DIANNE GLENN: THE MEMORY TREE, A PHOTO RESTORATION
AND ORGANIZATION COMPANY

Remember when you actually took photos with a camera and not a phone? See how those faded snaps and negatives from years ago can be brought back to life. Come and hear how your photos can be preserved for years to come, even those old photos that have been damaged and need some restoration. Since entering the field of photography in 1974 Dianne has continued to learn, take on new challenges and hone new skills. These days, Dianne uses her expertise to digitize, copy, create and restore many of the photos you have saved and they in turn can be transformed into your very own Memory Tree.
