I have always been a gigantic fan of photos. Maybe most Moms are, but I recall the first year I received a Kodak camera as a gift for Christmas. I think I was actually still a tween at that stage and cameras still used those disposable flash bulbs. I tried to explain this process to one of my daughters the other day.
Back in my teens, I remember having to take the actual film cartridge out of the film and drop it at Blacks, or Shoppers Drug Mart. Then you’d wait a week or longer sometimes for your memories to solidify on paper. It was not a cheap process, but it was simply how the technology worked.
When you got each pretty photo back, you’d slide them into a photo album where you arranged them and sometimes gave them sticker captions. It was like an early version of scrapbooking.
Thank goodness it doesn’t take a week to see those photos anymore. Digital photos are virtually instantaneous. And you carry them with you everywhere. But there’s still something to be said for saving special moments and framing them, or adding to tangible albums.
Thankfully Posterjack makes that an easy job. All your special moments – from travel to Christmas, to simple every day family fun – can be saved and cherished with Posterjack. Now my special moments, the ones I want to see and remember and hold close are hanging on the walls of our home.
Posterjack makes keeping memories simple and affordable too. Plus I am always extremely surprised by their great service. They are super speedy and they have so many options and styles to choose from. This year I opted to frame a print from the summer. This one reminds me of our trip to Quebec in July.
As my kids grow our special moments are sometimes harder to find or capture. Teens have less time for parents and moments together are hard to nail down. My older daughter and I were walking together far behind my husband and younger daughter and I was trying to capture the moment with a selfie. A kind gentleman asked if he could take the photo for me and we ended up with this lovely shot.
My teen is self conscious often and is very critical of photos in which she appears right now. But this one is just perfect to both of our minds. So, I made sure that we have the world’s largest log castle and our special July day remembered on canvas with a white frame. It’s going on my gallery wall in the basement.
