Pictures from the Pandemic — and Saving Your Photos

It’s been a busy week. Earth Day. Ramadan. My new online photo organizing course. More about that down below. And today is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, which made me just LOL since it’s day 42 of our coronavirus pandemic lockdown so, yeah, my kids have been coming to work with me pretty regularly lately.

We now have five desks for four people chez moi. The fact that each kid now has “an office” is part of what’s keeping me sane. While I’m still hearing about adults who are jockeying for a home office that isn’t also known as the kitchen island, I thought maybe some of these kid-flavored office tips might help your family.

My little one is camped out in our living room, right next to my office, which makes it easy to offer her immediate tech support.

We’ve set up a few things to help her stay organized:

1.  A wicker bin turned on its end is a neat locker for notebooks. Take Your Child to Work Day During the Pandemic (4)


2. A place for pens, calculator, her penguin timer, and for some unknown reason, a measuring tape. An empty tissue box makes a great mini-locker for the small things.


3. Easy access to an electrical outlet. Today’s kids are wired!Take Your Child to Work Day During the Pandemic


We have to remind them to put everything in their room or desk at the end of the day, but even that’s getting to be more routine now.

One of my favorite thing about my daughter’s home office is how she’s made it her own. A few pillows and a flashlight add that je ne sais quoi!

I’ve been trying to remember to take photos during our stay-at-home time. Are you taking fewer photos than normal, too? Hopefully, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I’ll want my girls to have proof to show their kids. No, really, they sent us home from school one day, and we didn’t go back for seven months! 

While you are in lockdown, after you organize your closets and cabinets, it might finally be time to organize your photos.

Many people have time at home that they may never have again, so I accelerated our efforts to bring you my Save Your Photos with SORT and Succeed online class. The response to this class has already been overwhelming–and humbling–for us. We know you can’t wait to get the inside scoop on how to organize your print and digital photos, along with your tapes, films, and keepsakes.

Our favorite photo projects are the ones with happy tears. We love to make people cry.

I can find a reason to organize anything, whether it’s your home or office, but organizing your photos might be the most important organizing project you’ll ever finish.

You’ve told me that what you really want is an expert to show you:

  • the most efficient way to turn your old albums and loose photos into an organized, dated collection
  • the tips to very quickly find dates for old photos
  • the best way to store photos
  • how to get your old print photos into your digital collection
  • what to do with things like negatives, VHS tapes, reel films, and keepsakes
  • how to find all of your digital photo files
  • where to put all of your digital files
  • how to backup your photos
  • how to create a really great annual photo book

..and so much more!

This online course is pre-recorded, so you can watch and listen anytime right from your phone or computer. It includes detailed how-to videos in bite-sized chunks, between 4-15 minutes each, and over a dozen handouts to print at home. And you have a direct line to me with any questions this course doesn’t answer.

    Hi Darla, I’d love to take sort and succeed. Two questions before I sign up: what if I need to acquire additional items … for example external hard drive or subscription to a particular service? That question folds into # 2. Once paid, can I do the class at whatever pace I need to acquire tools and really learn and
    Practice?? Does my class accessibility expire?

    1. Darla

      Hi, Ellen, both good questions. The class does outline supplies that are often needed to organize photos. At a minimum, you will need an external hard drive. If you don’t already have one, the info about what you need will be in the class.

      The course is pre-recorded and self-paced, so you can take it whenever you want and finish at your own pace. The short answer is that you’ll have access to the course forever. The longer answer is that t will be available on this platform for as long as we use this tool, and even after, your access would move to a new platform, or you would have the opportunity to download the course material.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Darla
    Your emails are always amazing, but this one
    with your daughter’s home office, tent included,
    deserves a prize🏆. Thank you for your always excellent content.
    I need to do everything you describe above, but I have several other deadlines and commitments. So I would just want to focus on 1 photo goal: photo book for 2018-2019.
    I want to start photo book May 1 and be done by July 1. All our pix are on our 2 phones. Maybe/about how much time per week would this photo book take?

    1. Darla

      Hi, Annalee, thanks for the compliment. We are including a resource in the course called “How long might it take?” How long it will actually take for YOU will depend on a bunch of different factors, including the size of your photo archive and your comfort level with your phones and computer technology. For those of you who would like to complete the photobook over a few days or a long weekend, that is possible.

    My daughter and sons are using tape measures daily. They must be taking the same class. Have a safe day!

    How many sessions are in the actual class and how long are each sessions. I’m signing up but would like to have some idea on time management when dealing with the class. Thank you…:)

    1. Darla

      Sally, thanks for asking. There are 5 modules, and each module includes roughly about an hour of recorded content, broken up into smaller lessons of between 4-15 minutes. They also each include handouts. You can spend as much time as you want re-listening to each lesson as you work on your project. I look forward to seeing you in the class.
