Aging photographs can time warp via the image-enhancing touch of Techlab's photo-restoration services, including color correction, contrast adjustment, and cleaning. A variety of high-end services, such as picture-slideshow creation and custom photo-book printing are also available to capture the many souls of life's memories.

The media-preservation team at Photo-60 is working against time. As old photographs and Super 8 reels slowly crumble and fade after years of use, the team scans these precious keepsakes and stores them in more durable digital formats. The center employs a high-speed Kodak scanner—which transforms 1,000 photographs into high-resolution JPEG files within 24 hours—and an 8mm projector that transcribes flicker-free images onto a digital sensor frame by frame. Though some photos may be irreparably damaged due to fire or drawn-on mustaches, Photo-60’s staff can breathe new life into creased, torn, or faded images with a combination of traditional and digital restoration techniques.

The staffers at The Frame Shop, KH Art Lorton, and Art & Framing Studio of Kingstowne stock top-quality Larson-Juhl moldings in a spectrum of thicknesses, materials, and colors. To fit mats to these frames, the staffers cut them with precise tools such as Wizard International machines and dangerously sharp yardsticks. Their techniques include cutting v-grooves into mats and matching eye-catching glass with eco-friendly framing materials.
Backed with a quarter-century of experience in the framing industry, the artisans at Lorton Art and Framing enshrine artworks and keepsakes within a spectrum of custom materials. Eco-friendly frames and matting can encircle posters, and preservation glass protects sentimental masterworks for the harmful glare of sunlight or a laser pointer. For clients looking for more things to frame, purchasable works from local artists grace the gallery's walls alongside prints from renowned artists from across the known universe. Future Picassos can also develop their creative skills in all-ages art lessons at the Lorton location.
I love turning a previous moment into a visual memory that you can look back and relive. I specialize in newborn, children, family portraits and events such as weddings and birthday parties. You don't always need a special occasion to get pictures taken!
