10 Apr Your photos are like buried treasure
Last year someone told me that as a professional photo organiser I was like a pirate hunting for buried treasure and the treasures we helped uncover are precious photo memories. It was something that really appealed to me so I dug out this old snap of me as a pirate at my scavenger hunt themed hen’s party to share with you.
Like any pirate worth his salt would tell you, a good treasure map is essential when you are searching for hidden treasure, so we created this list as your treasure map. It is not only a guide to where you might look but what you are looking for as your photo treasures come in different shapes and sizes.
