Last Christmas Gift

That’s a wrap as they say.  The last Christmas photo book is done and it looks great!

Actually I would like to tell you a little about it.  It started with a call from a lady wanting to get a photo book for her brother.  She had about 400 photos from the 1950’s to 2019, and as many of our treasured family photos they were printed instead of digital.  That’s where I came in; not to worry I have a scanner and could scan them.  What a relief for her, all she had to do is send me her stash.  Once I had them on my computer the process moved to enhancing the photos.  When we discussed the enhancing I told her it’s not possible to made bad photos great but enhancing them can certainly make them look a whole lot better (and it did).

Some of the later photos were very good but with a little tweaking not twittering they went from good to pretty great.   Tweaking 400 photos took several hours which does cost more, however it was certainly worth it. Once all that was done then the book was ready to make and here’s how it started; with grandparents, then parents wedding pictures, next came the photos of his younger years, his wedding and all his kids using the best 325 photos.  This book was 52 pages so to be honest it was not the basic price but WOW what a great gift she is giving her brother.  You can’t put a price on family.  I hope he loves it as much as she did.  And that’s the story of the last Christmas photo book of 2019!  Call, text, email me or go to my website to order your own photo book.

Lost Photos in Harvey..Here is a way to help.

I woke up this morning thinking; what can I do to help my fellow Texans that are suffering so much in South Texas.  You can do money, supplies or volunteer.  Then God (at least I believe it was God) put it in my head!  If you and your family were having to leave your home not knowing what you would come back to; what is the one thing you would be most stress about leaving behind.  Me personally would be my family photos.

Here is what I would like to do.  If you have a family member in the flooded area that has lost their family photos maybe I can help you.  For the first 10 people who contact me and discusses their need I will give them 50% off the price of my regular digital photobook (see my website ) this will include my scanning 50 printed photos free.  These 10 people will be put in a drawing for a free book.  I will draw two people and those two will get their book for free (if you have already purchased the book you will be refunded the amount paid).  This is a way that you and I can help your family member or maybe a friend reclaim some of their memories.  We can use your prints or if they are in digital form you can send them on dropbox, share on facebook, web-album, or thumb drive.  Please check out my website.  This offer is good from Sept. 2 until Dec. 31, 2017.  This is a great way to give something to your family that only you can do.
