I recently placed a post-it note on my computer screen that asks – What do you want your photo collection to look like in ten years?
Although it was meant mostly as a reminder to me, it's now a question I ask my clients as well when starting a new project with them.

It is not very realistic to retouch and restore every print that I scan, but the good ones, maybe images I will want to print in an album, I will take some time and fix them up. It is very cool to see an old yellowed, faded and damaged print look like new (almost).Read More
