Have you ever wondered what a personal photo organizer does with her own family photos? Surely they are already perfectly organized, shared with the family and safely stored for generations to come.
As APPO founder Cathi Nelson likes to say “The cobbler’s children have no shoes.” Often the personal photo organizer is so busy organizing and preserving her client’s family treasures that her own photos go neglected. When she does have time to work on her own family photo collection, that’s when the magic happens.
We want to share with you some true stories of what a personal photo organizer does with her own family pictures with the time or the need arises. We hope you are inspired to start your own photo organizing project as well. Or call a Photo Organizer. We’d be happy to stop our project to work on yours.
