The modern way to manage your photos. 


Your photos are a hot mess!

We get it. Life is busy! You love capturing your family’s everyday moments with photos and videos. It’s never been easier with a mobile camera by your side 24/7. But now? Your camera roll is out of control!

Does any of this sound familiar?

You have thousands of photos on your phone, computer and various devices but can’t find the ones you love, easily. 

You keep adding more storage to make room for all the photos and videos you keep taking. 

You love photos and stories as a way to document your kids’ lives but you don’t have a clue where to start. 

You are overwhelmed by all the choices for software and cloud storage and struggle to find the best option for your family. 

You aren’t sure your photos and videos are backed up properly and now your anxiety is through the roof!

You want access to your childhood photos but they're still trapped in boxes and bins at your parent’s house. 

Your parents are downsizing and they want YOU to take boxes of photos, albums and memorabilia off their hands.


Life is busy, your hands are full, and you don't have unlimited time - or money! - to figure this out alone.

That’s what inspired us to create this community.

The Pix & TALES STUDIO is a subscription-based membership community filled with people just like you. Memory keepers and shutterbugs who want to document their family life through photos and videos, but feel overwhelmed with their out-of-control camera rolls.  

It’s a place where you can learn how to organize, protect and enjoy your collection, at your own pace, in a like-minded community. No more googling or trying to figure this out on your own. 

We teach you how to manage your photos and videos with easy-to-follow tutorials, proven systems and expert advice. Plus, you’ll have access to professional support whenever you’re stuck. 

It's the modern way to manage your photos. 


The Studio will help you to:

Create a digital photo management plan that works for busy, budget-conscious families. Our Digital Roadmap utilizes FREE (or mostly free) tools to get you organized.

Prepare and manage a Family Archive that you can hand over to your kids one day. We show you how to protect, archive and future-proof your collection.  

Shorten your learning curve with easy-to-follow lessons that you can access from your mobile device 24/7. Imagine everything you need, located in one, easy-to-access location!

Troubleshoot your way through challenges that leave you feeling stuck or paralyzed. You’re not alone and we’ve seen it all. We’ll help you solve & overcome roadblocks.

Reach into your childhood collection to organize & digitize your parent’s memory collection. Learn how to work with printed photos, memorabilia and outdated media.
