I grew up with a camera in my hands. True story. Maybe that’s why I’ve always been such a photo enthusiast. Now, as director of Social Media at Walgreens, it serves me well.
For me, the love of photography is an ingrained family trait. In fact, my dad was a photographer who worked at Fuji for more than 2 decades. I have fond memories of him turning our bathroom into a darkroom at one point, much to my mom’s chagrin. We always had cameras around the house and now we still do. Except today mine is a Nikon D700 that’s usually aimed at my two children, John and Cora.
Though sharing photos of my kids through email, Facebook and my website is simple and fun, there’s just something about seeing your photos printed. Over the years I’ve had my memories turned into slides, prints, photo books, canvas pieces and more. Look, when you had kids, you just want to show them off, you know? Plus, I take comfort in knowing that when my photos are printed they won’t end up in someone’s spam or lost in a computer file. Instead they’ll be in a frame or a scrapbook. I don’t know, for me it just gives the memory more meaning and makes it feel lasting.
One of my favorite ways to display photos is through Glass Prints. What are Glass Prints, you may ask? They are unique glass frames that allow your photo to be suspended and almost look like it floats in air. They provide a clean, easy way to showcase photos and they make colors pop when sunlight shines through. The glass comes in a variety of sizes and finishes including curved, beveled and clean cut. I love them, but I also love to give them as gifts. People never expect the level of sophistication they posses until they see them first-hand.
I hope you enjoy our new photo blog Snaps and come back often to see what topics, tips and tricks of the trade we cover. They’ll always be something new to explore and a conversation to be had.
