These days, digital images are incredibly convenient. They can be easily stored on your computer or a flash drive, they take up less space than albums and wall art, and they are always on hand when you need them. But how many times have you set that flash drive of photos in a desk drawer, planning to get prints but never quite getting around to it?
Digital images can be useful, especially when sharing your photos with family and friends on social media, but they can also be easily lost or permanently damaged. Check out these six reasons why digital images aren’t as great as we need them to be. And this greatly applies to your boudoir images too!
1) You can’t archive them.
You can store your digital image files on your computer, in the cloud, or various other storage places both online and in your home. But what happens if you cancel your cloud service or fail to keep up with the subscription? What if the flash drive you kept your photos on is lost? Then your images are gone for good. There’s no way to keep a permanent archive of digital photos without constantly moving from platform to platform as technology evolves. The memories in your photos are irreplaceable.
2) They can be corrupted or lost.
Just as bad as lost images are corrupted ones. Unlike prints or physical products, digital files can be corrupted, making them inaccessible and impossible to salvage. All your memories can easily be destroyed, leaving you with no way to get them back. Yes, I understand that your boudoir photos are photographs that you may want to hide from the prying eyes of nosey relatives when they visit your home. But what if you misplace your flash drive and someone has accidentally gotten hold of it? We do not want you to be put into such a dire and complicated situation!
3) You may forget about them.
Digital images are great to have—until that flash drive starts gathering dust in your junk drawer or gets left in a box. Let’s face it: We all lead pretty busy lives, and it can be hard to remember to get around to downloading those photos and actually doing something with them. Often, our digital images end up forgotten instead.
4) They are costly—and that doesn’t include wall art
Let’s say you do remember to do something with that flash drive, and you log on to Shutterfly or visit your local photo printing shop to get some images printed. You’ve already paid for the session and the digital files, and now you have to pay high prices for wall art and albums too. And the worst part? Most big companies don’t even offer high-quality prints, so you may end up with too dark images, too light or just not great, which is a waste of money. As for boudoir photography, the nature of this type of photography can be sensitive. I don't think you want the employee at the print shop to see your images of vulnerability, or worse, and you don't even know where your images are being shared, or they might get stolen by the print shop employee!

5) You have to keep up with new storage options
Not so long ago, you may have stored your images on floppy disks, but good luck finding a computer with a floppy disk drive these days.
As technology changes, your chosen storage for your digital files must change, which means you may keep switching from one storage option to another as the years pass to ensure that your images aren’t lost. Whew! That's a lot to keep up with!
6) They have less emotional impact
Physical prints such as wall art and albums of your family portraits can remind your children and family of their importance in your life. They can be a celebration of your family’s bonds and an ever-present sign of how much your family means to you. It is a great uplifting feeling of warmth and connection with loved ones.
We have had clients who told us that seeing their boudoir photos on a wall boosted their confidence. Digital images, however, are just photos on a screen. Studies show that they don’t have the same impact as seeing prints, which means you could be depriving yourself of a chance to boost your confidence and self-esteem, especially when it was a dreary day.
So what should we do with digital images? Get your priceless photos printed! We have various physical print products available for you to showcase your boudoir photoshoot. From luscious wall art to luxurious handmade albums and folios, these products come with a lifetime guarantee!
