Butterfly Footprints creates a special memorial keepsake for parents who have lost a baby. I take the footprints of the baby's feet & turn them into an image of a butterfly.
Butterflies are a common symbol associated with the death of a child.
Butterflies also have a religious meaning. They are a symbol for new life. This is based on its various stages of life. The caterpillar represents the mortal life of people here on Earth. The cocoon compares with death. The caterpillar breaks out of its cocoon & emerges with a new body as a beautiful butterfly, just as human beings emerge from death into new life.
The image is created for the family free of charge. The parents or family member can save the low resolution image off the website for personal use.
If the family would like a high quality professionally printed image snail mailed to them or a digital high quality copy emailed to them those services are also available. Please see the instructions listed on the request page.
