The Importance of Prints, Digital is Not Forever – Carlee Secor Photography

One of my favorite things to do, still to this day, is to go through old photo albums and prints of my family and me when I was growing up. Ask anyone, looking through your childhood photo albums is a trip down memory lane, and most likely you are smiling the entire time. I’m lucky enough to have a few scrapbooks based on ME alone because I may or may not have had a mother that was obsessed with scrapbooking.

Through photography and prints, I learned about myself, the day I got my first haircut, and a picture to show how upset I was. I learned about my family, and how they looked, I saw my beautiful grandmother who passed away when my father was nine, all because of the power of print. Had my family decided that printing images were invaluable to them, I would not know how my grandma looks simply because the technology wasn’t there. I learned about my first bedroom and the layout of my first home, that I can no longer recall. I was able to bring in childhood pictures to my elementary school class when I was “Student of The Week.” I remember searching to find images that would showcase me for the school bulletin board.

I’m sharing with you this image from another photographer, that truly says a thousand words. A print is so valuable to this ever changing world we live in.

Being surrounded by so much technology in our everyday lives, we often forget to document important memories. I stress the importance of prints only because I understand the value it will hold in 20 years.

  • Because prints will withstand ANY technology shift
  • Because your family will grow old
  • Because a single print holds memories and comfort
  • Because the place to save money is not in the most important purchases
  • Because SO much time and energy is put into your portraits to not show it off!
  • Because photography is best enjoyed in print
  • Because thumb drives in drawers will stay thumb drives in drawers
  • Because showing your children your family photo albums will be a memory in itself
  • Because prints will last for generations to come

Contact me about the prints and products I offer, and how we can turn your thumb drive into something beautiful.

Enjoy a few of my favorite images. I am so thankful I have such a valuable piece of my past.
