Why Prints Matter - Ways to Preserve & Display Your Photos

Do you remember the feeling of flipping through an old book of childhood memories? The nostalgia it brings as your grin widens with each photo you hold? You can't do that with Instagram or Facebook. You can’t pass on your Facebook post to great grandchildren in 50 years, that's just silly. First off, who knows where social media will take us even in the next 10 years, and secondly, it's just not as meaningful scrolling on a device (if you'll still even have that same device) compared to holding the images physically in your hands.

We know prints will stand the test of time but, no one knows how long or if digitals will... Look at how fast technology is changing already. Zip drives or even CDs were all the rage and are now scarce. Physical prints are the one thing technology hasn’t changed. And they're easily accessible. You shouldn't need electricity to view the highlights and special moments in your life.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to display your photos, each of them available to you after your portrait session. Check back for future blogs that will dive further into each product or have a look at The Artwork offered through us at your design and ordering appointment.

Kelowna Maternity and Newborn Photographer


If you have a lot of images and can't narrow it down to what you can count on one hand, this is the option for you. It can hold as little as 20 images, or can include your whole gallery.

Image Box

The second best option for when you can't narrow down a lot of photos. Choose from

10-20 matted images, stored in a luxurious

soft touch box that includes a USB.

West Kelowna Family Photographer

Canvas Wall Art

A favorite option among those looking to hang their photos, canvas prints are wrapped around a 1-2" wood frame. If you really want to go for a polish look, consider framing the canvas.
