Have you ever had a crazy good reason to panic - thinking you may lose all of your precious pictures?
At almost every house where I have had the privilege of decluttering and organizing, I have come across physical pictures in drawers, cabinets and shoeboxes.
Well, that got me thinking. I desperately needed to educate myself on photo preservation and organization..... then offer this service to my own clients! So, about 8 months ago I invested in APPO (Association for Professional Photo Organizers - Yep! It's a thing. Cool huh?) and I purchased a super duper top of the line photo scanner.
I recently taught a workshop at the Madison Library. It covered the importance of having a plan for keeping our photographs (digital and physical) safe. We need a foolproof plan to keep our photos from being destroyed by water, fire or a downright wonky computer or cell phone.
I'm sure you're now wondering how to start getting your own photos protected and organized.
Step 1: You call or text me and let's talk about your current state of photos -No judgement here. I promise!
Step 2: Let's determine which kind of girl you are:
Show Me How To Do It. I Can Do It Myself- If this is you, you really should check out Miss Freddie's Back Up Bootcamp. It is an online course that she offers for a reasonable $49. I am an affiliate for her, but you need to know I wouldn't recommend her if I didn't think it was the best program for learning how to do it yourself. Miss Freddie's bootcamp is for digital photographs. I can still scan the physical pictures for you if you need that service.

For your video memories that need to be converted to digital, I highly recommend Laurie at Scan South. She is located here in Jackson so there will be no mailing it out of town! It is awesome. I am also an affiliate for her so please let her know I sent ya (there is no extra charge to you). I just think it is such a valuable resource right here in our own backyard! https://www.scansouthms.com/
Do It With Me- If this is more your style, then I can just pack up my computer, my portable photo scanner, and an cold Coke Icee and head to your house! We will tackle this together.
Do It For Me- If you are raising your hand and shouting, "Memememe", then guess what? I'll come pick up your memories and take care of it at my house. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Here's to making your memories last longer than your lifetime,
