I’ve heard it a thousand times, “I don’t think I want a boudoir album, I’ll probably just want to buy some digitals.” There are reasons I recommend a boudoir album over digitals. A large part of it is protecting your investment and experience. Allow me to explain.

A brief history of media storage in my lifetime

Depending how old you are, you may or may not know the history of media. When I was a kid, my parents used to play their old 78 rpm records – heavy plastic disks that cracked easily.

I was more modern. My music came on 45 rpm records and the albums on 33 rpm LP’s. I had crates of them. I’d play them on a record player.

When I went on trips, it was either listen to the radio, or break out my trusty 8 track tape player. 8 track tapes were on the way out though, so I purchased a state of the art cassette tape player. I was hip!

Back then, your photos were taken on film and sent off to be printed. Or some families had Polaroid cameras which developed themselves before your eyes. Nothing was digital. Around the early 1980’s the home computer market was booming. My first was a Timex Sinclair – followed by the huge upgrade to a Commodore 64. Back then, data was stored on cassette tapes and took forever to load. As soon as I could afford it, I bought a 5.25″ floppy drive! Much faster! And by the time I had gotten to an IBM home computer, I was in the 3.5″ drive stage. Things were humming along at the speed of syrup! I can remember when they stopped putting floppy drives in computers. Everything switched over to CD’s – even my music. But I was able to watch videos on my old VHS Cassette player. (Blu-Ray disks were on the way …) But VHS disappeared, so did CD’s. Now you could plug a USB into the computer and transfers were much faster. Until Apple dropped the USB port in favor of their new Thunderport which was the size of a USB-C.

What about boudoir albums vs. digital photos?

I point out the above for a reason. The way information is stored and transferred constantly changes. Older formats get left in the dust. How many people even own a record player or cassette tape player anymore? Or can read a 5.25″ floppy disk?

Even your smart phone, which seems like the latest and greatest technology now, will one day be outdated. Probably sooner than you think.

Sure, you could always store your images on the cloud, but you can never be certain the photos would be safe.

The benefit of a luxury boudoir album

Your boudoir photos are art. They deserve to be printed and seen. By you especially – and not lost on some hard drive or server where you only look at them occasionally.

Our luxury albums are made of the finest materials, hand crafted to your preferences. You can choose from a large number of quality cover materials, facing pages and photo page materials. The inks and paper are archival quality, meaning your photos will last you a life time. And the best part, holding these boudoir albums in your hands and physically turning from stunning photo to stunning photo will empower you all over again.

So come to the boudoir studio and take a look at our sample boudoir albums and products before you just decide to “get some digitals.” We are going to create art, and you deserve the chance to see it the way it was meant to be viewed.
