PHOTO ORGANIZING & ARCHIVING

OUR CUSTOM SERVICES:

  • We organize your current photo library so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
  • We support our clients through the decluttering process. Photos are emotional triggers- we understand why it’s so hard to do this yourself.
  • We sort through old photos, help select which to scan and remove duplicates, with sensitivity and discretion.
  • The scans are incorporated into your current photo library.
  • We preserve and streamline family archives inherited through generations.
  • The prints are returned neatly organized and filed by date in archival containers.

  • We restore and touch up damaged and faded vintage prints.
  • Everything is archived, backed up to a hard drive, and uploaded to the cloud, so you can access it across all of your devices.
  • Peace of mind that photos are safe and accessible.
  • We offer annual or semi-annual maintenance plans to keep your digital life up-to-date.
  • For Video & Film:  We can digitize your nearly obsolete DV cam tapes, VHS & super 8 films so you can enjoy watching them once again. We create a log book with captured frames and an index to remind you of what’s on each tape or reel.

PHOTO ALBUMS & SCRAPBOOKS

OUR CUSTOM ALBUMS & SCRAPBOOKS:

  • Custom digital photo books for every year of your family’s life.
  • Photo books for travel & vacations.
  • Special gift books for events like milestone birthdays & anniversaries.
  • The wedding book you never got around to.

  • Baby books and Bar/Bat Mitzvah albums.
  • Beautiful, custom scrapbooks filled with photo prints and saved memorabilia for your children, your travels, your loved ones or for yourself!
  • We also refurbish heirloom family albums and vintage albums.

KIND WORDS

OUR STORY

Rachel Cohen DeSario and Bettina McCall founded Silk Purse Factory in 2009. We were both professional film editors with over 20 years in the business. We’d edited feature films, documentaries, TV shows and commercials, and worked in post-production management and sound editing. Our work experiences were amazingly similar, just separated by the Atlantic. We’ve also each had over 20 years of Mom experience. We realized that the same things that were important to us: keeping our family photo libraries up-to-date and organized, archiving the older materials and having the photos accessible, were something that everyone wants but few have time to do for themselves. Together we bring our professional experience, love of technology, organizational skills and sense of humor to your photos and home videos.
