Organizing and Displaying Your Family Photographs

Last month I hosted a mother’s night out event for North Central Parenting Group and gave a short presentation about how to organize and display your family photographs.  The women who attended gave great feedback and made it apparent that the number of images they have of their children is overwhelming and causes them stress. … Continue reading Organizing and Displaying Your Family Photographs

Create a Visual Legacy

In this age of digital everything, it is very rare for families to actually have printed photographs, let alone those of heirloom quality.  We take photographs with our phones, and then our phones are lost or stop working and those images are lost.  Maybe we take photographs with actual cameras and then fail to download… Continue reading Create a Visual Legacy
