Project: Exist in Images
Roles: Owner, Legacy Image Specialist
Exist in Images is a preservation service for legacy photographs and other analog media. I scan or photograph images in high resolution, make color corrections, and repair damage. The client receives full-resolution files for archiving and printing, and web-sized resolution files for sharing online.
Web and Print Design
I developed the Exist in Images website with a customized WordPress theme, and used my own family photo collection to fill out the design.
Below is a tri-fold brochure with condensed information from the website.
Images and video can be assembled into slideshow videos with licensed music, so families can share their stories over social media.
As I work on archiving my personal collection, I’ve enjoyed sharing my discoveries, processes and advice on social media.
Negatives are no problem… I go through them with a light box to decide which ones will get loaded into the scanner frame.

I’m using an antique cookbook stand to hold albums for photographing. Cuts down wear and tear of unbinding the book just to document the pages (which usually have great notes!) I’ll pull the ribbon *only if necessary* to lay pages flat on the scanner, for high-resolution. pic.twitter.com/aij5EOiwvE

Portraits from the early 20th Century are so …severe. Candid photos are so striking in comparison!
I think this is my great grandmother, but no one is left to confirm. I hope it is, because I think I’d like to be smiling like this woman, 20 years from now. pic.twitter.com/ccDmGrXmj5
