While it might seem like deciding what to do with your beautiful photos might be one of the hardest parts of the process, I think it’s actually one of the more enjoyable elements. Once your session is complete, you and I will schedule a time to come into my office, located in Mt. Airy, to view your photos for the first time together. I have lots of options that have been specifically curated for my clients’ wants and needs. Digital files are always a nice option to have, as it’s easy for everyone in your family to have access to them as well as contributing to your own personal digital archive. Even so, I like to encourage all of my families to think about adding at least 1-2 physical products so you will have something that you can see, feel, touch, and really enjoy on a daily basis. Prints, wall art, and albums are great additions to your family photo collection that can be passed down through generations. After all, if it brings you joy- you should see it as often as possible.
I never want you to feel lost when it comes to deciding what to do with your photos or feel that you have to figure everything out on your own. When you come in for your meeting, we’ll sit together and watch a slideshow of all your images on a nice big screen. I find that viewing your photos for the first time this way is the best way to see all the really beautiful details and soak in each photo. Once the slideshow ends and we’ve seen all your photos, I’ll then walk you through any and every archival option that is available to you.
Every product I offer is the most archival and beautiful option available. Over the years, I have hand-picked each product to ensure that it will last as long as possible throughout your family archive for generations. I like to put a lot of emphasis on each family’s own personal collection, as it’s one of the best ways to actively contribute to your family’s history. Building both a physical and digital archive consisting of your family photos will do just that. Everyone chooses to archive their photos in their own way- for some, it’s starting a collection of family albums that live on a shelf with easy access to enjoy, while for others it can mean creating a living gallery wall in their home (if you’re not sure what this means- ask me!), or having prints to gift to various family members.
Ultimately, I want you and your family to feel comfortable with what you end up choosing to do with your photos. My goal is to provide you with any guidance you need in figuring out what works best for you and your family. While we do try to get everything squared away in your meeting, you will also get a shareable online gallery for any additional purchases you need more time for as well as digital downloads. I never want you to leave with even more things on your to-do list so I am here to help as much as you need.
It should never require electricity to see a photo of someone you love.
Starting your family’s archive off with family photos is a great motivator to upkeeing your archive. Fill out my contact form to get started on booking your family session.
