Family Reunion Photos – Sorting the Clues

In August, I dedicated all my podcast episodes to family reunion focused activities and guests. Since it’s Family Reunion season, that means we’re pretty likely to be posing for a group portrait.  It’s part of most reunions…a visual gathering of everyone at the event.

If you have a group portrait of a family gathering, I bet you have a mystery. 

Very few group portraits contain the names of the people in the image. There is a simple reason. If you know the names of everyone in the picture, you’re less likely to write identifications on them.  The problem with that reasoning is that as time passes, so do the people who knew who was in the photo. Now the next generation has a photo mystery to solve. But how? 

That’s where I come in. As the Photo Detective, I’ve developed methods to solving photo mysteries of all sizes from a picture of a single person to one that contains dozens.  I love working with you to solve your photo puzzles. Did you know that every photo collection is unique? They are. I should know I look at thousands of images every year. 

Do you have a photo mystery to solve? I’m sharing 5 tips so you can get started in this week’s show notes. 

Listen to this week’s episode to hear even more about family reunions, reunion photo mysteries, and what is coming up in September.
