Social media can show how much people are fascinated with photos or capturing images for the sake of sharing it online. The availability of smart phones, high definition cameras, and other gadgets that allow you to shoot and post makes it easy for everyone to take pictures whenever and wherever they want. Parents often become shutter addicts when it comes to their kids especially those who have toddlers. But aside from storing these images in their digital forms, there are tons of fun and creative ways to make use of your family photos.
In the pre-digital camera world, people would have their images printed in photo paper in order to appreciate them. Nowadays, they are mostly stored in digital albums, digital picture frames, or stored in CDs and USBs. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Family photos can be great home decors too. Put them in various frames and hang them on the wall or place them on top of your mantle. You may also print them out in a collage form and place it on a glass covered table in the family room. For the sentimental type, family pictures are best preserved in albums or scrapbooks. Nothing beats the traditional style of scrapbooking where one can put their stories in the form of pictures and souvenirs in one book. There are also printing services that can help you make a personalized coffee table book out of your favorite pictures. If you don’t have the budget for it then perhaps a personalized family calendar could do.
People who like to have photos of their loved ones at work can get personalized mugs of tumblers with their favorite family pictures printed in it. If you want to be adventurous in fashion then you can have these pictures printed on your shirts or bags pretty much like the John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe images in pop culture.
Family photos become more priceless as time goes by. There is no turning back time and the only way to recapture fond moments that have gone is through the pictures that you shot. Don’t be content with just sharing them in social media or storing them in your digital file. There are so many ways to share and enjoy your family photos.
