Yesterday marked the first day of Fall, and here I am with loads of summer adventures ready to be sorted, and styled for my albums! This summer was filled with trips both locally and worldwide! From China, to Chicago, LA, Orlando, Atlanta and more. It was a summer filled with adventure that my family and I will absolutely treasure forever!
I LOVE posting, sharing, and blogging both my clients and my own images! Everyone has beautiful stories to tell, and well… I may be biased but my clients are kinda my favorite! 😉
(Especially these cuties here! lol) The fact that after sessions my clients can easily share their galleries, download them straight to their computers, and share them with their family and friends with a click of the button is invaluable. That is the beauty of digital. However, the other day I showed my Alijah an album of him and his baby brother….not online…but in PRINT! The look on his face was priceless. He was so excited he kept asking to see more, then more of his dad and I when we were younger, and then his baby pictures. It went on and on until I just gave him a few albums and boxes of pictures to look through. Picture after picture he kept flipping and it gave me the opportunity to share stories that I may have never thought to share with him. That to me was invaluable. I share all that to say, if you haven’t noticed yet, this year I made a big shift in my business to place the importance back to printed images and albums! I noticed that year after year my clients were loving their images, posting and sharing away but it was rarely making it off of their computers! So this year, every collection set has prints, and the option to include an album! I definitely have clients that I love walking into their home because I see love printed and life on every wall. But my hope is that EVERY client will begin to choose to print! My goal is that every year my family’s will have family year books! Albums of every year that they can sit down on New Years evening with hot cocoa, a plate of cookies, and share their sweet stories! Albums that will speak life in print, and live on for years after. I will never forget this summer and all the adventures we shared together! I’m excited to start working on my albums, and if nothing else I certainly hope this encourages you to start working on yours!
These images make my heart skip a beat. Summer 2016 was good to me, and these are priceless memories that I am so grateful to have captured for me, for them, and that I love to share with you! Xo
