Working with a local photo organizer provides much reassurance to families who want to digitize their pictures so they can share the memories with other members in their families. We handle your treasured photos and materials with care and expertise, most of the work is completed right in our studio, so you know your memories are safe. With a  local option  available, there is no reason to be overwhelmed by a photos mess!

Research suggests that the sheer volume and lack of organization of digital photos for personal memories discourages many people from accessing and reminiscing about them. (Linda Henkel, Psychological Scientist)

Rely Local is helping us to spread the word – they know that supporting local businesses helps stimulate our area’s economy especially in their focus area of city of Oak Creek and counties of Racine and Kenosha, Wisconsin – and creates a stable and vibrant community. We are grateful for their help in promoting our event.

Don’t Make This Mistake – Holiday Lights Tour!!!

Two Caveats to This Holiday Lights Post:

  1. Rosie Hartmann is the photographer of all these holiday light photos.
  2. I would have used my iPhone photos – her photos just look better! :  )

Fellow Pixologie gal Rosie and I hit the road on Wednesday night with my thirteen year old daughter Hannah to see the best holiday lights of Racine. And did we see some great light shows and displays!

Here’s a photo from the Jamestown Lights – one local couple who put on this show every year – and the holiday music they had on their “radio station” was fun. And, they have a view across a pond which makes it even more beautiful to watch.

10392434_757201394327270_6438302903027805729_n-2Here it comes the mistake I made. We had such a fun time, and I always try to take a photo with me or Rosie and my daughter when we go out together. And I forgot.

Then, two hours later, I made my husband get in the car with my eight years old son Alex, and we went to see it again! The photo of dad and son enjoying the light show? Doesn’t exist, because I forgot.

The moral of the story?

  1. The photos of the lights will never actually capture the full experience of seeing them in person.
  2. The best parts of the night were time spent with Rosie, Hannah, my husband and Alex. Unless I write the stories down from the evening, I will not remember them.
  3. Don’t forget to even take just one photo with your family when you are out doing something fun and taking photos of holiday lights!

Racine County Zoo Light Displays were beautiful and several blocks long – no photo of my daughter who loved all of it!

Jellystone Campground Christmas Celebration Light Show – over 15 million lights!!! We were blown away by all the magical things they did with lights. The photo above is just a snippet of an amazing half hour car tour through the grounds. Photo of my daughter, Rosie or I – who oohed and aahed the whole way through? Doesn’t exist!

Too often, as we help people sort through their photos, we see way too many pictures of scenery and too few of the family in the scenery. Our clients aren’t saving the majority of their scenery photographs. They want the photos of the people they were with.

So – I am thinking, okay, this weekend, we’ll get back in the car and I’ll get that photo of Hannah or Alex going to see the lights. (Yes, I know, it probably won’t even be a great one, in the dark with a flash, but I’ll have a photo of this new family tradition we started!)
