Throughout your life you’ve taken photos and videos of who and what you love: your family, your pets, your vacations and more. But there’s no organization and they’re all over the place – on your phone and computer, in boxes and bags, in the basement, in the attic, on the walls, and even on old electronic devices and storage media.
If you’ve ever lost your phone, you know you care way more about the lost photos of your kids or grandkids than you do about the lost phone.
There’ve been times when you needed a photo for an event, or you just wanted to see it again. But whether it’s printed or digital, you can spend hours looking and still not find it.
Much of your children’s childhood is on home movies, video tapes or slides, and you can’t even view those anymore.
You may have even inherited photo memories from your parents or previous generations. As much as you value having them, that just made things worse!
You worry about losing photos to fire, flood or a computer crash. You worry about future downsizing or leaving a mess for your kids to clean up. Heck, you’re not even sure your kids want the photos.
You know you SHOULD do something about it, but you’re not sure where to start, and it all seems so overwhelming.
It doesn’t have to be like this.
I can help you access, enjoy and share your photo memories now as well as leave a meaningful collection for future generations.
Featured as the Photo Management Expert on
I believe that photos and memories from our past should enrich the present as well as inspire hope for the future.
I believe your photo and memory collection should bring you joy, not stress. After all, you took those pictures for a reason – you knew you wanted to savor those moments later and share them with others.
I believe that all you need are the right tools, resources and help to tackle your photo chaos once and for all and keep it under control going forward.
IMAGINE, FOR A MOMENT…
Imagine feeling only peace and joy when you think about your photo memory collection because you know that all your memories are backed up and stored off site so that they are safe in case of any disaster that might befall your home.
Imagine finding any photo you are looking for in a minute or two, whether you’ve gone all digital or kept your printed photos because your organizational system works with how you think.
Imagine having family movie nights, complete with popcorn, and laughing together over old times because all those important memories have been upgraded to modern formats.
Imagine knowing how to create meaningful photo gifts and books, quickly and easily – creating treasures for your treasured ones – to let them know how much they mean to you.
Imagine being able to leave a curated, meaningful collection for future generations that won’t add clutter to their homes and will pass on your traditions and legacy.

Hi, I’m Fancy
Since 2002 I’ve taught classes and workshops on organizing photos and creating meaningful photo albums. In the beginning it was all based on printed pictures, but as technology advanced, I adapted and taught about digital photo organizing and photo book creation. I loved teaching other family photo keepers how to create something that could be enjoyed in the present as well as be handed down through the generations.
Over time life got busier and I, as well as many of my clients, had less and less time to devote to memory keeping, yet our collections of photos and memories continued to grow. In 2014 my father became ill and I cared for him in his home in another state. Once he passed, I cleaned out his house and brought home at least 10 grocery sacks filled with photos still in the developer envelopes, my own childhood on slides, a few old photo albums, and a collection of digital devices and media that held photos and videos.
Since then I’ve taken what I already knew about photo management and combined it with new learning. I’ve been gradually turning my multi-generational, multi-media mess into a curated collection that I can enjoy now, share with extended family, and leave for my daughter and future generations.
