A Note from Tom
I developed an early interest in photography thanks to my father who shared his photographic hobby with me in the mid 70's. Our photography business is named in his memory. It is our love and dedication to family that inspires us to help you capture your story and preserve it for generations to come.

Bringing the Past alive

We have a thing for the past. There’s something about those old black and white photos that help us remember the good ol’ days, loved ones that have passed or those cherished family memories that can’t be repeated.

Capturing these old time images is a passion of ours. We love developing clever ideas and creating the most realistic scenes possible for our customized portrait sessions. These sessions are suited for individuals, families, or other groups who want to have fun with their portrait session.

Imagine a 1950’s teenage sleepover, a western scene where mom and dad are tied up by their bank-robber kids, or we can re-create some classic Hollywood icon. Work with us to fully develop your ideas and who knows what we can create. Click the link above to view our Nostalgic Gallery of images.

We can even create a custom video of your photo session like we did with our “Charlie Chaplin” session below.. Tell us your ideas – we would help create something very special and unique!
