So, you take lots of pics
If you are like me.. You have your iphone aimed at your kids ALL the TIME!
So what do you do with those images? You have about five billion of them, right?
Do you print them?
Lord help us... they are all in the "cloud"
And my phone always says... "iphone cannot be backed up...not enough storage..." Ugggghhhh.
It makes me sad to think about how many people never print photos or they print very few. You select the "good" ones. Then the phone dies. We don't print as much as we used to.
Our kids will have NOTHING to look at when they grown up! How sad! Remember looking through your old photos with your grandma? With your mom? What will you do with your digital files on your phone? On facebook? What if facebook dies? Will you still have your photos somewhere? I already have disks that cannot be read by my computer... what are you going to do when you can't read the disk? It will happen. The files will be corrupt eventually. GET THEM ON PAPER!!!
Okay. So here's what you do:
Print them. Duh Cindy... LOL
Yeah... but where? So, there is a company I send my iphone pics to so I can wrap them all up in one place and laugh and cry at them when I wish. (you do it too) They are not glamorous photos. They are grainy and many are terribly out of focus... But they are part of our family history.
So, I send mine to blurb.
Blurb.com is a book company. You can make your book through their software or design it in Lightroom if you happen to have that software. I like blurb. They are great for my iphone photos. Check them out and get your photos off of your iphone!!
There are a ton of companies you could use I am sure. But I like to dump a ton of these hideous little photos in a book and this one allows me to do that. The main thing to take away.. just print them. Keep them on the only safe medium available... the tangible product.
Hook your little usb thingy to your phone and your pic folder will just magically appear.. send the blurb people to that folder and you are good to go yo!
Your disk will fail.
Important info for fall sessions:
In case you are thinking about fall photos... I am currently extremely full in October. I will only take 1-2 more sessions for October. I do still have a few available spots in September and November. Crazy!! I know! But art is fabulous in the fall!
Oh.. and a cool little light show. My boys like to draw with flashlights for me...
Love all my peeps.
