Quote of the Month

"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in its entirety..."

~Ansel Adams

Hi there!  


Managing all of the photos you've collected is not easy. There are picture frames to update, printed photos to scan, and there are memories to share.

And then where do you share them? Options include Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, Picasa, iPhoto and so many more. You can also dish them out in an e-card, greeting card, email or text.

Exhausted just thinking about taking the plunge to get your photos organized? Well don't be. You have M2O's team of two on your side!

Watch our latest video to learn more about the basics. Then read the article below to figure out ways to avoid getting distracted during your organizing projects. Join us on Facebook and you'll be clued into all kinds of other cool organizing tips that you can use.

To entice you, we've established a special offer for July that gives you 30% more pages in your photo book, created by M2O.
Avoiding Distracting Organizing
3 Ways to Stay on Track

Almost anyone can get distracted while organizing their personal belongings. Some get more distracted than others, but when you're dealing with photos, it's easy to go astray.

Coming across pictures of old friends (not to mention your own face) sure is fascinating, after all! Going through these images leads to recollections and stories which can be oh-so tempting to explore.

To avoid as many diversions as possible,
follow some simple steps.

Set goals for yourself. Start the timer and tackle one section of pictures. Try to get all of them sorted in the allotted time. Take another stack and repeat, but this time try to do it in less time.

Isolate yourself. Turn off your electronic devices and send the kids to play at Grandma's house. Shut yourself into a clutter-free room and only surround yourself with the task at hand (and maybe some good tunes).

Hire a professional organizer. Having a professional on hand for your organizing means a non-biased opinion on what should stay and go plus expertise on how to get it done most efficiently.

An Aperture to Remember 

By Guest Blogger: Lindsey J. Kunz 



Pictures capture a moment of time representing something significant in our life. These snap shots are often stored and displayed in a photo album: a collection of memories that tells a story. Pictures walk observers through every detail, from candid karaoke moments to reunited friends bonding once again. These memories personalize your album and tell a story about your life. Always consider the details when constructing a photo album. Here are some focal points to consider.

Everyone always wants to know if they are "the worst we've ever seen." Actually most people share the same challenges.

With pictures, one common concern is having too many unedited images on too many different devices. We will actually collect all of your pictures from all your different devices and compile them in one place.

Then we can go through and edit out any duplicates or fuzzy shots. Taking only the chosen few, we can finally construct a photo book that really sparkles.

It is our pleasure to make small steps, like these, for our clients so living is a more organized and efficient experience for them every day. It's the small things that add up to something monumental, after all.

As always, we welcome your questions and comments, so please feel free to email us or contact us through our website. Thank you for your referrals and support!
