What better gift to give, than a memory no longer lost in time.

      Restoring old photos for people gives me a challenge & a since of accomplishment. Seeing the smiles of the clients face & sometimes tears, when they see something that was old & cracked; to looking like new again, is very rewarding. 
What led me to become interested in Photo Restoration?
      I grew up on a farm in SE Kansas, and later graduated from KSTC, now known as ESU.  I have stayed in the Emporia, KS area.  After my retirement in 2009,
I was looking for a hobby to do in the winter time, I started scrap booking.  I wanted our family photos to look better.  I began learning from YouTube for restoring old photographs.  Then later, I enrolled in online classes and have continued to do so. 

   My work-  
  -- I repair photographs with all sorts of damage.   
  -- I can usually improve newspaper clippings and documents. 
  -- Take photos of slides and negatives; and change them into prints.  Slides can also deteriorate over time.  
  -- I use a scanner for photos that are 8.5  X 11 or smaller. For larger photos and for bubble glass, I use my camera.
  -- All repair work is accomplished through computer software.
  -- Mostly I help individuals who have only a few photos to repair. And several times, I have scanned photo albums, put them on flash drives for family members to share. 
  -- I have helped a person make a family history book. By using photos and stories from her and other family members, we put 500+ photos into her book.  The beginning idea of 15 pages, turned into 170 pages! 
  -- In the summer of 2020, I started volunteering at the Lyon County History Center, where they have many pictures & negatives.  The History Center gives me new challenges to learn from. 
  --I am member of the Emporia Camera Club.
Other photo projects-
  -- Slide shows for class reunions, and birthdays parties, etc.
  -- Collages for Anniversary, Christmas gifts, and sometimes funerals.
