Hey, I’m Cindy Ann Lowe Davis, creator of Sweet Memories, a photo-restoration service, also specializing in Memory Keeper photo books.

My logo means “hold on to those in your heart.”smalr-logo

Honor the remembrance of those loved people, pets and places you embrace. I can help you do that by repairing those treasured images you have sentimentally kept.

The passage of time is not a friend to your pictures. Any number of things can happen over the years: They can fade, change color, get folded, wrinkled or torn, get bug-eaten or spilled on. I haven’t seen an old photograph yet that doesn’t need at least some correction.

negative-film-strip-diag_21028691Working with a film negative can often yield better results than from the print. Negatives can get damaged, too, but, usually, they live a more sheltered life by not being handled as much.

A negative may have more latitude…it’s like making a new print in the darkroom, only better, now that we have digital technology.

However, I advise you to continue to keep your old pictures. You need those as a tangible back-up system.

So, if you have your original negs, it’s good to work with those instead of the prints. But, if prints are what you have, then that’s fine, too. I’ve been able to make some considerable improvement from some pretty bad prints!

Mama, Daddy, my big sister, and me in Plant City, FL, where I spent my childhood.

Your pictures are the main documentation you have of past generations and it’s understandable that it would be difficult for you to part with them even temporarily. I know how precious they are to you because I know how I value my own pictures. I’m extra careful handling them.

Besides, for those who live locally, I’m right here in Apopka! They don’t even have to leave town!

One of my clients said he was so happy to find a local photo restorer. He didn’t want to send his treasured images to some big, impersonal lab in New York.

Please refer to my suggested

OPTIONS

on how to get your pictures to me.

I’m very proud of what I can do to refresh your photos, breathing new life into those Sweet Memories of yours. I can improve images from prints, 35 mm negatives and color transparencies, and 120 film.

They’re always so amazed at the “before-and-afters.”

 That makes me feel good.
