About

Design & Preservation

Years ago I saw the way that people would see their memories, crystalized in ink and paper, to a large company only to have disappointment returned. Many of you have experienced it as well. You send your old worn photograph to a large company with some automated delivery system only to have it return looking little better then when you sent it. Only now with less money in your bank account.

These photographs are important to people and when I saw the way that these processing centers were being caviler with their work I knew that I could do better. So I started From Pictures to Portraits to give people the option of a personal touch and, while we may have expanded our scope, that mission remains the same.
