    From the first step in this photobook process, Rita put me at ease. She walked me through this creative journey and made it fun, not the daunting task I had imagined. We met to go over photobook details, dates, events and she asked lots of great questions to understand what I wanted the book to communicate. I felt totally comfortable with sharing information and stories with her. Rita has a special and gentle way of listening for important details. She works to preserve memories while creating beautiful books. Her creative skills and artistic style are outstanding. Rita has an intuitive artistic sense. And her technical/ computer knowledge balanced with her savvy creative side is a great combination. She fixed a number of jpeg photos that were not print worthy through her use of digital tools. She made changes to my edits quickly and with 100% accuracy. Rita has excellent follow through and gave me a project time line at our first meeting. She is the definition of being a creative designer with efficient organization and time management skills. Rita showed me that this kind of photobook is a lasting piece of history for our family. I love the book she created and will never go back to sticking individual photos into albums. A digitally prepared photobook is the way to go. Rita will be my personal photobook organizer for decades to come.

    I have been holding on to valuable family video tapes on VHS of my children. I wanted them to be digital so I asked Rita to put them on a DVD. We watched them last night. It was a wonderful evening of laughing and memories. I would recommend Rita at Photovation because she is professional and conscientious. Most important, I trusted her with my videos because I know Rita will treat them with the same care that I would.

    Rita is a life saver. My grandfather passed away and my parents asked me to pull together a PowerPoint with his pictures. I called Rita and asked her advice on how best to scan his pictures. She suggested a portable, easy-to-use scanner and, even had one on hand. Seriously a lifesaver! Thanks Rita.

    I thought I was saving my childhood photos from ruin when I took them out of the sticky photo album years ago, but recently discovered more color loss and aging. It feels so good to have them saved forever in digital format! Rita did a great job scanning and saving my photos. She is fast, and it was such a treat to view them on the computer.

    Rita Norton of Photovation did a fantastic job of converting several hundred of my photos from the 70's, 80's and 90's onto a DVD and even onto a Google + website so that I could access and share the photos with friends and family, right away! It was so convenient to have her do this and it saved me a lot of time.
