Photo Restoration

Carmela D'Agosto & John Germano

I am deeply passionate about family photos, especially those of generations passed. These photos give a face … a feeling to an ancestor that we may never have had the chance of meeting. They connect the memories of past and present and should be cherished and preserved. Unfortunately, once these photos are lost there is no way to replace them.

Restoring these photos digitally is a way to preserve them in a format that can be saved forever. I have helped others with their photos in the past and am always open to doing more. If you are able to and interested in making a donation it is greatly appreciated, but I do not charge for this service. It is something I do because I feel it is important and not everyone has the ability to do it themselves.

If you have an old photo that is close to your heart and is in need of repair or restoration, please contact me and I will try my best to help.
