Computers, data, terabytes, and old technology are the downfall of this current generation. It’s been said that this is the most-photographed generation, and, unfortunately, in twenty years, they will have nothing to show for it. Do you ever look at old family photos and wonder what life was like “back then”?

Did you print a single one of them? Does digital clutter give you a headache?
I know what you want mom! You just want ONE GREAT photo with everyone in it. Why do you want it? You want it to capture who your family is today. You want it to have a record of your family history and legacy. You want it because time does not stand still and today is important.
