You’ve entered a new phase of life.
The kids have left home and you have more time on your hands. Maybe you’ve experienced a loss. Somehow you’ve inherited boxes and boxes of family photos and you know that you want to preserve the memories they contain and you want to pass stories down to the next generation.
You may be overwhelmed by the years and years that have gone by and the amount of photos that have accumulated without any organization or purpose. You are downsizing into a smaller home and you don’t have the room for boxes and boxes of photo albums. Your extended family members look to you to be the family historian and are consistently asking about certain photos and when they can get copies. You’re not the best with technology but you are excited by its potential.
You don’t know how to start and you feel pressure that it’s time to make a decision about what to do.
If this person sounds like you, you may need a Professional Photo Organizer who can assess your needs and situation and come up with a plan that fits your time and budget.
Your project will focus on preservation of historical photographs through digitization and the creation of a basic family photo hub with folder architecture. Family stories will be uncovered in the process of getting organized and it’s up to you how deep you want to dive into preserving your family legacy. Sharing options will be discussed that range from USB keys with your family archive being distributed to loved ones or options like online sharing with third-party photo sharing apps or a private website portal that you can share your memories with family around the world.
Sharing your photos is one of the best end goals to have. Sharing memories makes connections with family stronger and more rewarding, but it’s hard to do when things are a mess. Preserving your photo collection keeps your story alive for the next generation.
