If you're like most, you have photos everywhere. In our exciting digital world, we have the ability to take thousands of photos each year allowing us to capture so many memories. But does it feel like it's getting out of hand or beginning to feel a bit overwhelming? On top of that, you probably have years worth of photos in albums or frames all over your house from the pre-digital age. And if you're lucky, you even have bins of loose photos and bins of old albums from your parents or even grandparents. You love having all these memories but never look at them because they are in random albums, scattered loosely in boxes or worse on old slides, negatives or film reels that are impossible to view in this day and age. You'd love to be able to look at your collection more often and even share them with family and friends. You also worry from time to time about their safety. What if there was a fire or flood? Losing all those memories would be devastating to most families. You've wished for years that you had them all organized and safe and keep promising yourself you'll tackle it one day but you don't know where to even begin. So, another year goes by, then another. Does this sound like you? If so, we can help. We have a wholeistic system that bring everything together in one nice beautifully organized, searchable, safe and shareable solution. Whether you have everything we mentioned above or just have one part of the above, we have a solution and budget for you. Check out our 5 step process.
1. Gather & Sort
The first step is to gather all your photos, both printed and digital and bring them to one central location. This is where the fun begins.

3. Backup and Relax
Can you relate?
My photos feel disorganized. I have photos on my phone, on Amazon, my computer, and on old CD/DVDs. How do I get them all in one place? It takes forever to find just one.
I wish it was easier to find photos. Every time I want to show a friend a photo, I can never find what I'm looking for. It's overwhelming.
I wish it was easier to share albums of photos with family and friends.
I have thousands of photos. How can I afford someone to organize it for me?
If you can relate to any of these questions, we can help!
4: Apply the Magic
5. Create, Share, Enjoy & Maintain
So, you have this beautifully organized photo collection with everything in one location. It's sorted, searchable, and safe but how will you share it with others? We can design and print a yearly family album and think everyone should do this! But what about a digital photo collection featured on a searchable, sharable family website including your own family crest or logo? A beautifully designed website that houses all your photos from generations past plus digital current. A website that will allow you to create and share certain galleries with family and friends but keep most photo galleries private? Or what about designing a custom slide show for your daughter's graduation?
We have so many ideas we are almost giddy. Let us put you on a future proof platforms that will last generations. Here are a few more examples:
Printed Scrapbooks * Digital Albums * Custom Family Website * Online Galleries * Plus Many More
This is where the true magic begins. Our average customer has close to 100,000 photos in their collection but finding just one can be a frustating challenge. Now that we have all your digital photos, have scanned in all printed photos, slides, negatives and converted your film and old video, we are ready to apply our magic. We start with facial recognition and metadata which are key to any digital organizing project. Our pro series software allows us to add facial recognition to your photos, as well as dates, events, photo specific keywords including names, activities, vacations, places, hobbies, birthdays and much more.
When we are finished, you will have a beautifully organized photo collection. So organized, you'll be able to go to one location on your phone or computer and easily find that photo of your son many years ago in that "red jacket" standing on that "bridge" while eating that "ice cream" cone. Your photos will be safe and secure for generations to come and be ready to share and enjoy!
Enjoy your photos again!
