If you are anything like me, you have shoe boxes crammed with photos. In no particular order. Shoved in a closet. Stuck on my hard drive. I wouldn’t even know where to begin to start the sorting, the filing, and the organizing. It’s all too overwhelming for me. I would get caught up in the memories and would be so distracted.

I tried scrapbooking, both physically and digitally. It was fine for a hot minute but then I lost interest.

I tried arranging the photos into albums as soon I got them. This worked but when you order hundreds of picture at a time, it gets tedious and that means I get bored.

For now, I have even given up on printing out pictures all together. Lame, I know.

But thankfully,I have found that there are professionals out there to help me {and you} with this massive problem that I have.

Enter, Appo, the Association of Professional Photo Organizers.
