Helping You Share Your Memories for 30 Years

By Frank Distefano, Co-Owner of Fleetwood Photo & Digital

A great many things come to mind when I reflect back on our three decades in business. When my wife and business partner, Doris, and I first launched Fleetwood Photo & Digital in 1985, we couldn’t have imagined the changes and technological advances that would occur during the next 30 years.


Opened originally as a one-hour photo shop, we’ve experienced many advances that required a great deal of change as we navigated through the new technologies that ushered in today’s new digital world. These new technologies, often referred to as “disruptive advancements” by the marketplace experts, were just as their name implies. But rather than ignore these advancements, we embraced them. The result was a host of new services we offered our customers that we couldn’t have even imagined a few years earlier.

Despite all these changes, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the opportunity to interact and build lasting relationships with the most important component of our business, our customers. The same infants whose photos we developed 30 years ago are now bringing in their wedding photos and photos of their own newborns for further processing, framing, or any other specialty services we offer that were unavailable three decades ago.

Perhaps the greatest enjoyment we’ve experienced from our long tenure in business has been the opportunity to capture your family’s special moments and help you share them with future generations. But if you’d like to take full advantage of all the technological advances Fleetwood Photo & Digital can offer you and your family, I invite you to visit us and discover the many ways we can help you preserve your memories or capture new memories as they’re being created.
