Recently a friend hired me to organize her photos. When I picked up the photos they were all placed mixed up on these boxes and included photos from 1997 to today. I started by pulling all the photos out of the boxes and I began organizing them by year as you can see by the cardboard year markers I made to separate them. I have since started pulling out each year and organizing them by months. After that is done, I organize them by day as best I can. Some of her photos actually have dates printed on them which is very helpful. Some packages she had written dates on and others have absolutely nothing so I take hints by details in the photos themselves. Once I have them all in order, I will be placing them in photo books. My friend is so excited to see her photos in order and safe in a book, I can't wait for her to see them too!
