One of my colleagues presented “Supporting Clients Through Traumatic Photo Memories”. She shared her personal traumatic photo memories and ways to help clients through such situations. Each photo has a story behind it and sometimes the same photo will evoke different emotions for different people. It is important to know and expect that. I always tell my clients, working on a family’s photo collection can be bittersweet. You’ll see happy times to remember and see people who aren’t alive anymore which would be sad. I’m there to help my clients manage with the bittersweetness of going through a collection.
