As many of you know I'm a photographer as well as a stay at home mother. Occasionally I photograph Weddings, Engagements, Maternity, Newborn, Family, Senior Portraits, etc;.
It's been a great way to allow me to be home with my kids and help support the family still.
This last weekend I photographed two great friends wedding! I've know Marissa since we were in gradeschool and Darren and I have attended the same church for around 10 years! Needless to say I was super excited when they asked me to photograph the wedding.
The whole day came and went without one problem. It was a fantastic, beautiful, and extremely fun wedding to be a part of.
When I got home I put all the photos on my external hard drive in hopes of editing a few of them that night and uploading them onto my Facebook page. I have a lot of friends from the church who were chomping at the bit to see a couple of the photos.
3 minutes after loading ALL of the wedding photos onto the hard drive, it crashed.
The computer wouldn't even recognize that it was plugged in.
This is where my life ended.
Not only was I now going to have to figure out how to tell my closest friends/neighbors that I'd lost every single photo from there wedding day but I'd also lost all of my family photos from the time that Lily was a newborn.
Thankfully, my Mother works with a wonderful man named Bill who spent half of his work day retreiving the erased photos of the wedding from my SD card! I could have kissed him.
Without him I wouldn't have gems like this stored in my computer...
That being said I still need everyones prayers as I send out my damaged hard drive in hopes of retreiving all of my familys photos.
The purpose of this post is to also remind everyone to ALWAYS have more than one backup of your precious memories.
Wish us luck.
