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 ten 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. As I recently told a friend, "I restore EVERYTHING!"
Finally after a few years of this, I decided photo restoration and photo repair was what I wanted to do when I retired. So, that is exactly what I am doing 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! It is important to make these photos as beautiful as they once were.
