Making Memories Last A Lifetime

The way we take photographs has changed a lot over the last few years. I think it’s fair to say that we live in a digital age and everything little thing we do is shared to social media from the little things in life to the big things. In some ways this is great especially if like us your family and friends live far away. They can keep up with everything that is going on in our lives and vice versa. It can also be a hindrance though. For me it has meant that I don’t text or ring people as often as I once did, and I don’t take as many photos as I used to either.

I don’t know about you but when I was a child / teenager I used to have a camera that I took on holidays, on school trips and on nights out. I used to snap away not knowing how great the pictures would be until the film was developed once it had all been used up. It used to cost my parents a small fortune to print out the photos (any many of them were rubbish pictures including some that were over exposed or had my finger covering the lens) I have boxes and boxes of prints from my younger years, and I love to reminisce occasionally about my school days and carefree teenager life.

Technology has advanced a lot and so many people are now taking photos on their devices or a digital camera. This also means that everyone including myself are taking better photos and any that are rubbish can simply be deleted. Most of my images are either shared online or stored. I don’t know about you but most of the photos I have taken in the past five years are stored digitally too. They’re either on my phone, iPad, pc or in the cloud.

I share the photographs we’ve taken with everyone we know (or in some cases to the entire world on public social media platforms) but that is where they stay, I very rarely print them off. In fact, my house has very few photos on the wall -even my wedding pictures other than two that I printed at home are on my computer or phone. I do intend to print more photos off though and even if they are not on display to have them in an album so that I have them to look at whenever I want.

You could use snappy snaps photo printing to print off your favourite images, create canvas prints and much more to ensure that your memories last a lifetime.

Having printed copies of your photos is a great way to keep your memories fresh, they also make lovely gifts for wedding anniversaries, birthdays and Christmas presents for members of your family. This Christmas I am having coasters, mugs and even some personalised socks made for our family and friends.

Are you planning to print out some of your photographs soon?
