Why hanging Family portraits in your home is important

There is just something about having your favorite people, places and memories turned into meaningful artwork and hung in your home that adds to the happy-home vibe, isn’t there? Apparently, psychologists studied the effect of having family photos displayed in the home and found that children who grew up in a house with family photographs on display developed greater confidence and a sense of belonging than those who didn’t. They had stronger feelings of value and a better understanding of where they came from, which is really what all of us want for our children, don’t we? Who would have thought that hanging photographs could have such a significant effect, but it totally makes sense when you think about it.

Of course, the biggest dilemma of all is which photographs out the eleventy-billion you have saved on your phone, laptop and in the cloud to choose. Yeah, I know you know what I’m talking about! Gone are the old days when we had to take the camera film to get developed, then wait a few days only to discover that almost half the photos had a fat pink splodge across the top left-hand corner that looked suspiciously like a finger. But didn’t we treasure the good ones all the more because of it? Now in 2021 you can either take photos of your phone and print them with a usually low quality, or you can hire a professional photographer for your big events. The biggest advantage of hiring a pro is that you will be in the photo!! Trust me your children want to see photos of their parents, not just them. Also, when hiring a portrait photographer who offer prints, you won't have to think about any of it. You will go home with stunning family portraits, ready to be hung on your wall.

At Daisy Rey Photography in New Jersey, I offer two options for my clients. The possibility to go home with your printed portraits or choose the digital packages. Going home with your prints offer the advantage of not having to think about any of it, so you can spent more time creating memories with your children. For those who have the time, the digital packages come with a high resolution file that allows you to print your portraits with the best possible quality. You will thank me 15 to 20 years from now, when you'll still have these kids photography, your family portraits, or even your maternity photos to cherish.
