4 Reasons To Hire a Professional Photo Organiser

4 Reasons To Hire a Professional Photo Organiser

how photo organisers can help sort your photo collection

In our line of work we hear things like:

“I could do this myself”

“I know I could do this on my own but I just can’t motivate myself to get started” or

“there are too many options I don’t know which one is right for me”.

Because many people believe they have the skills to complete a task themselves, there is also an associated sense of guilt.  They are thinking “I should be able to get this project done”.  They are embarrassed that they long to hire someone to do it for them.  I remember the first time I hired a cleaner for the house.  You should have heard the song and dance I made about how busy I was and how I really COULD clean the house myself, how apologetic I was about my Joe Average house hold mess.  I won’t even get started on the wife/mother guilt that I laid on myself.  I will tell you though about the relief once I gave myself permission to let that responsibility go, the sweet release of the burden that would allow me to focus my energy on my growing family and a business I loved, was uplifting.

You hire a landscape gardener to advise on planting or design and help keep the lawns in check, or a tutor to unravel complicated math problems with the kids.  There is no shame in engaging a professional to help you with your photo life management.  Most people are unable to put a monetary value on their life’s memories so why not invest in getting help to ensure that they are used, enjoyed and protected.

Here are 4 reasons why we think you should hire a Professional Photo Organiser:

  1. You are busy:  Life is chaotic!  We are all at different stages of life and everyone one of those stages comes with high demands on your time.   It is perfectly reasonable to not get through the basic household chores and errands, let alone a special project (no matter how important it might be).  How often do you have a basket of washing to put away? We have dedicated ourselves to helping and are working 7 days a week to provide solutions.
  2. You are overwhelmed and scared: The elephant just seems so huge and you don’t know where to start eating it.  Metaphorically you are scared that eating such a large elephant will make you full to bursting and you are scared that trying to work on a large project will crush you.  We can help identify a clear process to suit your unique needs and put you on the path to freedom.
  3. You are confused by choice: You know the old saying a Jack of all trades the Master of none.  When there are too many options or solutions you become confused by what might be right for you and of course you can’t be expected to be skilled in all areas.  Plus you recognise that you don’t really want and unskilled indecisive ‘Jack’ to be held responsible for your priceless memories.  We can demystify all the solutions and ascertain what is right for your individual needs.
  4. You need accountability:  Similar to engaging a trainer or coach to motivate you to achieve fitness and sporting goals a professional photo organiser can hold you accountable for your organising goals.

Your story matters.  Your photo collection tells that story.  Don’t let guilt or fears prevent you from doing something to preserve and protect your precious memories.  Check out our Resources Page and download our eBook or other checklists, check for upcoming events or contact us for a one on one session.

We make it our business to make your wishes come true.

    So true! Trying to organise all those digital and print photos can be overwhelming, especially knowing what technology to use. Definitely a job best left to professionals!
