About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I love to help people preserve their family memories. I organize printed photos, and digital photos. Many of my clients ask me to scan their family photos to save them for future generations. I do all the work in house and do not send anything to a third party.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy helping people get their precious memories out of the boxes and back into their lives. There are so many ways to showcase your photos and I would love to help you! The best thing I like is to see and hear the great feedback from a client that was happy with their project! I get to meet lots of people through this process and help them to sometimes deal with memories that may not be happy ones, but they end up loving the items done for them when we are finished.

    Sue was completely professional in every aspect, from the initial meeting to delivery of the final product. Quality work for a very fair price. I would highly recommend her for any size project you might have.

    A photo cutting board that was a huge hit with three people I gave it to. Sue is a professional and always gets the best job done.

    It has been a pleasure in working with Sue on all of my photo projects. I have hired Sue a few times to capture vacation photos in a hard cover book form. The books are amazing. She is excellent on figuring out what is best way to capture the pictures and which medium to place them in. She is very organized, gets projects done in great time and is patient. I have many more projects we will be doing in the future as well. I highly recommend Sue for your photo organization needs. I might add that she has many great workshops available for businesses, organizations, church groups or even individuals.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The most important thing is to talk in person/phone with them to see what type of project they have. Ask them their timeline. Ask how many photos do you have to scan (if a scan job). I will not quote until I have actually seen the items they are talking about. Ask them their budget.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a member of APPO (The Association of Personal Photo Organizers) which is a world organization. They have great training we go through and encourage us to take additional classes to keep up with technology.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I charge $40 per hour with a 2 hour minimum for smaller jobs. For larger jobs (scanning thousands of photos) the fees are different because of the volume of photos and the large amount of time required for the project.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was retired from corporate america and had been a Creative Memories consultant, but enjoyed digital rather than traditional scrapbooking. So I decided to start my own business after much thought.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Clients who had boxes of photos they wanted to get scanned and give copies to other family members. Those that just wanted to have a memory book made. During the holidays many want personalized gifts like: ornaments, calendars, mugs, glass cutting boards, key chains, totes and many other items.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Typically the scan jobs I do can last months because of the huge volume of items, but some jobs are smaller and can take a much shorter period of time.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the provider is trustworthy. Will they hand deliver the finished project. What extra charges do they charge. Are they doing the work 'in house' and not sending them to a third party.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What type of project are they wanting. What is their budget. What is the timeline. When exactly does it need to be done.
