Snap Happy!

Last week my beloved Macbook crashed and I ran the risk of losing all of my precious photos (like the one below) of my daughter Ava. Luckily, after shelling out a couple hundred dollars, I was able to get it fixed and retrieve all of my photos. In the past, I have not always been so lucky. That's why it's so important to print your digital photos.


Ava in her Easter bib. I'm printing out all of my pics just in case my computer decides to tank again.

For all of my fellow photo lovers, Snapfish is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this week and offering several outstanding discounts and promotions on prints, photo books, etc. Visit their site for more information on how you can sell and share your own creative card designs, photo book layouts and more (starting this summer)!



Also, Snapfish is offering a $50 gift card to one of my lucky readers. Simply leave a comment and a winner will be selected randomly and announced later this week!

Awww, what a doll!!!

I'm glad you were able to save your pics. It's hard to recover from losing precious moments like that.

She is simply adorable.

Computer crashes are so scary. Glad you were able to recover your info and photos.

I keep my important stuff on a jump drive. I also use www.dropbox.com.

she is beautiful!! snap & print away :-)
i am always so afraid i'm going to loose my photos, and i take a lot of pictures! i use snapfish (and flickr) to upload my photos online just in case & i have an external hard drive too - a good idea!! it takes a few seconds to just copy the folder on the hard drive so as long as i don't loose that, i'm set :-)

ok i think Ava needs to stop slacking off and get her acting/modeling career going. soon she will be too old.

Krystal Strong said...

Pretty baby!

I will say that this will never be a problem as long as you back up regularly. Get an external HD. Use mozy or dropbox.com.

Wow, she is adorable. Reminds me of my niece and how I need to print some of my pics of her before my buggy PC does the same thing.

Ava is absolutely gorgeous!! You just reminded me that I have to get my pictures of my godkids processsed. Not too long ago, my laptop crashed as well. I was able to go to Best Buy and get all my pictures, music and other files transferred to an external drive. I still can't believe how lucky I was!!

Funny you should post about this because I have been meaning to print some pictures- it's been a looong time since I have done so and they are piling up. Thanks for the very motivating reminder :-)

Allywan said...

Omg adorable baby girl!!
I have pictures from college I haven't printed out yet. I should probably get around to doing that. I'd be devastated if I lost them.

Kwana said...

How cute is she? Too cute!!

Gorgeous! My daughter had the same bib this Easter and I'm SO guilty of not printing the pics of my twins. That's my next rainy day project!

Aromatize said...

She is so CUTE!

Rebee said...

Ava is beautiful! So glad you were able to retrieve your pictures. I have yet to print my wedding pictures and we know how long ago that was.

Jubilance said...

Awww, your daughter is a doll! How cute is she?

I've been meaning to print my pictures forever, but I never seem to get around to it. I lost a ton of pictures when my old laptop died & I still havent gotten in the habit of printing my photos. Maybe I'll start now.

Ondo Lady said...

OMG she is beautiful!! I guess she takes after her mother.

dejoi said...

So glad you saved your pics! She is so beautiful! I'm sure you have tons of great one of a kind shots!

T said...

OH GOOD GOD IS SHE PRECIOUS! Like I absolutely cannot take it. Congrats over and over to you and your husband. I hope you're enjoying every moment (and sneaking in rest because I heard new mommies don't usually get much).

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Thanks so much ladies for your kind compliments - I don't want to blow up Ava's head so I won't tell her how cute my fellow bloggers/readers think she is. ahahahha

@T - What you've heard is true - I'm a walking zombie. Sleep deprivation to the fullest!

Redbonegirl97 said...

Yeah I love Snapfish but you should really invest in a hard drive. Glad you were able to save the pictures of your adorable daughter.
