Last month was Sarah Janes photography 4th birthday..my baby is toddling and growing up so fast..
But this means that I have now 4 wedding seasons of wedding images and 4 years of pre-wedding shoots, family shoots and baby shoots that I am trying to store. I had to ask myself can I really hand on heart say that your digital files are going to be here in 50 years...and I cannot say yes. I can store the files in umpteen places but there can be no guarantee that over time the files will not become corrupt. And with each new camera the file sizes are getting bigger and bigger and bigger.....we are left with a storage problem people!
So after some research and asking a few fellow photographer girlfriends, as of January 2012 I will store portrait sessions for 3 months and wedding images for two years before they are cleared to make space for more storage.
Future facebook images will also change, from now on only the images from prints, products purchased etc will be be uploaded to facebook for you to share with your friends and family on facebook
I will be contacting all my past clients, where possible, with this update.
