Old family photographs are a valuable reminder of the past; they tell a story of our ancestors, our history. Whether it’s a family portrait or a photograph of the old family farm, historic photographs are something to be cherished.

Time, atmospheric conditions and general wear and tear are not very kind to our old family photos but photo restoration services can salvage the visual memories so they can be passed on to future generations.

People may inherit photos from loved ones after they have passed and want to repair photos that mean something to them. Some people want to frame their ancestry photos.

At Linda Richards Photography, we don’t just take new photos. We also offer photo restoration services that create a new image from your old photos. One of the first questions that people ask is, how much does something like that cost? They assume that rejuvenating their historic photos is a very expensive procedure. We quote prices based on the complexity of each individual project.

The next concern many have when it comes to restoring their photos is that they don’t want the originals to be damaged. Rest assured that the older photos are scanned in so they can be altered digitally. The original photograph is never altered. We will give the new digital version to the client along with the original print copy.

Restoring historical photos gives the opportunity to have a view into the past.

The primary goal of photo restoration is to preserve the image while repairing damage caused over time. We repair the image by removing scratches, tears and other visible bends. Sometimes we add contrast to a photo that has faded over time.
