Members of The Photo Managers will provide free education to consumers looking to organize and preserve family memories as a remedy for challenging times during Save Your Photos Month.


The Photo Managers, a Connecticut-based educational community, announces its annual movement, Save Your Photos Month 2020, a public service outreach campaign developed to teach consumers how to preserve life’s irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents, in case of an unforeseen accident or disaster.

Throughout the month, The Photo Managers, in collaboration with its global member base, will present a robust agenda of classes created and presented by independent professionals and fellow members of their educational community. Save Your Photos Month is an annual campaign open to anyone interested in help managing their photos, in any format.

“Modern technology has turned our phones into cameras, ready to snap a photo or video at any moment,” said The Photo Managers Founder and CEO Cathi Nelson, a West Hartford resident. “But this quick and prolific content creation can also be a burden, creating more than we can adequately manage with the risk of losing precious memories in the process.”

Founded in 2009 as the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO) by Nelson, the name was updated in 2020 to better reflect the type of work that members provide clients.

This year Save Your Photos Month will present more than 45 short classes developed by photo Pros, covering topics such as “iPhone Photography Tips and Tricks,” “Cherishing Your Child’s Memories,” and “Tackle Your Family History.” These fun and engaging classes are a great way to focus on simpler times and happier memories during this challenging season.

“I’m always amazed at the catharsis our members’ clients experience in working with family photos,” said Nelson, “especially now in having to distance from family and friends, it’s a great time to revisit wonderful memories while gathering, organizing, safely storing, and showcasing them in new and interesting ways. It’s a form of therapy we can all engage in right now.”

The Photo Managers serves photo management professionals around the world, thousands of do-it-yourselfers, and legions of people who want to hire certified professionals to help manage their photos and family heirlooms.

The Photo Managers invite anyone interested in joining the free classes as part of Save Your Photos Month to visit the initiative’s website.
