About this pro
My combination study of fine art, graphic design, and Photoshop has given me a unique ability to understand and visualize excellence in my work with each photo. I am Adobe Certified in Photoshop CS4. So that your precious and irreplaceable photographs never leave your possession, I can travel to your home and take digital pictures to work from and give you a cost on the project. I then provide you with a digital copy to put on your computer for reference and to make prints from at your convenience. Or, you can scan and email me your photo, and I will tell you what I can do for what cost. With clients I have met, I like seeing the smiles on their faces as they see their precious photos brought back to new life.

Melissa restored several old photos for us that needed color enhancement, cracks removed and/or color added to black and white portraits. She did an excellent job and we plan to utilize her services again.Mar 22, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There is no standard pricing. A exact quote is impossible from a description only. An estimate may be given from a description with a firm quote given after seeing the photograph and the complexity of the request. Only upon approval of a firm quote does work begin.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually get a scanned copy of the photo emailed to me (or some have brought it to my home to scan). After looking it over, I confirm the price, which is impossible to give from a description only. Upon approval, I prepare a working draft copy to let the customer review it and give suggestions, if wanted. After the customer is satisfied with the restoration or editing, I finalize it and email it back for printing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied Media Design Technology at Davis Applied Technology College and am also certified in Adobe PhotoShop CS4.
