While in Las Vegas for the WPPI convention this past March we met some amazing people, were inspired by the incredible work of fellow professionals and learned about great new photography products. But the most significant information we received was not about the newest lenses, lighting or album products, instead it was about an amazing foundation. A foundation that touches the lives of mothers, fathers and families when they might not even know they need it.
The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep foundation consists of a group of professional wedding photographers located throughout the country who volunteer their time with parents that have lost a child upon delivery. The NILMDTS mission statement is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the gift of professional portraiture. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring their child’s legacy.
While we will not be blogging about the specifics of our work with NILMDTS for obvious reasons, we want everyone to know that we are committed to this organization and will continue to spread the word about their mission. This work is heartbreaking but well worth it.
We all know someone who has suffered the loss of a child. We encourage all of the professional photographers that read our blog, follow us on Facebook or twitter, to strongly consider giving your time to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. The photographs we give families are quite possibly the only pictures they will have of their baby. These images are professional photographs, fully edited and complimentary. To all of our other followers, please spread the word about this amazing foundation.
We are honored to be able to associate ourselves with NILMDTS and offer this special gift of portraits at a time when it may be difficult to focus on remembering a baby.
