A monthly challenge to help you unravel your own family photos and get them organised!
If you’re anything like me your phone is jam packed full of photos of your little ones. You might have a camera lying around with a ton more images on there ready to be imported and sorted through. You likely have hard drives full of images or a computer that is running super slow because it’s got a million more images stored on there that you haven’t had time to dive into and organise just yet, but it’s on the list!
The list is long and our days are pretty full lookimg after our little ones, I totally get it! Organising our personal images often keeps getting pushed down the list until we realise we are swamped in photos and not quite sure where on earth to start to get things sorted and so we never really do.
That was me to a tee, so a few years ago I decided that I wanted to get on top of my personal images and make them accessible to my family and get them off my dusty hard drives and onto my walls and into photo books my little ones and I can enjoy!
These are our memories, our stories. This is the legacy that we are leaving for our own families to pass on and leaving behind a crazy mess of images stored in a million places isn’t fun for anyone.
I need to keep myself accountable and the trick is spending a little bit of time each month intentionally getting my photos organised so I thought some of you might like to join me each month! There is no better time to start than right now, especially heading into a brand new decade!
So here we go, the monthly Story Keeper Photo Challenge #iamthestorykeeper
How the challenge works
~ Each month I will pop into your inbox in the first week of the month with an email about carving out an hour or two of your time to dive in and organise all your images from the previous month.
~ I will walk you through the steps you need to do to get your images organised for the previous month plus provide you with some handy tips you can follow to keep on track.
What we will be doing together each month
1 – Organising your phone photos
2 – Organising your camera images
and if you would like to dig a little deeper you can also join me in ~
3 – Writing a life journal entry for the month
4 – Fill out a page of a memory keeping book for your children
How long will this take each month?
You can smash this out in an evening. All you need to do is put aside a few hours each month of dedicated time to sit down and get your images organised and your family story recorded.
The end goal of this challenge
~ At the end of the year you will have folders of your best images from the year. These images will be culled, edited and sitting in a folder ready for you to create something with! This is the fun part and honestly it it a thousand times easier to sit down at the end of the year and make a photo book of the year, a slideshow of the year and something similar as all your images are there ready to go!
But what about the backlog?
Now I know you’re probably thinking that you have a HUGE backlog of images already that are all over the place and you should get to organising those first. Well I think that setting up a good habit and sorting system for what you are creating today is the best place to start and when you have a handle on that we can then dive in and tackle the previous years of images.
I’m currently working on a much more in-depth course that will be coming your way in 2020 that will help you do just that. It will walk you through how to unravel your years of photos, create a great system for the future and then will focus on helping you see the beautfully mundane stories in your everyday life and how to harness light and the camera you have to capture these moments in a beautful way! Cannot wait to get this into your hands!
