Photos have meaning. But most of us look at a photo as something that is taken and then almost immediately forgotten. A picture is a just a picture. No big deal. But that philosophy couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ve gotten in the habit of taking pictures because we think we should. We want to capture special moments but no real thought goes into what we are wanting to capture and why. Thus they become an afterthought and useless.
However, photos are treasures. More valuable than silver and gold. They’re history. Life-changing. Empowering. Memories long forgotten. Confidence builders. Love. Laughter. Tears. Stories. Personalities. Relationships. Powerful. Legacy. Who we are! And who came before us that helped make us who we are.
As a Personal Photo Organizer and owner of Shoebox Photo Scans LLC, preserving pictures and personal stories is my specialty. Bringing back the value and impact that photos have in our lives is my lofty goal.
This blog is to share with you anything and everything about photos that will help you appreciate, preserve and share your family stories and history through not only photos but oral and visual methods as well.
This is my first attempt at a blog, so I welcome your suggestions on topics you’d like to learn more about. Feel free to share your stories and ideas as well from which we can all benefit.
Thanks for stopping by!
