The power of print
"Photography freezes time. It shows us who we are, where we’ve been and where we are going.
Photographs are made to seen. They are made to be touched, to act as reminders and bring memories forward that we may have forgotten.
I believe that a printed image is powerful and will tell your story for generations to come." - Tonia
One day my youngest son asked me where his baby photo album was. His older brother and sister have several documenting their younger years. We love to sit and turn the pages and talk about each and every image. So when my youngest asked me this question, I realized ALL of his images were taken in the digital age. And ALL of his images are on disk, in a duffle bag. Modern computers are no longer giving us access to disk drives and have made disks pretty much obsolete. I can only imagine that in a few years thumb drives will be the same way.
After explaining to my then 7 year old where his images were and why we couldn't view them just then made me realize just how important and powerful a printed image is. They tell a story - your story. They are more than just a picture on the wall or a book....they are memories. Memories of births, vacations, parties, people no longer with us or far away.
I believe in the power of print so much that a year after I started Tonia Johnston Photography, I became a full service photographer. Instead of burning your images to disk and sending you off to do the work, I do it for you. All you need to do is tell me what you want. In addition to prints, you can choose from an array of photo gifts, books, wall art, custom announcements and phone cases. Everything comes to you printed by professional labs that take pride in what they do. And you can rest easy knowing that every item you purchase through me comes with a guarantee and will be delivered to you in perfect condition.
