Photos restored

A couple of babylost moms (Wendy & Brandy) have posted recently about photo restoration for your baby's pics. I actually requested to have one of Carleigh's done in September but then forgot about it when I didn't hear anything else. Seeing the recent posts about this service reminded me so I went and logged into my account and Carleigh's restored photo was there! I actually thought they'd email to me or something but it was a nice surprise to see! Thank you for the reminder ladies!

In the picture I chose (which is also the one on my sidebar), Carleigh's face is very dark and you can't really see her features too well. I think they did an amazing job! I can't believe how good her skin looks! I absolutely love it and am so grateful that this service is offered. If you have a photo you would like restored please check them out!

Jennifer and Christina also restored photos for me too, which I appreciate. You can see her face so much better! Thank you!!!!

These pictures are just beautiful! I might just check them out to work on my Faith and Grace's pictures. They were not very good quality photos...just some polaroids.

So glad you did this...

Betty said...

She is beautiful. What a great thing to do. I would have never thought of it. Thank you for sharing, Holly. I've been thinking about you a lot lately...and praying for you as always.

The same thing happened with Ella's pictures. I guess they dont notify you when they're done. She looks beautiful- untouched and retouched. It's nice to have the retouched ones. It helped me to see what she may have looked like had she been born alive. However, I still love her untouched photos best.

I love them! She is so beautiful!!! What an amazing service to offer for families.
So I had pics taken of my angel, but I was only between 19 and 21 weeks when he passed away. Do you think they can make them look more realistic? If that makes sense. His skin was still transparent and he is very red. I would love a more flesh colored picture to share with my children and display. I can't wait to see what they can do for me.

That's really neat. That is something I would be very interested in! Carleigh is a beauty!

Katrina said...

Oh my gosh, how awesome!! I agree that nothing can replace the original photo, but how amazing that you can do that. She's so pretty!!

Wow, Holly! This made Carleigh's beautiful pictures even more lovely and clear. What wonderful things these "angels" are doing to help bereaved parents.
Blessings, Sarita

I have heard about places that do the phoo restoration before but have never seen their work before. i have been too scared to get my photos done because if i dont like the outcome it is going to really upset me. I am also worried that they arent going to look like my boys. I might have to face my fears and check them out. Thankyou for posting this. Xxx

Wow those did turn out so beautiful. I know that you love them.

Mom Putnam said...

Wow, what a difference. Yes, like Katrina said you cant replace the original but it made such a difference and how it shows her beautiful features so much more. Another beautiful precious picture of our baby.

Lauren said...

Wow, that's amazing. I'm glad you have more pictures to remember Carleigh by. xoxo

Mary said...

I love it! Also going to have to have a look at this service! How special for you! She looks so beautiful!

Heather said...

Beautiful! And you just reminded me - I had them do one of Madelyn too and forgot all about it!

James Patrick said...

They did a wondeful job! I would say to all mothers that are worried about this service and afraid that the results will not look like your babies. Talk to the person doing the resoration and tell them what you are hoping to restore. Be very clear about what you would like to keep. I know several of my NILMDTS session I have corrected some issues but other I leave because the parents wishes. Also make sure you give them the best quality image you have. The better resolution the more they can correct.

How great. We had Ryan's done. They removed the vent and everything. They look a little weird because they had to rebuild his mouth when they removed the vent but I finally got to see his beautiful face without that piece of plastic in the way.

Blogger said...

They look incredible. You can appreciate her even just a little more in these pictures. Just beautiful. They did an amazing job.

Just Breathe said...

They are beautiful. What a wonderful service they provide.

Linda said...

Holly I am so glad they did that picture for you.

Carleigh is a precious baby girl who is alive in Heaven with Jesus... with our Anna, and our Samuel, and our Josiah...and all the precious ones that went to Heaven before us.

I rejoice that we will get to see them again. We miss them being here on earth with us...but I am glad we have our pictures and our memories with us until we see them again.

I love you Holly. And I am so happy that you are pregnant.
