Handmade Heirloom Albums

heirloomAlbumsheirloomAlbums I'm so super excited about my growing product range! For those of you who haven't met me, you should know that I am passionate about preserving family photographs! The oldest photograph I own myself is of my grandfather and his twin brother when they were just 9 months old! It's now 92 years old and still in one piece! 

We currently live in an age where wireless, and paperless are the preferred options for so many everyday things, and photographs are no exception to this trend.

But did you know that the life span of a JPEG (digital photograph) is only approximately 10 years before it corrupts? That's if heat, moisture or impact hasn't corrupted it before then, or the disc/USB that it's stored on hasn't been misplaced. 

I'm a big advocate on printing your photographs. Even if it's just a 4x6 printed at your local pharmacy lab. A new digital copy can always be made from a physical printed image, but a new print can never be made from a corrupted digital file.

Don't worry though, I'm not getting rid of my digital collections all together! I understand how important it is to have them available in digital formats for ease of sharing etc. But from now on, all digital sales will come with a set of professionally printed proofs, for safekeeping, and to remind you how much more beautiful and special a tangible photograph is!

In addition to my digital collections, I am also creating a range of beautiful archival quality products which include Fine Art Prints - exquisite textured cotton rag papers, beautiful Custom Framed wall art and my latest addition and the subject of this blog post - Heirloom Albums.

 

What's so special about these albums?

 

  • The Paper - The images are printed on immaculate lustre paper giving your images the vibrancy of a gloss print with the texture of matte.

 

  • The Ink - The inks used are acid free (unlike the inks used at consumer level print labs) which means they will last a lifetime without cracking, discolouring or fading.

 

  • The Cover - Beautiful to look at and touch as well as protecting the images inside! Available in 100% cotton linen or genuine leather in a rang of colours, these albums are sure to look amazing on any bookshelf or coffee table!

 

  • The Preparation - Each album is custom designed by myself (with your input) and then sent to a lab only available to professional photographers and designers, where the pages are printed and the album assembled and bound by hand. This hands on manufacturing process ensures each album produced is of exceptional quality.  ​

  • The Sentiment - Your album maintains your memories and preserves the history of your family to be enjoyed by future generations!

 

​These exquisite album books are available now in 3 sizes and can be customised to suit any session, from mini milestones to a wedding! I love them so much, that I am also making them available to past clients that didn't get the opportunity to choose this option at the time of their session!
