I've recently been working on a photo book project for my mum for her 70th birthday which we celebrated late last month - Happy Birthday Mum! Today I wanted to give you a little peak inside that book and also go into a bit of detail about WHY we love Momento so much.
The acronym DPH is one professional photo organisers like us use frequently with our clients and our colleagues. But what exactly is it? How do you get one? Where do you put it? Why should you use one? Those are all great questions. As event managers in our past lives we love addressing the traditional project management type questions of WHEN, WHERE, WHO, WHAT and WHY, so let's apply those to this topic!
Recently someone contacted me to discuss how I could help them with their photo collection. They mentioned that they had just been on a 3 week holiday and had come home with 18,000 (yes thousand) photos from that trip. On hearing that number I knew instinctively that was too many!! Too many to store, too many to use and too many to enjoy. Surely this kind of digital photo overload could only be a burden. Just thinking about that number made me tired. So, I started to ponder and research how can I help highlight the importance of taking fewer photos.
For anyone that has ever outsourced a service there is often an associated feeling of guilt for not being able to do it yourself and hiring a photo organiser is no exception. So today I wanted to tell you about some of the reasons we think our photo organising clients are awesome and send a little love your way.
Recently we took the kids to an event called Obstacool as a family fun day out. Given it had been raining solidly for over a week I knew it was going to be a very muddy affair. With this in mind I decided to take our point and shoot camera (with a wrist strap) instead of juggling my phone for photos. If I am honest with myself I didn’t want to put my phone at risk of damage and determined that the camera could take one for the team if damages were to occur.
