The year is 1945. First off, I have to point out the fabulous mid-’40s hairstyles and dresses. As the California’s resident ‘Raconteur d’Retro’, Charles Phoenix would say, “I KNOWWW!!!”. Absolutely reet petite. These young ladies are my mother-in-law, Beverly, her sister, Rosalie, and their mother near the end of World War II. As you can see, I’ve chosen to completely replace the background with a nice array of cumulus clouds. The real trick, however, was colorizing the girls’ dress patterns by hand – well, by mouse.

At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!
