Restoring Old Photographs

Family trees can be greatly enhanced when an image of the person is included.  So if you find an old, worn-out photo, arrange to have it restored and enlarged to suit your needs.  Future generations can enjoy the names and images and see if any family members have inherited the facial characteristics of their ancestors.

★★★★★Face Photography Review

“Your easy going nature and ability to connect with the kids showed through in the photographs as they were completely at ease and were happy and relaxed and enjoyed playing with the props. We are so happy with the final product; we have got all of our prints proudly on display and have received many wonderful compliments. We would not hesitate in recommending you to any of our friends and family.”

“Having a great photo was essential”

An appreciative client made this comment after his daughter’s painting was one of 38 chosen out of 200 entries for a Fringe competition this year. 

They attempted to photograph the portrait themselves but were not happy with the result. A list-minute request to ask Face Photography to take the photograph was made and this brought much relief and satisfaction to the talented artist.

Congratulations Margie-we hope you will be awarded with The Emma Hack prize for your amazing depiction!

It’s great to have the parents and grandparents and even great-great grandparents come along to enjoy the session.  Sometimes all the attention can be distracting for the child but in this case, the little girl simply interacted with all the props and toys and she had fun. The shady park setting was the ideal place for her to relax and explore the surroundings with her vintage props.

Stimulating a child’s imagination in this way can be a rewarding experience.

Personal Photography Requests…

Sometimes clients ask for a specific look to their photographs.  For example, an object can be highlighted white the rest of the photo is in black and white.

What time of the day is best for outdoor photography?

Face Photography receives this question frequently and contrary to popular belief, a bright, sunny part of the day is a nightmare for a photographer!  It’s always better to shoot in overcast, low-light parts of the day. After sunrise and just before sunset, depending on the season, is an ideal time to get some great photos.  We often find that the photos convey a certain mood during these times of the day.  Anytime is winter is perfect too as the lighting is generally soft.  If it’s necessary to photograph during peak sunlight, then it’s important to find a shady area such as under a tree.
