With the passing of our beloved Simon, I had all of these photos of him on my phone that I had no idea what to do with. Sure, I can copy them to my computer, save them in cloud backup, and preserve them forever. But all that does is put them out of sight until the next time I decide to look through my vast library of photos. But with Simon gone, and the pain of losing our “baby” still nearly as painful as that difficult day in October, I was looking for a better way to enjoy the last photos I took of him.
The Sweet Pix App provided the perfect opportunity!
About Sweet Pix

All you have to do is access any of the images on your phone or Instagram, and shipping is FREE! Stick them to your wall, take them down, and put them somewhere else.

Sweet Pix is such a quick and easy process. It took mere minutes to select my photos, crop and order them. My pictures were delivered within a week and i was so excited to hang them in a place of distinction under our wedding photo. My husband was a bit concerned about the sticky pads as we had recently painted, but they seem to stick well and we didn’t have a problem removing one. My Sweet Pix photos really complete this wall and we all love being able to have this remembrance of Simon where we can see him constantly. It makes it feel like he is still with us.
The photos are securely mounted on a 1/2″ thick foam and the mounting pads raise the foam off the wall slightly giving the photos depth and a nice shadow line as they hang on the wall. They almost appear to float!
What a perfect way to honor our first baby!
I couldn’t be happier with my Sweet Pix, although I do have a couple of suggestions to make them even better. First, in-app photo editing would be a huge plus. A couple of my pictures could have benefited from some increase contrast and brightness. Second, the app claims to integrate with Instagram, but only the copy of the photos you uploaded to Instagram that go into an album on your phone, it doesn’t access your Instagram feed directly. Considering I routinely delete photos to free up space on my phone, the Instagram folder is often empty. I’d love to be able to access my entire Instagram feed from the app.
Each of the 2 Sweet Pix packages costs $49.00 shipped. There is the 8″x8″ package which includes 4 photos or the 6″x6″ package that includes 6 photos, which is the one I ordered. Sweet Pix makes a great gift idea and because they ship to military bases is a creative way to send a piece of home to your service member.
