The BEST Way to Remember Your Senior Portrait Session: The Heirloom Album!
I’ve been a Phoenix photographer for almost 13 years and I believe your photos are meant to be printed. Today I want to share my heirloom albums…they are gorgeous!! I’ve been offering custom artwork since I opened Magical Memories by Michelle in 2009, and my clients want printed products. If you’ve seen my product line, you know that the majority of them are printed on high quality crystal silk photographic paper but finding an album with silk pages was no easy task. 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!
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? I know you’ve had the best of intentions, but you’re busy and all of a sudden it’s been 5 years and the USB from your family pictures is still in the desk drawer, untouched. Of course those first couple of days were amazing with all the likes and comments on social media, right? But now what? Unlike other photographers who offer just digital images, I offer premium artwork that you can’t get anywhere else, and that includes these stunning albums that with full page spreads…no seams or gutters! Each page is pressed and mounted to create an album that will make you squeal with excitement. I know you want to remember everything about senior year, so this makes it much easier to have a simple way to showcase your entire session! And here’s an added bonus. If you have digital images from any photo shoot, I 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 the wall portraits, and won’t easily bend or tear. I’ve heard of cheap albums falling apart after being opened only once or twice. All my products are guaranteed, including these gorgeous albums. These are your memories and I want you to feel confident that your beloved portraits can be passed down for generations.
Finest Quality 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. My product line is meant to be enjoyed by your family 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 time 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.
As a mom to a new graduate, your post has me excited to try the silk paper! I’ll try to not get tears on them. ? Such a sad but exciting mom time. And he’s my second out the door!
My first just graduated, Class of 2019, and it is definitely exciting, sad, and every other emotion!
I love this! I love looking at my wedding album, but never thought of doing one for a high school senior before.
Absolutely!!! Great way to display a bunch of photos without taking up a huge wall space!
These albums are great! Such an informative blog!
Thanks so much Erin!
Great post! Like you, this is my first year offering albums and they are my favorite. Absolutely love seeing clients get these in their hands.
You’re so right about the memories sitting forgotten in a desk drawer. I need to look into having albums made. Thanks for the suggestion.
I hear it all the time, to the point where I now offer that to everyone even if I didn’t take their pictures!
Stunning album! Albums are my absolute favorite!
Thanks Brandi! Definitely a favorite around here now too!
Love the photos of the actual album!
Thanks Amy! Product photography is definitely not my strong suit, but I love the idea of showing the thick pages and try to share how amazing the album really is. Pictures don’t do it justice!
I love everything about this post! I have never tried silk paper, but now I need to! Love your album!
You must! It’s so pretty!
This album is amazing. Silk paper…I wish I could see in person. I love your album and I’m sure your seniors are super grateful that you off these lovely designer products!
Thanks Rae! The silk paper does not photograph well at all, wish I could show it that easily! It doesn’t have much texture, but mine always come out a little less crisp than I’d like. Then again, it is a picture of a picture, so that probably makes a difference. Look into it, you’ll love it!
Great post! Silk paper idea is awesome. I’ll definitely try it.
You won’t be sorry, it’s so pretty!
Excellent post and full of great photos. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us.
Glad you enjoyed it Denise!
This is such an incredible way to show off some of your favourite photos rather than leaving them tucked away on a USB somewhere never to be seen!
