Photo Organizing and Photo Storage Highlights of 2021

As 2021 winds down, I wanted to highlight key blog posts from this year,

My very first post this year was in March, focusing on my 26th anniversary as a photo coach. Not many people know what a photo coach is or does.

In this post, I describe how I didn’t do scrapbooking as my focus—even though that was the trend and it was so popular. Read where I got my foundation for my business as it stands now.

In the fall, I introduced three colleagues who work with me as photo coaches. Each one highlights a specific area of interest and they touch on:

  • Converting old media files to digital
  • Working with family members like aging parents, adult children and distant cousins
  • The importance of family history
  • Guaranteed photo storage for a lifetime plus 100 years
  • Photos as gifts
