SCAN PHOTOS SLIDES NEGATIVES ALBUMS
There are so many choices when it comes to choosing a vendor to scan your photos, slides, negatives, and albums. But the most important variable is quality of the digital output. I use the scan settings outline by the Library of Congress, attend global digital preservation conferences and follow their blogs to stay current on how institutions are supporting a digital collection. You're in good hands
ONSITE ORGANIZING OF DIGITAL PHOTOS
Just as double and triple prints were appealing once upon a time, so is the idea of taking more and more photos. Although space is affordable and accessible, it can be overwhelming to manage all those files. Together we will find the best photo program(s) to help you with the frequent management of your collection. Feeling comfortable with a process will encourage you to stay organized, share photos through email, create photo books, and perhaps even send a beautiful holiday card this season.

PHOTO AND VIDEO PROJECTS
I feel very fortunate to be invited to create custom projects for clients. Family photos books, photo walls, memorial slideshows. All of them are custom and beautiful.
ONSITE ORGANIZING OF LOOSE PHOTOS
PHOTO ALBUMS & MEMORABILIA
Whether you want to simplify your life, downsize, or just clean up I can help you get started. It never takes as long as we expect because we work together using a family tree or discussed categories to sort through the items to archive, pass on or... toss. With your direction, I take a subset of photos to scan and protect the originals in acid-free products. The project that has been forever looming over your head is finally done. With everything accessible in a digital format and the originals safely protected and labeled, the fun begins with sharing it all.
CREATION OF "CLOUD" ARCHIVES
After your collection is organized and scanned I will work with you to find the best online vendor to meet your needs. Whether you want to print, share, or create a link of photos from your reunion, I will make sure your experience is stress-free. (Documentation is provided at no additional charge.)
Whether you have been designated family archivist by choice (or default), I can support you. We will define a clear organization of the existing material and talk through software programs available for adding to the collection. Sharing your family history with others will be easier than you think!
SUPPORT WITH GENEALOGY RESEARCH
Do you have questions about how to email a photo? Wondered how to print a photo that has been emailed to you? Perhaps you would like advanced training with Photoshop? You dictate the level and type of training you need, and I will customize a training session just for you. (Documentation is provided at no additional charge.)
FILM AND VIDEO TRANSFERS
I love working with video. The quality of the transfers seems to get better each year as new tools are introduced. And with the ease of sharing video online, it encourages us to "capture the moment" with voice and movement, creating new memories.
