Claudia did a fantastic job bringing a century-old photo of mine back to life!

Extremely fast turnaround and a courteous and professional individual with the museum-like skills.

I HIGHLY recommend her services for anyone looking to have a photo colorized and restored!



STEP 1 - send me a digital copy of your photo telling me what you would like done, by getting a quote. If you are unsure of what to have done and/or are just looking for some advice, you can still complete the quote form or if you prefer you can email me by clicking here.

STEP 2 - I analyse the photo and let you know how much it will cost and how long it will take. Sometimes the photos are too damaged or too low resolution and not able to be restored. If that is the case I shall let you know as well 

STEP 3 - Once you give me the go ahead, I will ask you to email me the best version you have of the photo and send you an invoice for a 50% deposit to start the work. Payments are via PayPal for buyer and seller protection. If you don't have PayPal, you can still pay the invoice as a PayPal guest by choosing to pay using your debit or credit card.

STEP 4 - Once I complete the restoration/colourisation, I will send you a proof for you to approve. At this point you can make any additional requests or tweaking and I will send you Proofs until you are completely happy with the result :)

STEP 5 - When you are happy, you pay the remaining 50% and I will email you the alchemised photo

Claudia’s patience is amazing and she is so kind and helpful.
She did a wonderful job on a photo I sent her recently. Very happy.
I would recommend her without a moments hesitation.
