The Power of Framed Portraits in a Digital Age

As a photographer, one of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is the moment when I get to deliver the final product to my clients. From the initial consultation to the photoshoot itself, every step of the process is filled with excitement and anticipation. But it's the the delivery of the framed portraits that truly brings everything full circle.

I'm obsessed with all the details that go into creating gorgeous wall portraits for my clients. From selecting the perfect images to meticulously choosing the right frame and matting, every decision is made with careful consideration and attention to detail. I want my clients to not only love their portraits but also cherish them as timeless pieces of art that adorn their walls for years to come.

What sets my approach apart is my unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship. I believe that the true beauty of a photograph is best realized when it's presented in tangible form—something that can be held, admired, and passed down through generations. That's why I spare no effort in ensuring that each framed portrait is a masterpiece in its own right.

But my dedication to delivering physical products goes beyond mere aesthetics. In today's digital age, we're inundated with an endless stream of digital photos—stored on our phones, computers, and in the cloud. While digital images offer convenience and accessibility, they lack the tangible presence and emotional impact of a physical print.

I've even printed and framed portraits from clients using digitals created by previous photographers. While I'm happy to provide this service, I always encourage my clients to consider the long-term implications of relying solely on digital formats. After all, digital photos can easily get lost or forgotten amidst the clutter of our digital devices.

If you're like me, the sheer volume of digital photos can quickly become overwhelming. They pile up on our phones, clutter our computers, and get lost in the depths of the cloud. But the problem is that your family can't truly enjoy them in these formats. You certainly won't be able to pass them on to your kids in these digital forms.

Imagine if instead of a family album, all you had from your own childhood was a box of floppy disks? It's a sobering thought—one that highlights the importance of preserving memories in physical form.

That's why I'm a firm believer in the power of printed photographs. There's something magical about holding a framed portrait in your hands—feeling the weight of the paper, tracing the contours of the frame, and admiring the beauty of the image captured within.

Your best bet is to get back to a physical product for anything you want your family to be able to enjoy. For my clients' sessions with me, that means custom albums and wall portraits framed to perfection.
