She deeply respects and is proficient in all aspects of this work. From the initial communication with you about your needs, to the digitizing, restoring, printing, and archiving processes.
Jenn personally and solely handles each project you submit- assessing and customizing service for your needs. Your items are well cared for in her hands, whether it is an original work or a digital file, and she is especially passionate about communicating directly with you regarding your order from start to finish.
She truly enjoys her work and providing this service.
It is a gift to be able to restore damaged, precious images. It is a gift to bring color and new sense of joy into a black and white photo. It is a gift to create digital files of photographs or film for families or organizations to share online from a distance. It is a gift to print and share new photographs. And the greatest gift is to witness the excitement and emotion that can emerge from customers when their precious items take on new life.
UPLOADING YOUR ORDER
Uploading digital files is welcome, and for some the preferred or only way to submit your restoration, colorizing, or printing order.
