I can still recall the sound the old, white, leather album with plastic covering made when I opened it to reveal the black & white images of family members I’d only ever know by name & face. I’d hear the stories of who they were & what they did & how much they were loved just by turning the pages of my family history. We’d laugh at some of the funny faces that showed their personality or see ourselves in their eyes. It was their life & I came from it so it’s my life too. There’s nothing that can replace the time spent pouring over old photographs and hearing the stories of times gone by.
With the emergence of the digital age & convenience of digital photography I feel like we’ve somewhat lost the importance of the printed picture & the leather albums that hold our memories. I have this mental picture of a little girl about 6 years old asking her mom if she can see pictures of when she & daddy got married. Mom walks to the computer, slips in a thumb drive & they sit the desk and look through 100s of images. That is sad to me. When my day comes for a precious soul to ask me about the day I married her daddy I want to snuggle up on the couch with lemonade or hot coco & slowly open up the pages that will tell her where she comes from & who we were when we said forever. Then I want to pull out albums that show how excited we were when she joined our family & made us the happiest two people could ever be. You see, I will have created memories for her like I have with my mom. It’s tradition, it’s life, it’s memories, & it’s love.
So, with all that said here are the albums I offer here at MSP to help you display your lovely, wonderful life. Whether it’s the day you said “I do” or the day your baby turned 1 it’s all worth treasuring & keeping it safe.
