About Caren Osborne

I believe in the importance of preserving and sharing your photos and their stories so that they can be enjoyed now and so that your legacy is preserved forever.

As a certified photo manager, I have a passion for helping people preserve, protect and share their photos and the stories that go with those photos.  I started creating scrapbooks and photo albums when I was around 10 years old and have been dubbed the family photo historian by my mother and  sister.   Today I work primarily with baby boomers and seniors to assist them with organizing their printed and digital photos, digitizing paper photos, and creating custom family history and special occasion photo books.  I am committed to serving my clients with compassion and understanding and providing excellent customer service.  My greatest joy is making my clients happy and sharing their delight knowing that their photos are available to enjoy with family and friends and will be preserved for future generations to enjoy as well.

I am a mother, a grandmother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I live near Chapel Hill, NC and have lived and traveled all over the United States and several foreign countries. I love spending time with my grandchildren, creating photo books for myself and my family, gardening, needlecrafts, and enjoying the outdoors.
