About Us

Anchor 1

We are a boutique "white glove" photo restoration
studio located in the heart of North Central Florida.
We will thoughtfully care for your fragile,
climate sensitive and irreplaceable memories,
all with precision attention to detail.

As owner of Soaring Kite Image Restoration, it is my passion to know that I am helping preserve your unique family history. And so we always begin with a free consultation to determine your specific needs.

My studio uses state-of-the-art technology and expertise to restore your original photo prints, slides, newspaper articles, documents and more. We perform high resolution scanning, and we ensure safe and secure transfer of your keepsakes to an easily shareable digital format.

Upon completion, you will receive professional quality prints on archival photo paper as well as high resolution digital files of your restored keepsakes.

My team and I love hearing the stories behind each of these photographs, and much of our job satisfaction comes from seeing our clients' joyous reactions when they receive their restored images.

Do you outsource?

No, we do NOT.

All of our work is performed right here in our Florida studio. So, if you are skeptical about the idea of your original photos being sent out to another country for scanning and retouching, you can take confidence in knowing we are the local studio you can trust.

Is it true that you will drive to my location?
Other retouchers require you to mail your photos to them. If you like, and you live within driving distance, I will personally pick up your original photos and care for them as if they were my own. The safety and security of door-to-door service means your photos will never leave my hands. If you prefer not to let your photographs out of your possession, I would be happy to perform the high resolution scanning at your location from within our mobile studio. Once the work is completed, I will personally deliver your retouched prints and your originals back to you.

What if I don't live within driving distance?

If you do live out of town, restoring your photographs is no problem! We have done work for clients who live throughout the United States. We will guide you through the best and safest mailing procedure

for your particular situation.
