Has your computer or your phone ever crashed? Hopefully, you had your photos backed up.
If you aren’t saving your precious heirlooms to a cloud service like Dropbox, Google Photos, Amazon Cloud Drive or even an external hard drive, then chances are you will lose all of your memories. Trust me; I know from experience. There was a time when I didn’t back up. I learned my lesson. You will need to make an investment but if you cherish your photos, it will be worth it.
I advise all of my clients to download their photos to a hard drive then BACK THEM UP. I still have countless numbers of customers call me with their crash story asking if I have a backup of their photos. Most of the time I do, but I have to spend time going through my archives to locate them. Therefore, I have to charge. Check out these storage tips from B&H Photo & Video. Do yourself a favor and make it a priority to back up.
