This is yesterday’s post in the RI Blogger and we are so grateful to our friends over there for sharing our love for photography design!
We are living in the age of everything digital. It is incredible to be able to share our lives through words and images on social media, our thoughts and messages with our friends, family and colleagues by texting, and Google whatever we need to know. The ability to communicate in so many different and creative ways is convenient and fun. We can now take photographs with our phones and tablets at our fingertips, but it seems more and more I’m hearing stories that these images are disappearing because the device stops working or is lost. My husband recently lost almost two years worth of photographs on his phone…losing those memories forever. This breaks my heart. I have many friends who love taking photographs with their digital cameras, but don’t ever download them on their computers. Some people do manage to download them onto the computer, but then the dreaded computer hard drive crashes, and the images are lost if they’re not backed up somewhere. Ouch. Of course, there are always the super organized people who are good about downloading, making books and photo albums and that makes me do a happy dance! But let’s face it, the bottom line is that most of us are just too busy. Even though we have the best intentions it is difficult to complete the process from start to finish. Unfortunately, in the digital age it is becoming increasingly rare for people to have quality printed photographs, so how will you remember?
Enter custom photography design. Those of us who enjoy having peace of mind when creating our family’s visual legacy desire customized fine art portraits to compliment our lifestyle and decorate our walls. This requires a level of time commitment and budget for the process of customized portrait design. What is more important, this is the best decision you can ever make to record your personal family history. You can feel complete confidence that your memories are in good hands. You can relax and enjoy the present moment knowing that your photographer will document your memories and preserve them in a way that makes sense for you and your family. Some opt for this to be a once a year special experience and some choose to have custom photography sessions to record special milestones in life. These photo sessions are designed and well thought out by the client and the photographer. A custom portrait artist is involved in every aspect of the process from clothing selection, stylization and emotional feel, all while emphasizing the client’s home decor. Because of this expectation of quality and excellence, each portrait is truly a treasure and a unique piece of distinctive fine art. Heirloom portraits are designed to stand the test of time, will not fade and have a timeless quality and style.
Custom portrait design is fine furniture for your walls. It is where the intangibles make the experience truly extraordinary and the fleeting moments within those images make the investment worthwhile. The luxury lies in remarkable service, better choices and a superior end product. Your final images are the result of someone caring about those moments so much that they take the extra time, care and love making sure the artwork you receive is good enough to stand by with their name on it. That level of commitment is lost in the age of mass produced, and mass marketed digital images on mobile devices and digital images sold on discs. The portrait work you become invested in from your professional photographer will without a doubt increase in value and become more priceless as years go by.
When you finish a beautiful room with family portraits, design is often difficult. While every family wants captivating images of their loved ones in their home, portraits often don’t compliment the space. When a photographer specializes in family artwork as home decor and works with you to customize every piece for the space in which it will be displayed, you magically warm up your home and complete the design with your own family artwork. A visual display of what matters most in life.
The photographic art that is produced as a result of the dedication from your custom portrait photographer will be cherished now and for generations to come. It is more than just hiring the most economical choice. It is an intimate relationship. Great thought and consideration should be placed into hiring who is right for your family’s most precious investment.
This is your story.
Every time you walk by your photographs, you will linger and sigh and be reminded of a time gone by.
Do it for your heart…for your home…forever.
You’ll be happy that you did.
