Who we are –
We are a mother-daughter team, and we feel privileged to be able to work together doing what we love . . . “Capturing and celebrating the images of your life.”
Certified Photo Organizer / Photographer
My paternal grandmother always carried her camera with her (she called it her “Kodak”) and, as a young girl, I picked up on her passion for recording life’s moments. In 1996, I started teaching people how to organize their photos in albums and how to write meaningful captions to accompany the photos. After I retired from my career as an executive with a Minnesota based company, I became even more involved with teaching photo organization, and expanded my services to include digital images and custom photo products, and professional photography. I look forward to showing you the value of organizing your photo library and creating opportunities to share your precious photo memories with those you love.
Professional Photo Organizer / Photographer
I’ve been telling my own story through photos since 1999. And now I’m enjoying helping other people organize their photos so they can tell their stories. It’s interesting how many people can’t find the specific photo they want on their computers, cell phones and tablets. My specialty is bringing organization to that confusion. If you feel overwhelmed with digital photo clutter, I would love to help you.
I have a degree in Veterinary Technology from Minnesota’s Globe College, so you might imagine that I love most any furry critter. I’m “mom” to my two cats, Dinah and Loki. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, travel, studying history, reading, and doing genealogy research.
We are members of PPA – Professional Photographers of America, FEMCITY Fort Myers Chapter, the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce, and APPO – The Association of Personal Photo Organizers (also known as The Photo Organizers).

We are passionate about helping you organize and preserve your photos. We’ll show you how, or we’ll do it for you. We also teach you how to use photos to celebrate your life by sharing or displaying your photos and related stories. Your life is a story just waiting to be told!
I hired Signe Pagel and In-Focus Photo Solutions to help with re-branding me. Since my health journey had resulted in so many changes in my appearance, I realized that having old photos on my website would not serve me. When the pictures were shared with me, I must admit both my husband and me were shocked. Not only did she capture the spirit of my health and wellness journey, she made me glow. Every picture was framed exquisitely. Her lighting and composition were perfect. She got down on her knees and tried so many different approaches to make sure we had a set of fabulous pictures. Both she and her daughter were easy to work with and so complimentary, making me smile and laugh. Both of which she captured in our photos. She also came up with the idea of filming me with my precious dogs to allow people to really get to know me. In-Focus Photo Solutions is one of the best investments I have ever made in my business marketing. Thank you In-Focus, Signe, and Danielle. Namaste, Andrea HeavenLaneCreations.comAndrea Trank
