Capturing the First Precious Hours

ve8QAd   |   October 01, 2006

Three years ago Holly Marie Spoonley was divorced because of an abusive relationship. She was pregnant, afraid and didn’t know how she was going to survive. She drove past the Osceola Pregnancy Center in Kissimmee, Florida where she lived. The sign offered free pregnancy tests. She went in and was surprised at the love, compassion and support she received from total strangers. About the time of her daughter’s birth, her love for photography blossomed. She began to take portrait pictures of friends and acquaintances. Many encouraged her to do more with this talent.

Reflecting back on Allison’s birth inspired her to offer this talent to the crisis pregnancy center. Holly wanted to capture on film the very first precious moments of bonding between the mother and her baby for them to remember forever. Holly went back to the crisis pregnancy center that was so much help to her and her daughter Allison. She shared her plan with the director of the center. Holly thought every mother who comes through the center should be offered a free photo session and 8×10 picture of the mother and baby in the hospital. The center was more than happy to accept Holly’s generous and heartwarming offer. What an encouragement this would be to many mothers who are facing what often is a very difficult time in their lives.

Now each pregnant woman who visits Osceola Pregnancy Center is given a flyer to be redeemed on the baby’s birthday. Holly feels it may possibly be just the positive gesture to persuade them to choose life for their babies.

Your local center, or some other individual in the community, may be interested in offering this touching service to expectant mothers. If so, feel free to contact Holly Marie Spoonley at Timeless Treasures Photography, 4085 Cannon Court, Kissimmee, FL 34746. Phone 407.592.1885.
