I absolutely love the flexibility and freedom that digital cameras provide. With the advent of Facebook, Flickr, emails and blogs, memories and images captured with digital photography can be shared quickly and easily with friends and family around the world. The downside to digital photography, however, is the risk of beautiful photographs and treasured memories becoming trapped on computers where the are not shared and enjoyed on a regular basis.
It is for this reason that I love it when clients ask me to design hardcover books for them. A beautiful hardcover book, when displayed on a coffee table in your home, can be an art piece, a conversation starter and a reminder of the relationships, special events or quiet daily routines of your life.
I highly encourage anybody with digital photographs stacked up on your computer desktop to take the time to have some of your favourite images printed, either as a book or for display in your home, so you can be reminded of the beauty in your life without having to sit at a computer to do it.
Surround yourself with the images you love and your life will automatically be more beautiful.
If you're not sure how to print images, or make books, please email me and I'd be happy to give you some advice or assistance.
Below are some images of a book I designed last year as Brooke & Hunter's guest book for their wedding. I left lots of white space around their photos so friends and family could sign the pages. And as you'll see from the detail shots, the quality is excellent.
Have a look and then consider putting a book together for yourself today!
