5 Reasons Why you Should Print your Favourite Family Photos is a paid collaborative post with Epson as I am an #EpsonAbassador. As a family, we take more photos than ever before. It is estimated that in 2020 over 1.4 trillion digital photographs will be taken. Many are shared on social media but many more will be forgotten. With so many photos taken it can be hard to decide which ones to print or to even bother to print any at all.
As a Mum, I have seen the benefits of printing photographs over the years and love having the ability to print great quality prints at home. Growing up I remember sitting crossed-legged on the floor with the family albums in front on me, those spiral-bound books filled with photos of all sizes and filled with familiar faces and also people who I had never met, but knew the names of. They grounded me and I have had a love of printed photographs ever since.
Technology is so amazing now that there is no excuse not to print off great images at home and we have been using an Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 and using the Epson iPrint App the ability to send a print to it from wherever in the world as long as you have a cellular connection. The Epson iPrint Mobile App enables you to print or scan your photos, documents and webpages from your smartphone or tablet. You can print directly from Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and even Facebook Messenger. You can also use the iPrint app to resize images.

Here are five reasons why you should print your favourite family photos:
Build your children’s self-esteem
Children love seeing photos of themselves and research has shown that family photos around your home help to develop their self-esteem. Being surrounded by photos with their family reinforces a sense of self which helps to build security and confidence.
It brings your photos to life forever
Ultimately hard drives will fail, having printed images keeps them alive for you and your family for a long time. They are a tangible version of your memories.
So you look at them
How often do you scroll through all your digital photos with your family? You are much more likely to look at photos if they are in an album or scrapbook and you are much more likely yo share them with others.
Photographs make fab home decor
Personal touches are what turns a house into a home and photo prints are a simple way to do this. They create totally unique pieces for your home.
They create conversation
Maxi has recently been on a skiing trip with the school and regularly sent us pictures of his trip. He also made a scrapbook when he got home and we have spent so much time chatting about what went on and the images jogged his memory.
