Capturing the moments

I have asked my friend Ashley, who owns Ashley Whitmoyer Photography, to take pictures during and after labor/delivery and for Carleigh's visitation and service. She takes great photos and I know she will do a wonderful job! (Thank you VERY much Ashley.) She is so sweet because she doesn't want any money for it either! However, we will be showing our appreciation in some way to her. I originally was going to have my Aunt Becky take pictures at the hospital but I decided it would be best to not have any family to do it. I would rather family be able to just be there for us and not have to worry about anything like that.

It may seem weird to want to take pictures at her visitation and service but also keep in mind that we will be experiencing a wide range of emotions and may not remember everything that took place or the little details. Hence, pictures!!! I will probably also have the service videotaped. Speaking of videotaping my best friend Lindsey is going to be videotaping once Carleigh arrives. Again, so family does not have to do it.

We will still be having Kim, who owns Mud Pie Photos and is affiliated with NILMDTS, come and take pictures of Carleigh also. No one has ever regretted having too many photos but I'm sure there are some who wish they would've taken more. I've also been given advice by many mommies to take TONS of pictures. So that is the plan!!! Next week we will be getting maternity photos done with her! Can't wait!

Ashley sounds great! That is so very awesome that you were able to find people close to you who were willing to help out. Pictures are awesome. I subscribe to the philosophy that you can never have too many pictures.
You want weird, my great aunt took pictures of all the kids with their mom's body in the casket at her funeral. Group photos and individual. THAT I didnt understand. You I do. You have so little time and you want each and every memory captured.

I just checked out Ashley's myspace page and her pictures are amazing! The girl in the white wedding dress-that's actually the exact same dress I have hanging in my closet! Again, LOVED the pictures!

Holly you are a very inspiring! I could never imagine going through all of this. It sure sounds like you have a wonderful family and friends to stand by your side. That is very important. I am sure Carleigh will be a very beautiful little girl. Well I will continue to follow your story and keep you in my prayers!
