Jessica Jane Photography will be making changes to Collections next year to include more products. Here’s the thing, no one does anything with the digital files. A jpeg isn’t handed down to your children or grandchildren. You take the time and effort to invest in professional imagery and often your usb is left in a draw with good intentions of printing them but life get’s busy! You may not realise it, but I believe offering only digital files is a disservice to you.
One of the first questions people ask when looking for a photographer is if they offer all the digital images from their session. In fact, many parents plan to only purchase the digital images and aren’t interested in anything else.
By only purchasing the digital images, you’re putting yourself at a huge risk of losing your photos in just a few short years.
Many well-intentioned couples who only get the digital images never print their images at all, or only print a few for gifts or for display. Even we’re guilty of having a hard-drive full of photos of my kids and family that we simply haven’t taken the time to order prints of yet.
However, there’s a huge risk of losing the images and memories from them over time when you only have the digital files.
With digital files, you are responsible for transferring the images from one type of digital media to another as technology advances every few years. Every time a file is transferred, there’s a risk of file corruption. Not only that, but if life gets crazy and you fail to transfer it to the new media, you may end up with a beautiful disc/flash
drive/etc of photos that you can’t see anymore because there’s no machine around to use the disc/flash drive/etc with.
This is why we believe that a professional album is of the utmost importance. Even if you never do anything except store it in a closet, you’ll still have images to look at and enjoy years from now with no additional work whatsoever. I remember going through photo albums with mum and dad as a kid and I loved sharing the memories with my family. It has long been acknowledged that family photos on display in a home help boost a child’s sense of identity and create a sense of belonging.
Each time your child walks by a family photo on the wall, which is countless times each day, a message is sent – “You, my dear child, are important. You matter. You have a special place in this world. You are a part of this thing we call family and we love you”.
In fact, we believe in this so strongly that we include an album in most of our packages we offer.
We only offer professional, high-quality albums made with archival inks and papers that are created to last for generations with proper care.
Don’t risk losing your memories. Make a beautiful album one of your priorities. We promise you will not regret it.
