I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful boy on Day 7 yesterday. He was an absolute pleasure to photograph and was a perfect little model.
Here is Baby A:
The photos shown in this post were taken in 1905. The ones that are missing were taken 100 years later in 2005. The ones taken in 1905 are in an album and are still available for us to see. The ones taken in 2005 are missing.
How can this be?
It’s very simple. The ones taken in 1905 were taken with film and prints were made of them. The ones taken in 2005 were taken on a digital camera and were never printed. The owner of these prints and missing files is my husband, John. His plan had been to go to England and find the spots where his grandfather had taken the pictures and take pictures in the same spots. One hundred years later!
He found most of the spots in and around Chillington, England. He was even able to match the first picture of his grandfather leaning on a fence with one of himself leaning on the very same fence. How exciting it must have been to have found the same spot that his grandfather had stood 100 years ago. He still has the pictures from 114 years ago, but not the ones from 14 years ago.
It must have been very exciting to plan and execute this trip following his grandfather’s footsteps.
But he only has his memory of the trip as those matching pictures are gone.
It’s a perfect example of what will happen in the future. In 100 years, our descendants won’t have any images to show how we lived. Unless we make prints.
Even if you’re running low on wall space, printing can still play an important role in archiving your images. The physics of how light bounces off a piece of paper and into your eyes is not going to change, but the way a computer reads an image file does change. JPEG, long the standard of compressed images, is beginning to give way to the new HEIF format. Optical disks like DVDs used to be the gold standard of photo backup, but now they’ve all but vanished. External hard drives have gone through several types of physical connection, from USB to FireWire to Thunderbolt — and several generations of each.
Please make prints to preserve your memories for yourself and for future generations!
Enjoy these pictures taken by Alfred Kaye in the year 1905!
This little lady is 19 months old already and she came yesterday for her 4th photography session. It took a while for her to warm up and smile but once she started she was a going concern!
Here is a very lovely little girl!
There are 2 ways that you can get free prints. The first way is as part of a package. It looks like this:
The second way is by referring someone to me. For every person that you refer that comes for a session, you will receive a $50 credit towards prints.
Don’t delay in grabbing these limited time specials! They will be available until April 15th only!
Please note that prices are subject to change at any time.
There is a common misconception among the public about purchasing digital images from professional photographers. Their idea is that because the image is digital, it does not have a cost. Nothing could be further from the truth. I created this graphic to illustrate some of the costs of running a photography business and producing an image.
There is a cost to printing an image on paper, but it is a small percentage of the costs of creating that image. I am not in the business of selling paper. I am in the business of selling my art.
I will sell a digital image to you. It will be the same price as an 8×10 print; with or without the print.
And we do need to print our images. The following article is an interesting read on the subject:
I love dogs and I know a lot of my clients do too.
I created these 2 dog posters this past year. The first one is hanging at my front door of our 3 beasts!
I can customize this poster for you if you have dogs that shed. Contact me if you are interested and we can talk about sizes, prices and the picture of your dog that we will use.
I have this poster below hanging in our bathroom at Victoria Beach. I love the dog (people) wisdom in it.
Let me know if this is something you would be interested in purchasing.
Yours in Photography,
I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy yesterday and he was just the most incredible baby model. At 3 weeks of age, he slept and slept and let me pose him with hardly a peep.
Here is a preview of this adorable baby boy!
It was a delight to photograph this 11 day old baby girl. She was a perfect little model for me. And so cute too!
Here is a sneak peek at our session.
After spending the last month painting my house and doing book work it has been a wonderful to be back photographing babies and the last 2 have been especially precious.
This one month old boy came to see me on Wednesday and he made my day. I love his big brown eyes and his curious expressions.
Have a look at this sneak peek!
