Here is a little about why I do things the way I do.
1. Portrait photography is about connection, and I love to connect with people. This is why I no longer file share online... there is no personality or connection in that. I want to see your face, and your smile, when you receive your products.
2. I know for a fact that the majority of people are unlikely to get around to printing photos. How many of you have paid for professional photos, and they are still sitting on a disk or usb somewhere? This is why I have moved away from handing over lonely digital copies and I now sell printed and finished products. They are ready to hang on your wall. I will turn up at your house with a big present (yes, all wrapped and pretty), just so I can hope you faint from excitement. (Lol). I will then offer to mount it all on your walls for you. For me this is the cream of the crop service... that everyone gets!
3. I am absolutely passionate about preserving memories. The safest way to preserve photos is in print. Electronic devices notoriously crash… along with your precious memories. How many of you have photos of ancestors? Yes its true, after 100 years those photos are looking a little shabby and old, BUT they are still here! In 100 years I highly doubt we will even have a device that can read a CD or USB. They will be in the same piles as VCRs. Leave something tangible for future generation to enjoy, I can guarantee they will be curious about you and want to see you in photos. In the meantime enjoy your portraits hanging on your walls!
