I’ve been taking digital images for 12 years and spent 2003-2009 storing them online through a totally credible (or I thought) print company. Well, this summer they went bankrupt overnight and all images are gone. GONE . Millions of images deemed “unrecoverable”with no one to look further. What!
I didn’t think I could be disheartened like I’ve been over losing J and I’s high school images (except the prints we have, thankfully), all of college, photos of grandparents who are now gone. The list goes on.
So, I’m committing one lunch break a week this fall to our personal images– the ones I take but that never get edited or properly stored because I’ve got so many fantastic clients. It’s a good problem to have, but I don’t want to lose anymore of our story.
So I’m asking– how do you store/organize personal images? Do you have a book company you love for small books (could probably fill a million but cant store them!)? How do you preserve your memories beyond a hard drive or a cell phone?
Living the irony of being in the most photographed generation who will have no proof in 50 years, changing that stat.
