Epson brings families together to celebrate treasured photographs for inaugural Family Photo Month

“Countless memories are stored in boxes and they are never talked about until there is a reason to dig them up. We don’t want these irreplaceable memories to be forgotten. With Epson Family Photo Month starting in May, we want to celebrate moms and dads and bring families together to rediscover, print and share treasured memories,” said mike isgrigVice President, Consumer Sales, Epson America.

On the occasion of the month of the family photo, Shaquille O’Neal and his mother Lucille O’Neal are featured in Epson’s Family Photo Month campaign, reliving and sharing memories, while creating new ones by scanning cherished photos together.
