Photo restoration is a digital artistic process used to fix and restore old or damaged photographs. Using sophisticated software; scratches, cracks, and blemishes or vibrant colors of the original shot are restored. We can remove other people from the shot or add natural-looking color to a black and white photo. Airbrushing can soften skin tone and remove wrinkles. Professional restoration can make a person look thinner, tanner, or remove distracting elements. Creative photo restoration projects can rebuild or re-create missing portions of an image; add new backgrounds; create collages and unique photo designs.
We will first scan the photograph or artwork and make a digital copy. Then using sophisticated software we will transform the damaged original photo into a treasured memory. MAVZPIX prints only on museum quality fine art papers/canvas with archival inks and finishes prints with archival UV protective spray coatings. Your new photos and artwork will last a lifetime!

All MAVZPIX photographic art prints are Mary Alice Valvoda’s limited edition original photographs. She personally photographs, digitally processes, artistically designs, and giclée prints them (using archival pigment inks) on fine art papers or canvas. She mounts them on acid free foam board and mats them with traditional matte materials and/or complementary color double photographic mattes – which she designs. Framing finishes the art prints. Each picture is professionally finished with glass or acrylic glazing, dust covers, and appropriate hanging hardware.
All images are available in a variety of sizes, fine art paper or canvas substrates, and a selection of frames.
Sizes range from 8x10 to 24x40. All are affordably priced.
MAVZPIX also has giclée prints of selected local artists who have contracted with Mary Alice to scan/print/frame copies of their work.

What is a CUSTOM PHOTO PROJECT?
A Custom Photo Project means more than restoration – as a matter of fact, restoration may not even be a part of the project. Custom Photo Projects might include one or many more of the following: colorizing; montages; collages; new backgrounds; text; vignettes; painted looks; photographic mattes; IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA, LET’S TRANSFORM THAT IDEA INTO AN IMAGE! The examples here will let you see how clients’ ideas were transformed into unique personal or business images!
