digital files vs. artwork….
Personally, I love both. That’s right, BOTH are important.
But here’s the thing; the artwork is where it’s at.
And not for today.
Not for the day I hand you your beautiful album, or the day you hang your canvases on your walls.
That’s right…it’s for the other days. The days that are rough to be a mother. The days that turn into years and your baby doesn’t look like that little newborn anymore, but is a toddler racing around your home. The days where you don’t even remember that teeny tiny gummy smile when she was 6 months old because she’s got a mouth full of teeth now. Those are the times you need to flip through your album and remember. You need to touch that tangible heirloom album and feel that tiny baby again. Even the day your’re rocking your 3 month old to sleep, and amongst the crying and whining you can look up and see a sweet, sleeping newborn angel around the walls of that very nursery you’re rocking in for the 10th time that day.
You can’t run to your computer or Facebook and pull up your files to remember, and really even if you do, where is the beauty in that? You deserve more; you deserve artwork around your home to remind you of their newness, of their short time crawling, of that sweet head on your shoulder snuggling in your neck. And in 10 years when your babies are grown and running around wanting nothing to do with you? You’ll cherish those albums and wall art even more because your heart will remember through those images and feel that little tiny baby again.
Digital files have their place, they really do. I would personally never hire a photographer who didn’t offer those, so I’m proud to gift them to my clients along with their artwork. I also completely understand that some of my clients love to make their own artwork. That’s okay, too! I include a few prints even with just the files as well. Nothing leaves my studio without a tangible memory in your hands.
