PixTalks: an hour of really useful information with lots of energy and examples

I love to share my enthusiasm for family photos & photostorytelling with EVERYONE.

Perfect for women's and men's groups, genealogy groups, memoir classes, parent and grandparent groups, book clubs…

 

The Topics:


Downsizing Your Family Photo Collection? How Fun... (No, Really!)


You've got a lot of pictures. Whether you're downsizing your home or just tired of photo albums hogging so much shelf space, it's time to downsize your family photo collection. Sacrosanct? Nope! A tiresome and overwhelming task? Absolutely not!


Spend an hour and learn how to enjoy downsizing your family photos: how to clarify what to keep, what to give away, what to throw away; how to preserve and share the keepers; how to involve your family and make it fun.
You'll leave with a new attitude and know exactly how to get started.


Photostorytelling 100


“Families that tell more family history stories have adolescent children that have higher levels of self-understanding and emotional well-being.”
- From the website for the Family Narratives Lab, Emory University, Robyn Fivush, PhD., Director


Dr. Fivush’s research shows that family storytelling matters, not just for adolescents but for children, too. Your family stories matter.


So do your family photographs. Coupled with the stories, photos bring the words to life, giving the names faces and a sense to places. That’s photostorytelling.


I will spark your enthusiasm for telling your family stories, give very doable photostorytelling ideas based on your time and budget and show you not only how to get your photostory started, but most importantly, finished.

 

Tips for Preserving & Sharing Your Priceless Family Photo Memories

Everyone has photos. You know they are important. You want to do something to preserve and share them. But dealing with them feels overwhelming. This PixTalk will help.


I tackle the question, "Why should I bother?”, discuss what “preserving” really means for prints, slides, negatives, film/video, digital images and give very doable ideas for sharing your photos in fun and meaningful ways.


"Jiffy was wonderful - great presenter, great passion - she ‘had a story’ to share with us that contained good information. She is a ‘pro’. I was very happy I attended even after a long day."


- S. Venker


I'd love to give a PixTalk to your group - large or small – in 2017. Let’s talk… :)

 

2017 BookCamp!:

BookCamp is Four Sessions in Two Weeks (& the Preview Proofing Party) - You end with a finished book!

 

Tell your story in a 20-page photobook, combining your stories and photos to make a fun and meaningful gift. All it takes is two weeks, four workshop meetings and a preview book proofing party – really!

 

“I loved this workshop. I signed up because I had been thinking about putting a cookbook together for a few years and could never get myself started on the project. Boy was I shocked at the progression of learning that occurred over the first 3 sessions! I had my book together by the 4th session. In two weeks, four sessions - I did it!” 

- Sheryl Meddin
