About

My Photographs is a personalized service that was directly inspired by our customers.

We’re photographers, who specialize in family portraits, so we understand how important family albums are. We had several customers ask if we could help them scan and save their many treasured photos, so they wouldn’t have to trust them to the postal service.

You see, every year, thousands of irreplaceable photos are lost or damaged during mail transit due to poor handling procedures, with some scanning services even sending them to other countries for processing. But scanning images on a home scanner is time prohibitive and offers mediocre results. So when a customer joked that we should just bring our office over to their house, we started wondering if there was a way that we could indeed do just that…

It took a lot of hard work to devise a system that could be taken anywhere. We managed to source high end, commercial quality scanning equipment that was portable and with our specially developed software, we can scan hundreds of professional quality images per hour. And, unlike mass production scanning houses, we offer professional photo restoration services. All this and your photographs never have to leave your home.

One of our fully insured, high-level background screened, professional technicians will come right to your home or place of business and work with you to scan your photos and upload the digital files. They will make sure you know exactly how to access your photos. If you’re too busy for a home visit, we’ll pick up your photos personally, scan them and hand deliver them back to you.

What makes our service truly unique is the secure website we’ve created that allows customers to view all their photos on a password protected viewing page. From there, you have the option to add the email addresses of friends and family, who may then acquire a print, or digital file. This makes it simple to share your precious memories with anyone, anywhere in the world.

We also offer an option for those of you that want to DIY at home. We can deliver within the Greater Vancouver, BC, area with full instructions on how to use our commerical-grade scanners yourself. We also have an option for those located elsewhere in Canada where we can ship directly to you as well.
