I remember the end of my pregnancy & those early in the magical, sleepy newborn haze oh days so well. There is no way they were nearly 17 months ago. But here we are, with a toddler playing in my filing cabinet at my feet as I think about that time… and then about the sweet families experiencing that season right now. A monumental milestone in any family – true life change – one highly anticipated and prepared for, but one that was never expected to be alongside a pandemic.
I’ve been wanting to serve in some way – in a time when releasing expectations of what it would have looked like is hard. You are not alone, friend.
So, I am thrilled to be a part of the team of photographers led by Laura Foote Photography to offer something sweet to make your priceless memories ones of even more beauty.
✨ Any/all families who recently welcomed their sweet babe or are expecting & due during the months of April and May 2020 are invited to submit up to 10 iPhone/DSLR images from their maternity/labor/delivery/birth/recovery time for COMPLIMENTARY professional retouching & gallery delivery. These moments are precious, and priceless. And we are honored & excited to help you preserve them.
From the hearts of 6 mamas to you, you are not alone. I may not be able to bring you a home cooked meal, but it’s the least I can do to share some beautiful edits with you.
Oh how precious are these babies, these strong mamas, these families. Photograph those special moments… but don’t stress too much! Pass the camera (phone is totally ok!) to your partner for a special moment captured, ask a sweet nurse to snap that first family photo, or wheel your babe’s bassinet to a window for a close up of all the sweet details. The first sibling moment, the fur baby giving a sniff, and the cozy snuggles at home. Whatever your journey is, we want to help and are honored to stand alongside you, editing software & a helping hand ready to go.
During this spring 2020 timeframe & the months of April & May 2020 (and beyond if needed), we are offering complimentary editing for expecting families (any/all/anywhere!) You are invited to submit up to 10 photos from maternity, labor, delivery, birth, recovery etc. for professional retouching & a gallery will be returned to you! **Google log-in required to access the form & upload your files. Email email@example.com with any questions/issues!
And for a peek at real life families just like you who have already received their galleries, you’ll find some before & afters (all shared with permission) in this blog post!
All of these are cell phone images of the most precious moments that we just can’t get back, and it’s such an honor to be able to offer something so small to make sure these moments are beautifully preserved, especially during this unprecedented time.
Please complete this form to submit your images (Google log-in required// email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions!), or share with a family you know!
Do you know a new parent or expecting family? Please share this blog post with them! We’d be honored to serve!
Additionally, because people have been asking, all editing up to 10 images is complimentary but there is an opportunity for families to donate directly when they submit. A portion of every donation will go directly to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization that equips photographers to serve families with timeless photography upon losing a baby. Laura Foote, who began this movement of editing photos for families welcoming their babies during Covid-19, serves as one of the photographers for NILMDTS. We are honored to give in this way through your generosity!
Should you be interested in donating, even if you are not submitting images for retouching, we are grateful for you making it possible to help support NILMDTS. The link to donate is here: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/laurafoote/ (Paypal account not required)
Mamas, dadas, & babies, we are cheering you on! All our love to you!
Honored to be serving families alongside a team led by Laura Foote Photography (who is also delivering her second baby girl in the next month!) including: Hello Jude Photography | Kat Gassaway Photography | Marissa Moss Photography | Kari Me Photography
