I love old photos. This is me around age 2. Peep that Strawberry Shortcake shirt. As the family preservationist, I’ve been entrusted with scanning, essentially, our family’s history in photographs. Admittedly, I do this scanning in spurts, then I move on to something else. In the back of my mind, though, is a constant nagging that something is going to happen to these images before I get a chance to scan them. And, honestly, I had left some of my grandparents’ photos out on my desk with a glass of water more than a foot away and Aden spun around in my office chair, knocked into the desk, and the glass fell over and soaked some of those photos. I was able to dry them without any major damage, but a couple are slightly curled or warped now. I have guilt about that, and it was a major reminder of my responsibility in holding this role. It is such a tedious process, and I get burned out, but I also have to be diligent in protecting these images — both in scanning them and saving those scans in several places, and in keeping the unscanned images safe from harm until I can get to them. . . . . . . #fam#familyos #pre#preservationist #scannedslide #scannedfilm #familymemories #protectyourphotos #family #memories #film #slidefilm #childhood #childhoodmemories #humboldtcounty #trailerparkkid #brokenscreen #measakid #mychildhood #scanyourphotos #scanningphotos #saveyourhistory #protectingmemories #protectyourmemories #preservation #familyhistorian #genealogy #genealogyphotoaday #genealogist #historian #80s #80sfashion

Nine years ago today, I was scanning family slides. I didn’t have a quality scanner at the time and the slides have deteriorated over the years. This was me THIRTY years ago. I’m always grateful that my parents took many photos of us. As a kid, some of my favorite activities were family slide viewings and browsing (and organizing!) family photo albums. I’m also grateful that I have that preservationist nature within me. These images may have been completely lost at some point if I hadn’t felt called to protect them. I am a major advocate for printing your photos, but also of having digital back-ups. Also: I miss feeling this playful and silly. . . . . . . . . . #chi#childhoodries #childhood #printyourphotos #backupyourdata #protectyourmemories #the80s #80sbaby #mynameismama #cameramama #clickinmoms #clickmagazine #letthekids #80sfashion #memories #35mmslides #slidefilm #filmscan #photographer #pho_mom_grapher #momstagram #momsofinstagram #instamom #preserveyourmemories #preservation #memoirsofmotherhood #motherhoodrising #uniteinmotherhood #fridayintroductions
