Photos Made New grew out of my love for two hobbies. I have always loved to paint. I started painting with oils in high school. Now I paint with pixels! My second love is genealogy.
About twenty years ago I started researching my family history. I got out the two boxes of family photos that I had inherited from my parents. There they were! Hundreds of faded, stained, creased and even torn photos. All those old photos in need of photo restoration. And so it began. I started restoring - and I restored and restored! After I restored my vintage photos and faded snapshots, I turned to friends and relatives. Finally, I told a friend, "I have restored EVERYTHING!"
In 2009, I decided to turn my hobby into a part-time business with plans to do even more photo restoration when I retired. Now, I am retired! So, I can devote all my time to restoring old photos, and I could not be happier.
These old worn photos are so special to me. They are a connection to our ancestors, and the newer photos are our memories! I love making these photos as beautiful as they once were.
I hope you will allow me to restore your vintage photos or make your "younger" photos look new again. Generations to come will be glad you did! Today's photo papers and inks are acid free, so your restored photos will not crumble and fade like your vintage photos have.
Send me your photos and I will send you a beautiful restoration!
