I have always loved taking photos since receiving my first camera as a small child. It has always been much more of a passion than a career. My specialty is the restoration of old photographs, tin-types, daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and glass negatives.
For me, it is the ultimate satisfaction when I am able to make history come "alive" by taking old, faded, stained, and torn family photos and make them look new again. Seeing and hearing the appreciation from family members, many of whom break into tears when they first see their "restored" images, is completely fulfilling!
