Few people think about the importance of preserving and restoring their personal photographs from 15, 20 years or more ago. The next generation is going to be curious about the decades before them. By restoring old photos, you get to leave a legacy for your future generations to enjoy!
Many, of us, have boxes of photographs just like these tucked away in the basement or attic that are getting ruined. These are not great locations because they are prone to harmful temperature & humidity fluctuations. Ever hear someone say they lost all their memories in a flooded basement or due to a leaky roof? Make sure when you are preserving family photographs it’s best to store them in a cool & dark area or closet in your home and not in the basements or attic.
Also, if you have pictures that are worn or have imperfections that you wish to fix, make sure to take them to a photographer who can help you fix the photos. And to play it safe make sure to also scan your old pictures. It’s a great backup in case they get completely damaged or if you wish to share with younger family members that tend to love everything digital and scanning them is a great option. Attached are a few pictures that were restored by J. Adames Designs & Photography.
