We make a lot of them during our life.

We live our life, we wake up every morning and go to work or to school. Sometimes we go on holidays and spend time with our friends.

And we take pictures of those happy hours we spent with beloved ones, of that food we ate that Saturday night that just looked too amazing to not take a picture off. We take pictures because we want to be able to remember. We want memories.<3

But all of a sudden we realize how fast time has passed. We have a look at all those pictures on our phone, our Facebook, and our Instagram.

You see pictures of you and your friends on a night out, photos of you in a Superman costume for Halloween, and photos of you lying on the beach in Rhodos. Rhodos, you almost forgot about that…

And you yet have not come to realize that all this really happened in this short amount of time that is already gone with the wind. Your memories begin to fade. Even though you took photos of everything.

You realize you have them anywhere and nowhere.

You might have them on your phone and social media. But you might have forgotten to store them where they really belong to – Your heart!<3

The way I love to keep my memories is by having printed photos. Printed photos are, in my eyes, the best solution for keeping the memories you already kept in a photograph. It’s the best solution for having them the closest to your heart.

Because actual photos you can hold in your hand, write something on it, organize them in a photobook and look at them over and over again. Without having a fear of them getting lost just because you might lose your phone or your laptop doesn’t work anymore etc.

That’s why ever since I am little my parents would print all the photos. And I always loved to spend some time sitting on the floor with a hot cup of tea and look at the photos again. To look at the memories and memorize my childhood and all the exciting trips we have done.

And ever since it has been ifolorwhich developed these photos and provided them with the highest and best quality possible. Ifolor accompanied my childhood, and it will surely accompany much more of my life…

    Printing photos is a great way of keeping memories alive, something I should do more often, especially since It is so much fun to orgaise them into photobooks!
