Is low resolution holding you back?

Low resolution photos holding you back from creating the album your family will treasure?

Frequently I hear the comment, ”I can’t use the photos I have in an album because they aren’t high resolution”.  Maybe you took them with your phone or maybe they were from the pre-digital age & were scanned.  I’m currently working on an album with photos from the 1950’s and as you may suspect, they are low resolution.

So let me say it now, don’t leave these memories behind just because they might be low resolution! The oldest photos can be the most precious and worth saving.  When you find a shoebox full of your grandparent’s photos in the attic, you don’t think how faded they are.  You are transported to a time when they were young and all the stories you have heard come to life with a window back to that time.

See my album page? One photo is low res and one is blurry, but it is the memory and the connection to dad that I won’t let be forgotten.  It is why I am in the business of preserving these little moments . .. and making big memories.

Another reason print matters.

Busy?

Yes, your time is precious.  Meeting my clients. . .on their schedule, in their neighborhood.   Because if YOU had the time you would already have a beautiful memorable keepsake album to pass on to your kids.

Taking that big time-consuming project off your To-Do List, or Wish List, is my job.

What’s on your cover?

Acrylic album-covers look like glass. They give your wedding or travel album a beautiful crystal clear sharp touch. It will add a sleek and modern addition to your coffee table and they are made to last 100 years (or more).  A true keepsake. . .

What photos are you passing on to your kids?

Julia Nix-16Look. I get it. Our generation is taking more photos than any other generation before. So many photos. Thousands and thousands of photos. And we keep taking more making the so-called problem even bigger and bigger.  I am with you on this, I have thousands of photos that I store and manage. My goal is to get your photos to live as they were intended – wonderful memories you can hold on to.

We’re taking photos. And that is a step ahead of the generation before us. We have the tools to photograph the stories of our lives and we are doing that. So let’s give ourselves a break. We have enough to overwhelm and guilt us. Our photos shouldn’t add to that.  They should make us feel joy.

Keep taking photos and enjoy the process.  Remember why you are taking them in the first place. Cut yourself some slack and get rid of the guilt. Have fun capturing those moments.

Deep breath. Now take that first step. Let’s meet to find out what those could look like when I put them all together in print.

Your kids will thank you someday. Maybe even sooner than you thought.
