Mission Statement : To provide authentic, compassionate solutions to transform the chaos of photos and memorabilia into an organized, preserved collection that can be easily shared and enjoyed for generations.
Most of us have at least a few shoeboxes, legal boxes, or maybe even an attic of treasured, but haphazardly placed, family photos, memorabilia, home videos stored on outdated media, hard drives, and unsorted duplicate prints.
Accumulating alongside the boxes is also an overwhelming feeling or nagging guilt that we haven’t yet tackled this project because we are already unbelievably busy.
So these memories stay hidden for years or even decades. At 2000 Paces we help reconnect you with your photo and video memories, by preserving and protecting them and organizing them in a manner that allows you to actually view, enjoy and share them with friends and family.
Rachel Arbuckle and her team of photo organizers work with clients to preserve photo and video memories. They do this by providing extensive services to organize, digitize and backup the boxes of photos, hard drives, videotapes, slides, albums and more that are often scattered in various places around our homes.
When fire season hits, 2000 Paces Photo Organizing clients feel relieved knowing their irreplaceable memories are organized and easily accessed in one place and safely backed up online. It may be a fire, a life milestone, a loss, or a move that triggers it, but organizing your photos into one location that is readily available to view and share is the key to feeling comfortable and confident that your memories are safe.
In 2014, a series of fierce fires roared through San Diego County, the largest of which started on the mountain just behind my home. I had only minutes to grab a few items. My instinct was to gather all of our photos, but I panicked when I realized my precious memories were all over our home in boxes, picture frames, and albums. I grabbed what I could and our family headed to safety.
After many days of worry, we were able to return home to the memories we had to leave behind. Thankfully, our home was spared, but others in our community were not as fortunate.
This experience not only solidified my commitment to protect my family’s collection of photos but prompted me to found 2000 Paces Photo Organizing, encouraging you to organize and protect your important memories.

I am excited to be able to help our clients preserve their stories for future generations to enjoy.
