Do you have a ton of digital portraits sitting around on your computer or in your phone? I'm almost positive that you do! We all have portraits that we take on our phone or from professional photographers that we are SO excited about. But what do you do once you have those digital images? If you're like most people, they sit in that folder on your computer or on that USB and soon get forgotten about, because we have 8 million other things on our plates and printing out portraits just keeps falling down the never ending to-do list. I'm here to tell you why you should print your portraits today! At Fluttering Shutter Photography, the overwhelming majority of my clients purchase product collections that include gorgeous heirloom products. Why? Because printing your portraits gives them the chance to become beautiful artwork for your home that can been seen and appreciated by your family and friends. Still not convinced? Here are 5 more reasons to print those beautiful portraits:
1) Your children will not look like this forever and neither will you!
How often have you had portraits done, gotten the digitals and then did nothing with them because, again, that to-do list is never ending? Then, you finally make time to print them out, but they're already outdated! It happens to all of us! Having your portraits professionally printed by your photographer at the time of your session makes it so that you have portraits ready to be displayed as soon as possible!
2) Blank walls beg to be decorated!
You know that spot in your house that has empty wall space? A beautiful portrait of your family would be the perfect addition to that blank space, making it warmer and more inviting!
3) Your office space could do with a family portrait or two!
We all have those days where all we want to do is snuggle with our loves instead of working. Having a portrait of them close by can make your day a little brighter until you can get home to them.
4) Displaying family portraits promotes a sense of belonging.
When kids see themselves up on the wall with their family, they feel a sense of comfort and group cohesion. It helps to show them their people and who they can rely on.
5) Social media platforms are not forever.
Anyone remember MySpace? Although we love to share our portraits on social media with our friends and family, the internet and social media is constantly changing. Printing your portraits is a permanent way to show them off.
The bottom line is that your portraits deserve to be printed and displayed in your home. As parents, we often have to-do lists that are a million miles long and printing our portraits just doesn't rank in high priority, so why not let a professional handle it? At Fluttering Shutter Photography, I will deliver you beautiful, heirloom quality printed products that are ready for display. Want to know more about the products that I offer?
