Reasons Why You Should Be Printing Your Photos - Bend OR Family Photographer

Thanks to amazing technology right at our fingertips, we're able to capture so many amazing moments in our lives. You probably take more pictures than you mom, dad and grandmother combined.

The problem is, that’s where it ends. Click, click click. Share. And then we forget about it. I am just as guilty as everyone else. I took this photograph a year ago and just discovered it on my hard drive. I love it-how can you not, look at that grin!


I got married 9 years ago and my wedding photos were delivered on a CD. Totally acceptable. Fast forward 9 years and my computer is without a disc drive.


  • Technology is ever changing. One day you’ll wake up and your digital storage solutions will be outdated. Or worse, your drive will crash and all those memories will be gone forever.
  • It is *so* easy to print online. There are so many apps for that, you don’t even have to get off your couch.
  • The everyday, mundane moments matter. The way your kitchen looks right now. The clothes you’re wearing. You’re preserving moments in each photo.
  •  History! Yes, history is important. Thanks to printed photos of the past, historians and scientists can gather information about our world.
  • It’s the most affordable art for your walls.

So have I convinced you yet? Go print your photos!!!
