The lifetime joy of printed photos

We often forget that photos become more valuable as we age. This photo essay featuring Nonna Connie and her photo collection is a reminder that we should print out what we care about, as photo prints may be your most precious belongings when loved ones are no longer with you.

“Connie is living testament that we should hold photographs in our hands and celebrate them for as long as we breathe.” – The Beautiful Collective
