3 Ways EVERY Photographer Should Back-Up Their Images happy hour with hope

For Photographers

Every photographer’s worst nightmare is having a technical malfunction that causes us to lose all of our client’s images…and IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME. Ya’ll, when I was in my first year of business, my laptop hard drive completely crashed. I was so young and new to the world of photography that I had no IDEA how important backing up your images was…and I lost everything. It was about 5 portrait sessions worth of images that I had to refund and re-shoot…but it could have been SO MUCH WORSE.


Today’s video breaks down the 3 ways that EVERY photographer should be backing up their images. I’m teaching you exactly what to do so you don’t end up like me!
