Meet Caren Osborne

I believe in the importance of preserving and sharing your photos and their stories so that they can be enjoyed now and so that your photo legacy is preserved forever.


As a certified photo organizer with The Photo Managers, I have a passion for helping people preserve, protect and share their photos and the stories that go with those photos. I started creating scrapbooks and photo albums when I was around 10 years old and have been dubbed the family photo historian by my mother and sister. Since 2001, I have been helping people to preserve their photo legacy and tell their stories. One of my greatest joys is making my clients happy and sharing their delight knowing that their photos are available to enjoy with family and friends and that will be

preserved for future generations to enjoy as well.


As a Certified Productive Environment Specialist, through the Productive Environment Institute, I enjoy working with solopreneurs and small business owners to help them clear the clutter in their offices and create a more productive environment. I have a lifelong love of organizing, which I inherited from both of my parents, and I am excited to use my skills to help others.



Whether I am organizing your photos or your files, I am committed to serving you with compassion and understanding and providing excellent customer service.


I am a mother, a grandmother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I live near Chapel Hill, NC and have lived and traveled all over the United States and several foreign countries. I love spending time with my grandchildren, creating photo books for myself and my family, gardening, needlecrafts, and spending time outdoors.


I am an active member of my local chapters of Soroptimists International and NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals). I have also been the conference coordinator for all nine of The Photo Managers annual conferences.
