Lesson 7: Backing up your photos

You know that feeling, when you’ve been working all night to finish a paper, and suddenly your computer crashes and you realized you never saved your work?

Yes, that’s how it feels when you’ve been documenting the lives of your children from before they were born—and suddenly your phone breaks, is stolen or is thrown down the toilet by your precious angel.

I don’t want this to happen to you.

So in this lesson I’m going to show you simple ways to back up those beautiful photos you never want to lose.

Action Step:

Find the time, and backup your photos. Automate what you can. It really doesn’t take that long and you’ll be thankful you did.
