Don’t rely on Facebook to make your Christmas memories

Christmas tree by Birmingham photographer Barry RobinsonChristmas is about making memories, and we make the happiest memories with friends and family.  These days, however, a family has become a fluid concept. It’s no longer aunt Betsy and uncle Donald. Increasingly, we create complex new family structures through friends and extended relationships. This makes our families even more complex, and our memories harder to pin down in the traditional sense. There’s rarely a single book of pictures anymore. Instead, we’ve come to rely on services like Facebook and Instagram to keep it all safe for us. There’s rarely a book of pictures anymore. Instead, we’ve come to rely on services like Facebook and Instagram to keep pointers to our lives safe.

A post maybe forever, but it’s not really a thing of beauty! So at New Street Photography we’ve made the decision simple for you this year!
