Leander and Louise

Twins Leander and Louise on their mum's chest. The portrait was commissioned by a friend who accompanied the twin's mother through labour. On the first anniversary of the twin's loss, the friend gave the mother this thoughtful memento of her babies to show she had not forgotten.

Karl and Edda

Karl and Edda

These two angel baby siblings are drawn in the arms of their father. They were born some time apart in separate pregnancies, but Karl and Edda's parents wanted a keepsake picture which showed the two siblings together. A drawing can facilitate such a wish.

Philipp's father read about angel baby portraiture a startling 45 years after losing his son. Almost half a century after their loss, Philipp's family again held at least a picture of him in their hands.

I'm not sure what I want for my baby's portrait ...

That's ok.

Losing a child is probably the hardest thing anyone will ever have to do. Given the immensity of this loss, you may find comfort in getting to spend some more time with your baby in the intimate act of memorialisation.

 

In designing with us a beautiful and respectful memento of your child, you will be actively involved in shaping how you want to remember and commemorate your baby. This can be an empowering and cathartic experience on your grief journey, and produces at the end a keepsake which you can truly treasure.

Of course it is not the same as having your baby there with you, and does not make up for a lifetime of lost moments together. But we hope that their portrait will help you remember them, help express how much they mean to you, and legitimise your feelings of love, grief and parenthood.
