Photographs are important to me. I’ve always loved flicking through old family photo albums and reminiscing about the good ol’ days. I also love looking at the albums from before I was born, spotting family members in their younger years and discovering fun facts like finding out my dad used to have a perm (and he rocked it!)!! Over the last eight years, my mum has been backing up old family photos on to hard drives for us all to have and enjoy. I often find myself opening up the photos and having a look through. Some of the files are scans of crumpled-up, very much loved photos of grandparents with their friends and relatives, which my mum has asked me to restore. I happily agreed to retouch them as I know how much these photos mean to me and my family.
I have spent many years experimenting and working with Photoshop so I could use some of the techniques I’ve learnt to remove scratches, dust and colour correct the photographs. I loved editing the photos as it made me feel all warm inside by seeing how sweet my grandparents were (and still are!) and being able to restore the photos to how they should look felt really rewarding. Photos are important. I believe they should be cherished and looked after. By restoring old photos, I can make the photos pop again and give them a new life. I found out my Grandad has been carrying around one of the photos I recently restored and showing it off to people, which is really sweet to hear. It’s amazing how much a photo of something or someone can mean to one person.
I’ve loved working on these restoration projects and deeply understand the importance of how special the memories are behind a photograph. That is why I’m offering my restoration services to you :)
If you have any old images of loved ones which you think could be given a little TLC, get in touch! I would love to help restore your photographs and give you images that make you beam from ear to ear.
