I am eager to help you tackle that photo project!
I’ll be honest, getting your photos organized is time consuming. It’s probably a mess that has been many years in the making. You might not be excited about spending hours on the computer. If you have prints to scan, doing it yourself means buying and learning how to use a scanner. And there are so many programs and websites to pick from but which ones can you trust with your precious photos? What I can offer is my experience in making these types of decisions and my efficiency because I’ve invested in training and professional tools to streamline the process of organizing photos. It still takes time because all the automation available today is not perfect and a human eye is needed to ensure that your photo collection is handled correctly. I do really like working on computers (love/hate relationship with scanners) and I promise I will treat your photo collection as if it were my own.
I am happy to offer a free initial consultation to talk about your photo project. These phone calls typically take 15 minutes.
If we are in agreement that I’m the right person to help you with your lifetime of memories, we will begin with a Discovery Session where we will discuss your collection and talk about your goals in detail. I then will prepare a written plan for your entire collection, identifying the areas that need the most immediate attention and I will often suggest breaking a large project down into phases.
I offer all of my clients the option of phone or Zoom online consultations and I can work remotely on your computer for some digital organizing projects. Regarding physical items, if you live in southeastern Wisconsin or as far west as Madison, I will pick up your items and return them when I am done digitizing them or you can drop them off at my home. All payments will be collected in advance using an online payment method. During this time of social distancing, I will quarantine your items in my home for 3 days prior to working with them and I recommend you do the same after you receive them back. For remote clients that are interested in digitizing services, I recommend mailing items to me using UPS with signature required.
I perform all photo scanning in-house using professional equipment and this service is performed at my hourly rate with no additional per-scan charge. My hourly rate for all photo organizing work is $75 per hour and payment is required in advance in order to reserve time on my schedule. A discounted rate of $60 is available for those that wish to purchase blocks of 10 hours in advance.
For an additional fee, I also can provide a range of items that you may be interested in to protect and enjoy your collection, including archival storage boxes, external hard drives, online photo gallery subscriptions, backup hardware and software, photo management software, and luxury photo albums.
All pricing is subject to change.
