I’m SO excited to have one of my photos/stories chosen for Mylio True Story series. The concept is to choose a photo and explain what the photo means to you emotionally. How interesting!
Our photos are so powerful. They are so precious. They tell the story of our families, our lives. They are our memory keepers.
I know many people hesitate to get their family photos digitized because they feel like digital photos are “cold.” They feel disconnected from the photos. A paper photo has a feel, a smell, a tactile quality that isn’t present when the photos are on a digital screen. I get it…I do.
The reality though is that your paper photos are not safe. They are slowly disintegrating. They are vulnerable to moisture, sunlight, and temperature.
Using a service like Mylio is a great comprimise. Mylio makes it possible to share and enjoy your photos in ways not possible with physical photos. It enables you to share collages and slide shows with all your friends and family. It also keeps your photos safe. The amazing photo of you as a flower girl at your favorite aunt’s wedding will never fade, will never get damaged. It will be safe.
The below picture of me with my grandfather is one of my prized possessions. I NEVER want to be without it. I use this photo to remind me of not only this day but everyday I ever shared with him. It is the keystone to a relationship that continues even after his passing.
Do you have photos like this? Images of loved ones passed? Pictures of weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties? Events that have long ended except in our hearts?
I know I say it a LOT but please invest in your family photos. They are tickets to the greatest show on earth…your story. And please click on the link below to hear the story behind this photo.
