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.
