Tips on Tuesday – Save Your Story…Sheila Hebert – Splendora, Texas Photographer

I have a few questions for you? 

  • How many pictures do you have on your phone? 
  • How many pictures are saved on your computer? 
  • Do you have images still in your camera that you haven’t download yet?
  • Any old external drives laying around that you have no idea what might be on them?
  • What about from that last vacation where you swam with dolphins and paid a crazy amount of money to purchase a CD? Are those safely backed up? {true story about the dolphin cd btw}.
  • When is the last time you printed a real picture?
  • Are you having an anxiety attack just thinking about all this???

I am!  Not because you have problems (well you might), but because I have problems.  I have way too many PERSONAL digital images that I’ve let get unorganized, unprinted, and the worst…un-backed up!

Notice I said “personal” and not “client”.  Rest assured those are more secure than Fort Knox.  So why then are my own digital pictures a mess?  It’s like the pot calling the kettle black.  Well, just like you I get busy with work & family and put it off until I have more time (is there ever such a thing).  And one big difference is I don’t pay myself lol.  Such a bad excuse, but it’s the truth.  It’s only fair to my clients who pay me to feel at ease knowing that I will take care & protect their precious memories.  Which I do!

But that doesn’t solve my personal problem – protecting my own precious memories.  No worries – I have a plan.  I use this plan when I help others organize their own digital & printed pictures.  I use the plan for my own digital images (when I’m on top of my game).  The plan takes a little bit of time (well, for some of us a lot).  But once we’ve put in the hard work up front, the plan becomes a monthly maintenance routine (or quarterly – depending how fast you accumulate digital pictures).

So stick with me over the next several weeks and I’ll take you through the steps.  I’m not going to lie and say this will be easy & fun.  Sorting through digital files is usually not the most exciting thing.  It does take a commitment of time.  But it doesn’t have to be completed all in one day.  Little by little, we’ll get through it all.  And you’ll be so happy you did.  Just imagine…all of your memories organized, safely backed up, and printed so that you can enjoy them for a lifetime.

Save your story, so you can tell it forever!
