That's so disappointing. Could they perhaps burn them onto a disc for you instead of outright deleting them?

I asked, and she said no. "It's like they never existed." All I have to remember them by is the little, tiny, black & white, fuzzy printout of a proof sheet.

Wow, that's too bad. Hopefully you can find a different photographer for next time.

It's a national chain and against their policy, and the local store manager was really nice about it. She even said something to the effect of "It's a shame that the sickos out there have ruined it for people like you and me who use their bodies for their intended purpose".

I did call the fancy shmancy photographer who's done all of our family events - my and my sister's Bat Mitzvahs, my wedding and her first wedding, newborn pics for both of us and pregnancy pics for me..... When he did my pregnancy and newborn pics, he didn't charge a sitting fee and gave us a free 8x10 in exchange for signing a "model contract" that he could use the photos (as approved by me) for advertising. I asked if he did breastfeeding pictures and if he had any interest in doing something similar and he said yes! So I'm really excited - I'm going to meet with him next week.

YAY!!!!!

The lady from the photo place called tonight and said that even though they're not allowed to take nursing pictures and they removed it from my order, it somehow arrived with the rest of my order! I'm so so so excited because it came out so great. I'll try to scan it this weekend so I can post it here.

Was able to scan picture at my parents' house tonight (excuse my 4th-day hair):

Obviously you were meant to have that picture.

I wanted to bump this thread with a picture a friend took of me nursing in public:



I'm pretty sure no one realized I was walking around and breastfeeding

That's cute, Iris! I've done the same thing with Lydia a few times, but I don't have a pic.
