A Step Beyond Restoring

Here is a business idea that clients might like. After restoring an old photo, do something special with it. I have done a few of these for different people, after showing them a sample and letting them know that such a thing was possible...most folks never thought of it so would not ask for it.

This is the first one I made, which gave me the idea. It's a picture of my parents a few years after they were married. My mom had an old newspaper clipping of a poem stuck in the frame of a portrait of her and my dad, who passed away many years ago. I secretly copied it and made up this gift for her for Mother's Day, in an 8x10 frame, using a snapshot from her old family album. She said it was the best gift she ever received. And, some of her friends who saw it asked for similar items, so I think this might be popular with lots of folks, once they know you can do it.

I can understand why your mother said that was the best gift she ever received. Beautiful job on something that will be cherished forever.
