The heart behind why i offer printed photos vs. only the digitals
One question I get asked often is “Why don’t I just give the couple the digitals from their wedding day or their engagement or anniversary sessions?”.
So I wanted to share my heart with you behind WHY I only offer printed photos to each of my KIP Couples vs. just giving them the digitals and calling it a day.
The Story Behind Why I Offer Printed Photos
One thing that REALLY really bothered me growing up in my families home in Minnesota was that we didn’t have ANY printed photos hanging in our home. Not even small framed photos that would sit on the tabletops or shelves. None.
I always wondered why our photos would get printed and then just sit in a box in my parents closet. I could never understand why we didn’t fill our walls with them instead!
As I was growing up I’d spend time with my friends in their homes and I had always loved seeing all of the beautiful printed photos they had displayed in their home! One of my favorite things to do while I was there would be to ask the family about each individual photo and the memory behind it!
I loved knowing the stories of their life and seeing the pieces of their lives that made them into who they are today!
The Promise I Made To Myself
Knowing the importance of everyones memories and of surrounding ourselves with them, I made a promise! A promise to myself and to all of my KIP Couples. A promise that I will work hard to fulfill until the day that I die.
I made a promise that I would NEVER leave our walls bare of our photos or memories and that I would instead FILL our walls with them! I wanted my house to feel like a home and I wanted to surround myself with the memories of our lives that brought us so much joy!
I wanted my home to tell the story of our lives to all who visited and for them to see how important displaying memories in our homes is!!!
I also made a promise to myself, that NO MATTER WHAT, my husband and I would get yearly Anniversary Photos done because our memories together are one of the MOST important things to me! I want to be able to look back when we’re 80 years old and be able see the beautiful life we lived + all the beautiful memories that go along with them!
Above is a photo from our very own home!!! I’m very happy to say that I have been fulfilling that promise and I absolutely LOVE being surrounded by our memories together! Since I made this promise I have also been helping my mom fill her home with photos of our entire family as well!!!
The Promise I Made To ALL Of My KIP Couples
The promise I made to ALL of my KIP Couples is to make sure that they would never go through the same thing I went through when I was growing up as a little girl.
A promise that I will help them fill their homes with the beautiful photos and memories that we captured together and they’ll never have to struggle with wondering how to do it!
A promise that they’re beautiful memories will never be stuck on a computer or in a drawer, never to be printed or loved, which I too often see happen.
A promise that I will be there to help them design custom wall pieces and albums with their favorite memories that bring them so much joy!
A promise that I will help them make sure that their printed photos will be enjoyed for years to come and for future generations to know their life story!
I don’t take this promise lightly! This promise is what my entire business evolves around!
If this really resonates with you and really speaks to your heart too, I’d absolutely LOVE to connect!!! My heart will always be in telling the stories of your life, making sure that you’re surrounded by them, and to bring as much joy to you daily lives as I can!!!
