photo organization method/software/archiving/sorting?

I am starting to take more and more photos because I now have a daughter. I have thousands and just keep dumping them into a folder. There must be a better way of organizing these. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also I am saving them on multiple external hard drives, is there a better safer way of archiving these?

I just use Google Photos but if you have higher res I think you have to drop "quality". Good thing about Google photos is you can access it on any device at any time if you have Data/Wifi and it auto saves via cloud from phone. Google makes it easier to search as well as you can search by location by info (if typed in), it also tries to auto recognize ppl.

If you're using a external HD (more than one for redundancy), makes sure you keep one offsite just in case of theft/disaster.
