That smile

image

I have lots of pictures of Juliette in frames around the house, but the thing is, they’re old and I’m sadly used to seeing them. But I found this picture at the weekend, tucked between some papers and other photos, and it feels new. I love how she’s looking straight at you. She often is in her photos. It’s almost like she knew how much they would mean.

  2. She was just so special. I have some photos of her in my albums somewhere – I shall find them and scan them for you so you can have some more “new” memories of your wonderful daughter and her smile. x

    • That would be so lovely, Debbie. My sister-in-law was here at the weekend (which prompted the photo rummaging) and she also told me she had some others I’ve never seen. You have no idea what a treasure ‘new’ pictures are. xx

  3. I too treasure photos – I’ve looked at my son’s pictures longer than I looked at him. I understand that feeling. Geves, if you email me a picture that is higher res, I’ll create an image with a butterfly background for you. My son was glowing in many pictures and I feel as if he must have known how special those memories would be.

    • It’s funny you feel the same way about Jason’s pictures. Juliette love being photographed and I always think you can see so much of her personality, like your son’s in his too. That is such a kind offer, Judy. I’ll look for a better quality picture, but. like you, all our memories are pre-digital and the scanning isn’t great. Actually, I took this one of a print using my phone…very low tech!

      • I can do a lot with scans. Is there a place that can scan pictures for you where you live? I highly recommend it for archival reasons. What’s also amazing is how the color can be brought back and restored. Think about it. I’d scan pics for you, but I live far from you. But I would love to make you a special print.

      • Judy, I would love that, thank you. I’ve been up to my neck trying to finish editing my book before starting a new job, but I will get some photos of Juliette scanned at a place close by.

      • I’ve been working on my book for three years now and totally relate. Our book is a metaphor for our life, you know. I find my passion for it is a blanket that has comforted me greatly. Good luck with your book, Geves, and send me a photo when you’re able. If I have a chance, I’ll play around with your lo-res one to show you some options. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, I really think she is too. I would love for you to read my book. I’m finishing off the final edit at the moment and will keep you posted about publishing news.
