Image_202304170916

You will find fulfillment by volunteering your talent to families experiencing the loss of a baby. The professional-level photographs you will gift can turn a hidden pain into healing for bereaved families, bring awareness to a community, and provide a sense of honor to you.

Our Affiliated Photographers walk alongside families during some of their only moments with their babies. The majority of our sessions take place at hospitals and all photos are gently retouched in black and white.

The Affiliated Photographer position requires an application and evaluation of photography and lighting skills.

Mission Statement

To introduce remembrance photography to parents experiencing the loss of a baby with a free gift of professional portraiture.

Description

'Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep' (NILMDTS) is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization. All proceeds go directly into the operation of this organization to help parents who are experiencing an early infant loss.

NILMDTS offers the gift of healing, hope and honor to parents experiencing the death of a baby through the overwhelming power of remembrance portraits. Professional-level photographers volunteer their time to conduct an intimate portrait session, capturing the only moments parents spend with their babies. Parents are gifted with delicately retouched heirloom black and white portraits free of charge.

These priceless images serve as an important step in the healing recovery for bereaved families. NILMDTS remembrance photography validates the existence and presence of these precious babies by honoring their legacy.

NILMDTS recruits, trains, and mobilizes professional quality photographers around the world. Through NILMDTS, medical personnel are given a meaningful option to offer bereaved parents by creating remembrance portraiture for their babies.

Through further engagement in the organization, such as the NILMDTS Remembrance Walk and online support, families become a part of a compassionate and supportive community. Parents gain a sense of inclusiveness, alleviating the alienation and perception of being alone in their pregnancy or infant loss journey.
