A testimonial on the Heartfelt photography website warms and grips the heart in equal measures.“When our baby was stillborn, I feared I would in time forget her. I wanted to hang on to every moment and absorb every detail of her soft skin, beautiful face, 10 perfect fingers, 10 perfect toes, her huge feet and hands and how tall and gorgeous she was,” the words read.

Michelle Dobson and Leighsa Cox are two of the latest recruits.
