rye, new york photographer specializing in newborn + family photography
Was anyone else worried when Facebook and Instagram disappeared recently? Did it make you think about how much you rely on these platforms to keep your memories ‘safe’, remember birthdays and special occasions? All those photo and video uploads, birthday and event reminders…..have you ever thought you might need to keep them backed up somewhere? It definitely took me by surprise and yes, I’m a photographer who keeps client session backups on site as well as off site, but never really thought about the personal stuff I was posting on the gram and Facebook!
Did you know that you can easily download ALL of your photos from Instagram and create photo books (suggest monthly) through Chatbooks? As for Facebook, did you know you can easily download your photo and videos and keep them backed up online?
It’s so easy and here’s how it works:
Go into your Facebook profile, click on the down arrow on the right and select ‘Settings & Privacy’
Click on ‘Settings’
Click on ‘Your Facebook Information’
Select ‘Transfer a Copy of Your Information’
Choose Destination for Transfer (copy) of data:
I save mine to my Dropbox account but there are various options.
Facebook will ask you to connect to the account you’re transferring the data to and it should be straightforward from here.
Depending on how many photos and/or videos you have it might take a while but I’m so glad mine are now backed up in another location!
Don’t lose those precious photos and memories 🙂
"I cannot say enough good things about Jo. She not only took beautiful pictures of our family but also helped me the day of the shoot to style our outfits. We have two very active kids under 4 years and she still managed to capture some beautiful pictures!!! Jo will definitely be taking our pictures over and over again!"
"Jo is fantastic! She did professional headshots for me, and I'm super happy with the results. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking for a professional photo. She was responsive and flexible, working with my schedule and adapting location as needed. She coached me on how to get the best, most flattering shot, and the photos were great!!"
"Jo is amazing!! She really is able to capture the emotion and love between the people she is photographing. We had a wonderful experience working with her from start to finish and couldn't be happier with the results. We will absolutely use her again!"
"Jo is amazing! She has been photographing my family for years. She captures the personality of my children perfectly & is a joy to work with. I can't recommend her enough!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Jo. This past session was our 5th time working together and as always it was such a pleasure! She is very responsive both before and after the session. During the session she is engaging and always gets my sometimes reluctant little one to feel at ease and have fun. The quality of the pictures are beautiful and I look forward to working with her again and again to capture my family."
"I couldn't recommend Jo Bryan Photography more highly! I was dreading having a professional work photo taken, but Jo actually made it enjoyable. Not only is she an extremely skilled photographer, but she also has a gift for making people feel relaxed and natural. Jo is also extremely professional--the housekeeping part of my experience was simple, efficient and best of all--I had my photos in less than a week which I felt was above and beyond. The only problem I had was that I had a hard time choosing!"
"After pouring over all the images, I can honestly say they are the best family photos I've ever been part of. Jo is as patient and kind as she is talented. Despite four rowdy kids ages 4-9, she was able to capture some of the most precious moments through her lens. Working with Jo was great and she made what usually is my kids least favorite family activity (family pictures) so easy! She's flexible, friendly, calm and makes everyone feel at ease. I will treasure all the photos she took of us this year and am looking forward to continuing to work with her well into the future."
"I worked with Jo for my recent branding session and had a fantastic experience! From the planning stages to delivering my gallery, Jo was so responsive and professional. During the shoot she made me feel comfortable and confident and helped me pose to look both authentic and flattering! She really nailed my vision. The turnaround time was also excellent! I am so pleased with my images. They reflect my personality and brand perfectly. Can't recommend her enough!"
