What is a Photo Organizer?
Photo Organizers are dedicated, independent, small and home business owners who help you get organized and transform stores of photos into family treasures by creating photo books and displays. Many of The Photo Organizers are APPO Certified, meaning they are trained in the latest techniques for sorting, storing, and sharing photos and provide the best practices available in the industry.
What exactly is APPO?
The Association of Personal Photo Organizers – a growing and thriving network of professionals dedicated to telling our clients’ stories. Using images, words, and creatively designed photo books, scrapbooks, and more, Personal Photo Organizers are bringing cherished memories back into clients’ lives.
I have boxes of photos, how can you help me?
The first thing I will do is provide a free consultation in your home. The goal is to see how many photos you have, how they are stored and understand your goal and budget. I have scanning equipment for digitizing and all sorts of ideas for creating display items and gifts to celebrate your memories. Depending on your ultimate goal, we will create a plan to organize, preserve and share your photos and the stories and memories they represent.
I have 35mm slides, movie reels and VHS tapes, how can you help me?
Older media like this can be challenging – equipment to view slides, 8mm or 16mm movie reels and even VHS tapes is more and more difficult to find. These types of media can also deteriorate and become damaged if not stored properly. I can help you get them converted to digital and stored on archival DVDs so that you can more easily access and enjoy them.
I am a traditional scrapbooker, how can you help me?
Scrapbooks are a fabulous way to share the stories behind your photos – your family will enjoy looking through them again and again. Have you ever considered making a digital back-up of those traditional scrapbooks in case of a natural disaster like a flood or fire? I can scan your albums so that you could create a digital book to replace a lost or damaged scrapbook.
I have a child graduating this year, how can you help me?
I love helping moms with graduates! I will provide a free consultation to talk about what you would like to do and what your time frame and budget is. The range of products I can provide is limited only by your imagination and budget – invitations, thank you’s, guest books, life books celebrating the graduate, posters, slide shows and more! If you have time, desire and a limited budget, I can help you create your own digital projects in Heritage Makers Studio.
