I’m loving this amazing black leather family album designed for this wonderful Maryland family. Upon receiving the album, you’ll be amazed with the packaging as it is entirely handmade – packaged with paper handmade from recycled pineapple leaves and finished with a paper ribbon from recycled mulberry leaves. The enhancement is made from skeleton leaves and dried flowers.
Hello Friday! It’s nice to see another week conclude. We just had the Fourth of July celebration; a time that many families get together and spend time together. Usually during family time; families bring out pictures and albums and reminisce of happy times. Today in my Friday Fives, I am discussing the top 5 reasons I love Heirloom Albums.

Have you scheduled your Cherry Blossom portrait appointment for 2018 in Washington DC? If not, this is a great opportunity to schedule your family portraits. Spring is a wonderful time to have your family photographed. It’s a lot warmer and the beautiful blossoms and the wonderful smells are everywhere.
If you haven’t scheduled your appointment, now is a great time. I will be giving one family who schedules with Tamieka Smith Photography for their Cherry Blossoms before January 21st of this year a complimentary 20 page, 10×10 Heirloom family – a $1500 value! In addition, two families will receive a $300 and $200 credit, respectively.
There is no limit on the number of pictures that may be included in the album, just remember the more pictures you place in the album, the more crowded the pages become. The winners may also upgrade from this album if so desired.
These albums are produced using archival inks and acid-free papers. Then handcrafted using a 1/4" thick moisture resistant, acid-free, warp-free boards and only the finest textile cover materials. These family heirloom albums are created to last for 200 plus years with less than 8% color fade.
Family Heirloom Albums
Have you seen the albums? I haven’t shared about the albums in a while so today I thought I’d show you a little peek at the new album options that are available to Tamieka Smith Photography clients.
An album is a great way to showcase your family’s portrait session. It tells the story of your family in no other way. And it lives on to tell your story to future generations. My goal as family photographer in Northern Virginia, is not only to capture the memories of your family but also to create a tangible heirloom that you’ll be proud to share with friends and family, and look back upon for years to come.
Now, I get it. Albums are a luxurious product. However, they’re worth every dollar.
Pictures are in high demand lately. You don't believe me! Look at your mobile phone, I'm certain there's a camera. What about your iPad or tablet, does it have a camera? Do you have a DSLR or shoot and click camera? Although we are taking countless pictures, we no longer print or display those pictures in our homes. These images tend to stay in digital format whether they're on our computers, smartphones, or on the CD from our last photographer. Don't allow your digital images to become lost or damaged.
Technology is constantly changing! For example the diskette to the right has been obsolete for years. Many of the devices we rely on and use to store our families history and pictures will no longer be available within 5 to 6 years from now. Sadly, this means you will have to continuous transfer your portraits to ensure you don't lose them and hopefully they don't become corrupted.
One of the first questions people ask when looking for a family photographer is if they offer all the digital images
from their portrait session. In fact, many families and couples plan to only purchase the digital images and aren’t interested in anything else and ready get frustrated when anything else is suggested.
By only purchasing the digital images, you’re putting yourself at a huge risk of losing your photos in just a few short years. Many well-intentioned families and couples who only get the digital images never print their images at all, or only print a few for gifts or for display.
However, there’s a huge risk of losing the images and memories from them over time when you only have the
With only the digital files, you are responsible for transferring the images from one type of digital media to another as technology advances every few years. Every time a file is transferred, there’s a risk of file corruption. Not only that, but if life gets crazy and you fail to transfer it to the new media, you may end up with a beautiful disc/flash drive/etc of photos that you can’t see anymore because there’s no machine around to use the disc/flash drive/etc with.
This is why we believe that a professional portrait album is of the utmost importance. Even if you never do anything except store it in a closet, you’ll still have images to look at and enjoy years from now with no additional work whatsoever (like having electricity or the necessary medium to view the digital files).
In fact, we believe in this so strongly that we now include an album or book in every single package we offer. We only offer professional, high quality signature albums/books made with archival inks and papers that are created to last for generations with proper care. We want the memories of your family to be seen and enjoyed by your family for years to come.
Don’t risk losing your memories. Make purchasing and designing a beautiful signature album priority number one. We promise you there will not be any regrets.
