Karen Tipton

Professional Photo Manager

Karen became a photo manager, when she inherited 20+ banker boxes of photos, slides, albums, and memorabilia from her late parents. As a member of the Photo Managers, she learned the proper way to handle many types of images and media. While organizing her family's photo collection, she realized she could help others facing the same dilemma. So she started Got Photos? to do just that.

Karen was born and raised in Texas, attended Texas Tech University, where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance. She worked in the banking industry for twenty years, and then started and ran two small businesses, a sign shop and a preschool photography partnership. Through the sign shop and photography venture, Karen was introduced to and developed the skills that allowed her to offer the two services she loves the most - photo books and slideshows. It's all great and good to have an organized photo collection, but why? Because now you can bring your precious moments to life and share them with your family, friends, and descendants.

Karen lives with her wonderful husband, John, in Sugar Land, Texas; and they have two awesome grown children. Karen's other interests include Mah Jongg, bridge, and choir.
