Best Way to Organize Photos: Work with a Pro!

Share article

If you're like most people, organizing your photos is a project you'll get to someday.

But someday never comes.

You are not alone. Most people have photos everywhere. You might have printed photos stored in envelopes, bags, albums, and boxes. And digital photos located on phones, and on media cards, floppy drives, CDs, and USBs tucked away in drawers. You might also have digital pictures on external hard drives, and on an old computer. And don’t forget “the cloud” — photos in cloud storage sites like Google Photos or Apple iCloud or buried in old email. The best ones might even be on photo retailer sites like Snapfish and Shutterfly — or posted on Facebook and Instagram.

And you might be the keeper of rare, one-of-a-kind older family pictures in photo albums, on slides in carousels, and on 38mm film and VHS tapes.

Every family needs a photo keeper to keep memories accessible.

Hidden among your ever-growing collection of photos are some real “keepers”, like this 75 year old, 7-second video of my parents dating, clipped from an old movie — and shared on my mother’s 95th birthday!

You know what your keepers are. They are the pictures that document important family events or showcase a much-loved relative you don’t want your kids to forget. They are the photos that make you smile with a memory, fill you with pride, or laugh with a funny family story.

These pictures are the illustration of your family history. And once you have them organized, you’ll be able to give easy access to family members who always turn to YOU for treasured photos. Plus, you’ll find photos easily to make fun and meaningful gifts for birthdays, graduations, weddings, and holidays.

The Photogifters COMPLETELY understand your problem and have an easy solution.

A client recently told us: “My college roommate ended our call yesterday by saying, ‘I shouldn’t be talking with you – I should be organizing my photos!’  I laughed but she hit a chord. Knowing the chaos of my own photo “organization” I shared her guilt — and understood her paralysis.  Organizing my family’s photos feels overwhelming. There are printed photos and digital files in lots of different places. I’ve started and stopped SO MANY times. I just can’t seem to get it done. Yet, if I don’t do it, who will?
