One of the wonderful things about a great celebration is going over it again and again. And that means we photograph them. But, unfortunately, many of us stop there and become overwhelmed with the mountain of pictures. And the age of digital cameras and video recorders merely compounds the problem. Sorting them and putting them into some kind of usable format can feel daunting. Never fear! Cathi Nelson, professional photo organizer is here to help. Cathi will be sharing some of her hints and tricks for crawling out from under the pile and creating some terrific albums. And if you still don't see a path out or you just want some help she'll be telling us about a new profession that can save us from our digital nightmare.
