For those of you that have had your angel pictures touched up, may I ask who did them for you? I have people asking to see the pictures of Eva and Declan, but I feel quite selfish about them. I love them regardless of how they may appear to everyone else, but I am like a mama bear about how other's would react to them in their untouched state. I feel that the compromise, for me, is to get them touched up a little, so that I can keep their original pictures for myself. This is a bit of a ramble, so I hope this makes sense.

You can try to contact NILMDTS to see if they know of a restoration artist or photographer that does well with touch ups?

I spent time touching up some of Duncan's pictures. I'm not good with heavy touching up and I worried I'd have to do a lot with the pictures. I made them B&W because I don't like them in color due to lack of skin complexion. I removed bullae (water blisters) that were in the corner of his eyes and got rid of some of the vernix on his face, but that was it.

Angel Pics. I'm not certain about the quality of their work, but I've heard of families using them.

I feel exactly the same way Laurie. I had one person I showed make a very stupid remark so ever since then I only show his pics to certain people. I show everyone the close-up pics of his feet and hands though and that seems to be enough for my immediate family.

But I'd like to see if touched up pics looked nice enough to show people...so if you do find someone to do them and they turn out well please let me know!

I tried with Devin's but hated how it looked... the girl who did the picture for me was just someone a friend knows on another forum. she did a fantastic job, but I don't have her contact info anymore... which sucks because I have another photo I would like to have retouched.

Hi Diana. I don't think I had a chance to welcome you to the board. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I would love to see your pictures of Evan. I use Photobucket for my pictures. You open an account (it's free) and upload your pictures. Once they are uploaded, you use the [IMG] code provided by photobucket. All you need to do is paste the code into your post on JM, and it will show the picture.
As for the cute pictures you are asking about, I assume you mean our signatures? If you go to the main message board section and scroll down below where the grief and loss boards are, you will find a board called siggies r us. You go to that board and post your request for a siggy. One of the great ladies their will make own for you. Hope that helps.

I can understand the "mama bear" mentality. Nobody has seen pictures of Noah, not the ones that hospital took nor the ones that we took. He is the most beautiful baby boy I could ever imagine that would be my son, but I refuse to share the pictures with anyone for fear of harsh criticism (and we know how critics can be about pictures of stillborn angels).

I, personally, find all of the angels whose pictures are posted her to be positively beautiful. I just wish I could bring myself to share pics of Noah

No problem. I am OK for the moment. It really does go minute by minute at first. I know from experience that it will eventually be hour by hour, day by day, and so on. It is hard to believe that it has only been four days.
We are trying to choose an urn and what to have engraved on the urn. Do we get the same urn as Eva? I like the idea of them being similar. Hers was simple and I want the same for Declan's, but then I get angry at myself. They aren't bookends, for crying out loud. So, that is what I am doing today. Trying to make decisions I wish I never had to make. Thanks for asking about me, Diana. I don't think it ever gets better, but it does get easier. That's just my opinion.

Ladies have received criticism about their baby's pictures? How sad.

Laurie...I just don't understand whyyou have to be pickinbg another urn. It's just so unfair. It just makes me so sad...you probably feel sort of like a pro at this. It shouldn't be like this for you...

Barb-I would love to see pics of Noah. It took me about half a year before I posted Roald's pics here i nthe private section. I have always wanted to see Noah, Eva and Stephanie's twins too. I thin kthere are other women who haven't posted pics I'm sure I'm forgetting at the moment. But that is just a personal choice each mother has to make and I totally understand how hard it is to share those pictures with other people.

Laurie, I'm fairly certain that the link posted by LuxAeterna is the place that did Rebecca's photo for Ben and Logan's mommy but I could be wrong. The companies that do the work are amazing though!
