangible out of them. What’s even greater, I can guarantee that you will be even happier with your investment in professional photography if you do so! No one ever calls to say how much they love their DVD. They call to say how much their friends raved about their greeting cards this year, or how their wall art makes them smile every time they walk by, or how their toddler daughter looks at her newborn album every day!”
With that said, February’s special is a FREE 16×20 Gallery Wrap with any booked session in the month of February! Something you can hang on your wall. And I will encourage you to purchase other products.. why? Because I would be doing you an injustice if I didn’t 🙂
