“Celebrate Mom” Photography Series: A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Introducing our exclusive ‘Celebrate Mom’ photography series, where we celebrate the unsung heroes of family moments – moms! Moms are often the ones behind the camera, capturing precious memories but rarely seen in them. It’s time to change that! This Mother’s Day, we’re putting Moms front and center, where they rightfully belong.

As a child, I never once thought my mom should lose weight, wear more makeup, or dress better. (Yep, that’s me bugging my baby brother as per usual.) She was my mom, my caretaker, my biggest fan. I loved her unconditionally, and, as an adult, I cherish the rare moments where she handed the camera to Dad and stepped in front of it.

Our ‘Celebrate Mom’ series is designed to shine a spotlight on the incredible women who tirelessly capture every milestone, laughter, and tear but often go unnoticed in family photographs. Let’s remember at this very moment what we love most about our moms by setting aside time to create a portrait together. Whether it’s a candid moment at home, a playful outdoor session, or a cozy studio shoot, we’ll capture the essence of what makes Mom truly special.

This isn’t just about taking pictures; it’s about honoring the relationships between moms and their children.

  • Each child will write or draw a picture of what they love most about their mom
  • Moms will write what they want to remember most about each child at this age
  • (If you want to include Dad, we’ll ask him what he loves about his wife as a mom)

The answers to these questions will be memorialized on her favorite portrait from the Celebrate Mom photoshoot!

Photograph Restoration of an Heirloom Family Portrait

Every now and then, we get the opportunity to touch someone’s life in a unique way. When we were approached with this original wallet-sized family portrait, we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us. There were obvious signs of wear, poor storage, and discoloration.

By hand, we meticulously removed each scratch and blemish. Then we painstakingly painted in missing areas, recreating vital features that identify the models as the beloved parents and friends people know. Piece by piece, scratch by scratch, we were able to draw out the original image hidden beneath years of wear and tear. We channeled our inner Baumgartner, relishing in the slow but very satisfying process and leaving as much of the original texture and photo as we could.

In addition to cleaning up the photo itself, we also gently increased the size for a larger reprint. This involves increasing the image size in increments of no more than 10% at a time until you reach the desired size. Of course, there are limits. But we were able to create a file big enough to print 5×7 rather than the original wallet size.

What’s involved in having your favorite photograph restoration completed? Send us a high quality scan of the original image or mail it and we’ll take care of scanning. Once the photograph has been restored, you can use the digital restoration file to share with family and friends or make new prints!
