Give a lasting gift this holiday season

Holiday Gifts Sunday night marked the start of Hanukkah and the beginning of the December gift-giving holidays. There’s something truly magical about this time of year where generosity and good cheer seem to be electrifying the air.

As we shop the malls and outlets trying to find gifts and presents to delight our loved ones, let’s take a minute to be thankful for the wonderful people who have touched our lives. We share treasured memories with our friends and family, and it’s important to make sure these memories are kept safe.

If you’re unsure of what to get a loved one for Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanza, then consider giving them a -Gift Certificate to ScanMyPhotos. This gift will allow them to preserve their precious memories for future generations to enjoy.

Photography Tips
Photography Tip

If you are graced with snow during the holidays, ensure your outdoor photos taken in the snow turn out beautifully by adjusting your camera’s exposure compensation feature from manual to +1 or +2. If you don’t, your camera will overcompensate for the bright snow by underexposing the picture.
