Why Hire a Photo Manager?

It may be tempting to tackle your photo collection yourself, but photo collection management may be more complicated than you think.

Here are several reasons why you should offload this task to the professionals instead of trying it yourself.

Turning a Family Cookbook into a Recipe Album

Many people create photo albums of vacations or wedding photos, but albums can also be used to encapsulate and share priceless family treasures like recipes. Cookbooks can span generations and are a special way to preserve memories made in the kitchen or gathering around a table with the people we love. We recently made a recipe album for a client who had a recipe book that was made by her mother and grandmother. Over the years, they cut and pasted recipes from magazines and newspapers as well as adding handwritten recipes. Our client wanted to share this treasure with her kids, nieces and nephews as a Christmas gift. We were able to preserve and replicate their recipe book for her family members to enjoy and continue to pass down to future generations. This was an extremely thoughtful and sentimental gift as well as a creative way to share a part of her mother and grandmother’s legacy with more of the family.

What to Do with Photos That Represent Difficult Memories

One of our favorite aspects of pictures is how they capture a specific moment that can help us hold onto a memory. However, some memories elicit difficult emotions, and photos of those memories can be challenging to know what to do with. We recently began a new project with a client in his 90s. While his life has been full of many happy memories, there are also difficult moments we are working to archive and organize in a way that makes him feel like we are accurately telling the story of his life while not putting too much emphasis on painful memories. Picture This Organized is here to help our clients navigate any sensitive memories associated with specific photos and create a plan for how best to store those photos.
