Sometimes you look at an old photograph and memories rush into your head all at once. Humans love images. They like to remind themselves of the great feats that they have achieved, or remember their ancestors through a small frame captured in time. The history of images used in human history date back to almost 20,000 years ago. The cave paintings in Lascaux, France, are some of the oldest images formed by humans to remind them of the beautiful wildlife that they lived amongst.
Sometimes these great memories can be washed away by the past. That old picture editing captured the beautiful moments often see cracks, tears, stains and discoloration with which the glory of the photograph slowly diminishes as the clock ticks.

Beyond restoring pictures of your loved ones and ancestors, we also specialize in genealogy services to help you remember your ancestors and blood line. Trace your origins back to centuries and remember who your great ancestors were and from whence they came.
There are a lot of family tree websites which help you enter your family details to create a record, but they are not of much help when you actually have to discover who your ancestors were, usually before the third great grandparents. These sites are simply marvelous for minor record keeping but astonishingly useless when it comes to obtaining the truth... They also do a fantastic job telling you that your records don't exist. That's not quality genealogy service. There is a much more accurate alternative than just asking around and relying on others to collect data. We sample people’s DNA and trace their bloodline to other matches. We have experts in this field who have been working in genealogy and have helped people understand a great deal about their past and their origins.
It is true that in the past, people who were wealthy had the means to record their heritage. Today, it does not require exceptional wealth to discover your heritage. Give us a call and you’ll be surprised at how accurately a professional genealogist can help you reconnect with your past. Every potential customer will receive a complimentary TWO hour consultation. Once needs are assessed, a quote is prepared for the required genealogy work.
The past is the past, but sometimes, you need to remember the past to learn a great deal from it. Old pictures and family heritage remind us of the great things we can accomplish - things like our ancestors did.

There have been a lot of cases where we have restored photograph for people and the refinish has revealed some details that were not visible before. It can be something small like the name of an old building in the background, or a relative whose records were never found. Thanks to the new technology that is available to recolor and sharpen images, our experts can reveal minute details and uncover a lot of things that can be missed in the original photograph.
Many people view negatives as just “extra junk” lying about the house, but they’re much more. Negatives are the original copy of your photograph and can be used multiple times to create the image again. Negatives have been unjustly ignored since the digital formats took over the photography scene. There are still some photographers who prefer to use film over the digital format as it gives a much more original feel and a “grain” effect that is hard to achieve with digital cameras and phones.
If you have some negatives that have been lying around for quite some time, don’t throw them away. Bring them down to our Houston studio and create lifelike memories. Every frame of the past can help you remember the good times. It is highly probable that the negatives that you have discovered will be scratched or damaged somehow, but not to worry, that is where our refreshing department comes into play.
