Phoenix Photographer: Heirloom Portrait Albums
I’ve been a Phoenix photographer for over 11 years now and I didn’t offer albums until about a year ago. Why? Because I never really fell in love with any of them! I’ve been offering custom artwork since I opened Magical Memories by Michelle in 2009, and printed products are very important to me. If you’ve seen my products, you know that the majority of them are printed on high quality silk photographic paper. Since then, well, I guess I’m spoiled. I want everything printed in silk! While I did find some beautiful albums, none of them offered silk pages. Then I found this beauty! It has quickly become a client favorite and is a great keepsake for your senior portrait session!
Photographic Silk Paper
Ok, so why the fuss over silk paper? One reason I love these prints is that they have very deep color tones and are just so vibrant! The texture is unlike anything other photographic papers available. In fact, many professional labs don’t even offer silk prints. One of the biggest reasons I love silk is that it is fingerprint resistant. Our product line is meant to be enjoyed for years to come so it’s extremely important to me that they hold up well. An album isn’t meant to just sit on a shelf. I want it displayed in your home and so will you! I want your family to sit around and look through the album together. I want you to have that quality downtime remembering your senior at this age…without the worry of damaging your album. With silk pages, the fingerprints simply wipe off with a clean cloth. Notice I said clean, NOT wet! Just a dry cloth will remove those pesky fingerprints. That way, as your teenager leaves the nest and heads to college, you’ll have this gorgeous keepsake to look through when the reality hits. Just don’t get tears on it!
With so many designs and a beautiful black binding, these albums will match nearly any decor. Simply choose your favorite image for the cover and we’ll add any text, name, graduation year, or quote to personalize your luxury album. This will be a treasure for in your family for years. The album will be custom designed with your favorite images and is easily displayed on a decorative easel instead of being packed away.
Your Favorite Portraits
How often do you pull the USB out and look through images from your photo shoots? How much have you really printed? For most of my clients, the USB’s sit in a drawer and go nearly untouched. After the first 100 likes on social media, the images are forgotten in a desk drawer. With an album, or any of our other unique products, your album will hold at least 20 of your favorite pictures. It makes it much easier to have a beautiful, simple way to showcase your entire session! And here’s an added bonus. If you have digital images from any photo shoot, we can create an album with those too, as long as you have a print release.
High End, Heirloom Quality
With the layflat pages, you can spread a single image across both pages with no visible seam. Yes, these albums do have a lifetime guarantee. The pages are thick, similar to our mounted prints, and won’t easily bend or tear. I’ve heard of cheap albums falling apart after being opened only once or twice. All our products are guaranteed, including our albums. These are your memories and I want you to feel confident that your beloved portraits can be passed down for generations.
