Digital Options - Vancouver Portrait Studio

This is a question that usually comes up at some point, either during our initial phone conversation or during our consultation.

And it makes sense, digital images are super important in today's world. And be assured that you will get a digital copy of each image you purchase. So why does the studio put such a high priority on printed images?

Printed images - Vancouver Portrait Studio

It's a feeling.

There is a special feeling seeing your portraits in print and it's something that we want to give to each of our clients. And studies back this up. When children see themselves in photographs, they develop a sense of belonging. They see themselves as part of something bigger, a family unit where they belong.

Do images viewed digitally have the same impact? Studies show that when kids see themselves in portraits displayed in their physical space, it creates a stronger impression and sense of belonging and confidence.

A Piece Of History - Vancouver Portrait Studio

As a child I loved flipping through old pictures. My Nana's old pictures in particular. She had beautiful portraits taken when she was a young woman, as a bride and as a young mother. It was so special to connect to a piece of her through a physical print.

How do you want your grown children and grandchildren to connect to you?

Digital images are great way to share images quickly and serve as a great back up, but a printed portrait is the best way to provide a tangible connection from our generation to the ones to come.
