I don’t know about you, but I have never found a good way to organize photos. And I’m so overwhelmed thinking of where to begin. But the thought of losing important images is so scary. Photos quickly bring back memories that are foggy at best thanks to the passing of time. I often simply upload to social media so I don’t lose the photos and can get to them again, but they lose their quality and can’t be printed. I have good news. I have found a solution.

Seahorse is a new app for documenting life together in shared experiences with friends and family. All photos and videos shared in Seahorse are co-owned or belong to everyone invited to that scene. And Seahorse saves your photos and videos in their original resolution. I love that you can have this app on all of your devices and bring all of your photos together.

For example, we captured our trip to Sri Lanka on our iPad, two iPhones and my camera. I’m working on adding them all here. I want to do the same for each of our boys with photos from their entire childhood in one place. My husband and I often find amazing surprises on each other’s phones—images I have never seen or didn’t remember on his phone and the same on mine. This is our solution! We can share scenes on this app and add them in during or after a trip or an event. It’s perfect! We don’t need to clog up each other’s phone storage space by sending them to each other and having duplicates.

My favorite thing is that you can back up your Instagram and Facebook accounts so you have them accessible in a different way and don’t run the risk of losing them if something happens to an account. I also love that Seahorse is private. While I clearly put myself and our family out there, I am careful with the images I share. I love that this is an option for protecting our most valued and intimate images… the first images of our children after they were born for example.

For fun you can use magic to shake your phone for random images from across scenes to discover a forgotten moment, milestone or celebration. Endless joy…
