I am a firm believer in printing your images, even if it's just a proof 4x6" size. The reason being that we never know when our computer or device might fail... or the internet, as we know it, disappears. If we don't have our memories printed, we'll just be left with the verbal stories. I print everything, even my terrible, not so great cell phone images. This is why I believe in the Art of the Tangible.
My clients are in love with these two items, mainly because they are truly, family heirlooms. My collections come with 4x6" Wood Proof boxes that are hand-made and archival, meaning they don't have oils or stains that will eventually seep into the contents inside. They're sanded by hand and feature exquisite box joints and details. Truly, the wood's natural beauty is showcased. And inside, wrapped in a micro-suede fabric are 200-400+ archival proof 4x6" prints, carefully picked from the images of your wedding day or portrait session.
For clients wanting to create and keep a true family heirloom, they go with the Heirloom Box. A hand-crafted, archival box featuring ten 10x10" mounted, archival, deep matte prints carefully wrapped in micro-suede, which leaves plenty of room to add ribbon from your wedding day or special mementos like a hair piece and notes you wrote each other over the years. And as time goes on, you can keep adding to it. And when you pass away, your children's children will be able to look through the family heirloom, see the memories and show, as well as tell, your family history.
