Digital Photography for Busy Women: How to Manage, Protect and Preserve Your Favorite Photos was written specifically because it seems that today’s digital photographer needs a guide to help her through the process of managing and protecting her digital photographs. Just copying pictures to a cheap CD isn’t enough to make sure you can pass along your life stories.  You need to take specific actions on a regular basis.  A little effort now can save you heartbreak down the road.

Close your eyes and picture your most favorite photographs.  Relive that memory in great detail and revel in the flood of wonderful emotions that wash over you from that experience.  Now imagine those photographs are lost forever, never again to be viewed and enjoyed.

A Coming Crisis…

Did you know that you’re more likely to lose your pictures in a hard drive crash than in a flood or fire?  While we often hear stories of people fleeing natural disasters with their precious photo albums in tow (and we’ve had such an event in our own family), photo industry experts indicate that nature isn’t the biggest threat.  It’s the equipment that you currently use to safeguard all your images.

In fact, Kristy Holch, founder of Infotrends (one of the premier industry analyst companies in the U.S. ) sees a real crisis on the horizon.  “Our fear is that consumers will take wonderful digital photos, but those photos will be lost to future generations. At InfoTrends, we feel that it’s a very real possibility that there will be a 3 - 5 year gap in the personal photos of families around the world, as the photos taken between the years 2002 - 2007 are lost for lack of simple, foolproof archival mechanisms.”

That’s right.  By not taking specific steps to protect your pictures, you are at risk of losing several years of your most sacred photographs.  Fortunately, there’s a new guide to help you through every step of the process.

Get Help Now – Before It’s Too Late!

Written in a style designed to respect today’s busy woman and her time (much of this book was written with my own three small children underfoot), Digital Photography for Busy Women outlines and discusses the most common topics regarding digital storage and preservation.  Each chapter includes a short fiction scene that highlights a common issue, tips and trivia are woven throughout each chapter, and every section includes interviews and guidance from some of today’s most respected authorities in the field.  And it’s all written in a way that won’t put you to sleep or require an acronym-decoder ring.

In addition, you’ll be introduced to the FRAME™ Method, a specific process created to help you better manage, protect and preserve your favorite photographs.  The FRAME™ method clearly explains each step and a checklist is included in the book (it is also available for download on this site).

Your Memories…. Your Responsibility…

You are now solely responsible for the care and safety of your digital pictures.

Time is a funny thing; we all need more and yet we all have the exact same amount.  There are twenty-four hours in each day.  It is up to each of us to decide how to best use the hours we have.   Let this book help you protect one of your most valuable assets and create a system that will save you countless hours in the future. 

Please make your pictures a priority.  I can’t promise that every single step of the way will be a snap.  I can only promise that the results will be worth it.

The moment may have passed but the memories will remain.

Share Your Stories.

Protect Your Pictures.

Leave a Legacy.
