Kim Repede

Photographer and Photo Restoration Artist


In my career as a corporate video and meeting producer, I was fortunate to work on some truly inspiring projects with many creative individuals along the way. I worked on graphics for print and projection screens, video productions and website development.

I discovered how much I enjoyed restoring old photographs when my mother asked if I could fix some of her childhood photos. The picture from the 1940's of the two girls in the backyard is actually my aunt and my mother on her First Communion day. The photo of the little boy with a fish is my cousin. I restored several other family photos while working on my father's 80th birthday photo book. The true enjoyment for me comes from seeing how happy people are when they see their damaged photographs brought back to life.
Rather than relying solely on automatic software settings used in restoring photographs, I focus on the details, making sure to correct as much of the damage as possible, painting in missing pieces, correcting color and removing dust, scratches, water marks and tears. 
How do we get started? Please click on "Send Photos for Restoration" for details. If you live in the Austin, Texas area I will be happy to meet with you in person. Feel free to call or email me to set up a meeting. If you live outside the Austin area you can mail, UPS or FedEx your photos directly to me. 
There is also a chat button in the lower right corner. If I am not on-line now just leave me a note and I will get back to you within a day.
Thank you.
