Sharyn established Photo Refuge LLC following a 20-year career in data analysis, project management, and strategic planning.
Her passion for photos started at a young age, when she enjoyed looking through photo albums from the 1940s to the 1970s. In high school, she took photography classes, started scrapbooking, and spent one summer sorting and labeling family photos from the early 1900s to the 1960s. She continues to enjoy traveling with her husband and creating photo albums, photo books, and slideshows to capture those adventures (national parks are a favorite destination). Her parents and sisters entrusted all of the family photos to her when her parents decided to downsize, which is when she began experimenting with digitization and electronic sharing of photos. Sharyn also has experience organizing 20+ years of photos for a Virginia state agency's digitization efforts.
She relies on her attention to detail, organization skills, and passion for storytelling to customize solutions for her clients.
Photo Refuge helps with digitization and organization of photographic memories. We are located in Richmond, Virginia, and enjoy working with individuals, families, photographers, and businesses - any entity that desires to preserve a photographic history.
We are passionate not just about digitizing images, but also about sharing, utilizing, and backing up the images so that a variety of individuals can enjoy and benefit from them in the future.
