I like taking pictures. Here is what I don’t like, organizing the photos that I’ve taken. And, unfortunately, this little unlike of mine applies to both the printed and digital picture. The truth is, and likely with you too, I don’t print out as many pictures as I used to. An while this makes for a bit less mess in my hands, I more than make up for it with all of my digital pictures that have happily cluttered up my computer and phone (confession : there are currently 1,023 photos on my iPhone at the moment).
View the Slideshow above to see how LA LA LOVELY took control and organized her photos.
A few months ago, I decided to take control of my digital life and organize my photos. iPhoto was bogging down my computer and I could no longer take it. I spent an entire week going through thousands and thousands of photos. I created a little system for myself to help stay on track after the initial clean up.
And if you find your self a photographer with no prints to show for your work, than I encourage you to get your hands on some of your lovely photos.
1. Print some of your Instagram shots. I just ordered a bunch from Pinstagram (I’ll share more on that later).
2 . Get a Instax Mini (pictured above) a.k.a the modern day Polaroid. It’s one of my fave things. You can get one here.
3. Find some old photos and arrange them in modern way. I found these old square photos from a trip to Europe that my mom took when she was 16. I think I’m going to frame them or tack them up just like they are pictured. I love the washed out look and I love even more that they are a special memory and have a story to tell.
