The Importance of Printing Your Photos

Our world today is digital, and the importance of printing your photos is being lost. Everything we do is online, and though we are taking more photos nowadays we are printing far less photos than ever before. If we continue this trend, two generations from now will not know we existed… 

Be honest: How many times have you taken photos on your phone and forgotten about them until you were scrolling through your images later? Or have you even had professional photos taken and put on a flash drive or disc, only to never print them?

If either of these things has happened to you, you’re definitely not alone. Digital images are incredibly convenient, but they’re also easy to forget about or lose. Even if you upload photos to social media, you may forget entirely that they’re there until someone likes or comments on them.

I was the same way. And then I saw the documentary, “The Power of Print,” in which Andrew travels 5000+ miles to the south of France to take a similar photo he found of his great great uncle that was over 100 years old. Without the printed photo, he stressed that future generations will not know we existed. 

Your grandchildren will not know you existed. Let that sink in for a minute…

Psychologists have found that holding a printed photo actually has the power to improve a person’s mood. By reminding ourselves of positive times with people we love, we can reflect on who we are and how far we’ve come and remember what we value most in life: our relationships.  

While having images stored on our phones and computers gives us easy access to memories, when we don’t print our photos, we deprive ourselves and our children of the opportunity to enjoy memories. 

By creating a photo album or hanging prints on the wall, you’re not only giving yourself a chance to remember memories, you’re also providing your children—and one day grandchildren—a chance to look back at days they don’t remember. Think of the future and how valuable printed photos will be not only to you and your family, but to the generations yet to come.

I photography your celebrations with this in mind. I want your future kids and grandkids to view the images as if they were there.
