Restoring Order ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


We've finally made it to 36 weeks pregnant! Now I can breathe a huge sigh of relief as labor will no longer require me to transfer to Tucson (where the level 3 NIC Unit is located) AND my husband is home from his business trip. So with all of these stressful factors now behind us I am busy trying to wrap up loose ends. The restoration of these 7 portraits was my last official job before beginning my much anticipated maternity leave. They come to me from one of the Fort's headquarters buildings as they prepare for Hall Of Fame week coming up this spring. There was extensive damage, goodness knows how long these images have hung in their hallways. Scratches, dust, fading, you name it, it was present. Here are the before and afters, which of course are too small to reveal the hundreds of imperfections, and appear quite a bit more contrasting than they do in print. However, the obvious improvement is evident:

Having never tried to restore an image, I cannot completely appreciate the amount of time and effort that must have gone into each portrait. But wow, what a finished product you have here. The colors are so rich and true. How fun to have a hand in the preservation of the military history there1
