When we welcomed our 1st baby boy into our family, we hired a professional photographer to document the joy-filled homecoming. At home were three little sisters who had been eagerly waiting for that first time they'd be able to hold their first baby brother! I wanted to bottle up these beautiful, fleeting moments that I know I wouldn't remember as long as I'd hope to. Enter photography. Photography is an incredible gift that allows us to capture these memories to look back on time and time again, flooding our hearts with all the emotions we felt during that time in our lives.
My husband and I were in love with all the photos we received in our gallery and immediately downloaded all of them. I went online to start planning out which images I'd print and hang on our walls. I wandered into the Photo Album section and knew right away that we needed one.
I designed the perfect album, placed my order and practically sat by the door, waiting for it to come in the mail (ok, not exactly, but I did keep peering out the window and tracking the package!). When I opened the box, I was so impressed with the beauty and quality of this book! Most of all, I was so grateful to have the entire story of our session bound in a beautiful heirloom album.
In our digital age, it's no wonder everyone wants to own the high-resolution files from their session (myself included!) and it's why I offer simple packages to my clients, including printing rights to ALL their photos. However, I'm over-the-moon-excitied to now be offering Signature Storybook Albums as a very special add-on!
These books are a must-have and here are 5 reasons why:
1. Storybook Albums capture the whole story.
It is so important to fill your walls with beautiful memories by ordering prints and canvases of session photos, but there are SO many moments that you just can't hang them all. An album allows you to be able to have the entire story of your session, and all those special, little in-between moments bound all together.
2. You can hold it in your hands.
Sure, you can pass your phone around and digitally share images with all your friends and family, but it's just not the same as holding a physical album in your hands. More than ever, in this digital age, having something tangible to touch & feel is a special experience.
3. Technology changes quickly.
Years from now, when your hard-drive dies and technology changes, you won't be worrying about how to update or transfer anything because you'll have all your priceless memories bound in a beautiful, timeless album.
4. Photo albums are one of the greatest gifts you can give your family.
An album is an incredible gift for yourself and I often pull my albums off the shelf to look through during the quiet of the morning, feeling all those moments of love, joy & connection. I need that so badly sometimes! Albums are also an incredible gift to every single person in your family for the same reasons.
5. Heirlooms are priceless.
I very intentionally chose to offer an album that can be affordable from year-to-year for family sessions, but also high-quality enough to be a gorgeous heirloom for generations to come. Pricing starts at $150 for an 8x8", 20-page, linen-wrapped album with a custom, matte-gold or matte-silver title.
