One of the main reasons I started my business is because I loved growing up and looking through albums and photographs of my parents and learning all about their lives before me, while I was little and even now. It’s something I still even like doing.
This is something known as memory keeping. It’s the physical products from your session or event to share with someone later on. This could include framed photos, albums, canvases, metal prints, and so many other things.I wanted to explain why this practice is so important.
It’s a hard copy.
It is something you can physically hold. I know that it may seem like it’s taking up space, but you are doing the exact same thing on social media. The only difference is that these photos will reappear more often than the ones you post on the internet. You can fill your home with these. They can hang on your walls, coffee tables, bookshelves and much more.
You can pass this along to generations to come.
Have you ever gone through your grandparents photos, or maybe even your great-grandparents? It’s crazy to see how much has changed or even being able to see them as they were at our age. I even love seeing photos of my grandmother, who I have never got the chance to meet. It’s crazy to see the similarities I have with different parts of my family. With my nephew, I hope to get to do this with him. I want to show him all the photos of his aunts and his mom growing up.
It is a part of your history.
This is your story. The photos, the videos, the posts you write, are all about you. They are what makes you, you. These are things that would make your book or your movie. It documents a time in your life. It brings back memories and even shares your history with others. My boyfriend loves showing me my embarrassing photos that my parents have in my house, but he says “It’s you though".”
It’s so important to keep up this practice so many people can have the same experience that I have had and that I hope you have too. It’s the one thing I am really excited about to have. When I started my business I knew that I wanted to make sure that people would get the chance to do this.
