We snap pictures at the drop of a hat these days. Interesting dinner? Take a picture. Dog in a funny pose? Take a picture. Family snuggled together watching a movie? Take several pictures from every angle imaginable.


But while we’re busy taking these pictures, we rarely stop to think about the importance of each one—or how significant and powerful these photos might one day become.


ScanMyPhotos customer Jackie, however, knows all too well the incredible value photos can have.

It’s a common pipedream for many aspiring writers: to give up all material possessions and hit the road in search of adventure and quiet, inspirational places to write. For ScanMyPhoto’s customer Debbie LaFleiche this dream is about to become a reality.
