Hey mamas! We can’t believe we are more than halfway into November! That means TWO things: One, the holidays are right around the corner, and two, the New Year is right behind them! We love January around here, and the hope and excitement that comes with a new year - new vision, new goals, organizing, all the fun things! One thing that has been at the top of Jennifer’s goal list for 2020 is getting her pictures organized, backed up, and ready to begin making albums! And with that, we have a super awesome guest on today’s episode to help us all with just that! Our sweet friend, Kate, has been a guest on the show before! She chatted with us on episode 46, where we discussed the book, All You Need to Know About Raising Girls. And she’s back this time with all her expertise on PHOTOS! This can be an overwhelming project for a lot of us moms, both in getting started and in maintaining! She explains all the things we need to know about photo storage, external hard drives, “the cloud,” and albums. Annnnnd, she has an amazing ebook she created that you can find here, and has graciously given Mommin’ listeners a code for 25% off! This book is 61 pages, chock full of all the good information we talked about (and MORE), and the discount code you can use is MAE25. (That makes it $5.24!!! You literally cannot beat that.) If you purchase her ebook, you will also get access to a private Facebook group for ebook readers where you can ask questions and post ideas. She will also be offering a “book club” after the start of the year to slowly go through each section as a group. Jennifer will be in this group, so stay tuned for more details!Kate also mentioned in this episode that she has created a bundle of five photo presets to enhance your photos and make them stunning! You just need the Lightroom CC app and you can purchase them here AND use MAE25 again for 25% off of them as well! What?!?!She also mentioned her favorite external hard drive is the WD 2TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive. The Samsung T5 is the other one she mentioned on the episode and felt it was a bit too expensive right now.Kate is available for free consultations at any time at this link. She offers a host of services including backing up and organizing photos to a hard drive, uploading them to a cloud of choice such as Amazon or Google, putting all of your photos into one place (including extracting them off old hard drives, DVDs, etc), and deleting duplicates). This service is available for both local and remote customers. You can also find her on her website and Instagram.From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Kate is totally into Art for Kids Hub - a fantastic dad and son YouTube channel with tutorials for drawing!Courtney is totally into old “Baby Nathan” videos.
