Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

I announced a few months ago that I was accepted by the Charity Organization 'Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep' Last Friday evening I was called for the first time to provide my services. A young mother was in labor for her full term baby girl and no heartbeat was detected. The baby was born at approximately 03:00 am on June 28th, and I drove to UVA Hospital for my first NILMDTS shoot. It was a humbling experience. My prayers are with this young family as they grieve & struggle to heal. I know that my photographs are all this family will have in future years to remember this beautiful baby girl. For any parents who have suffered the loss of a child there is a wonderful support forum, for medical people, there is a forum for your input. Fellow photographers, if you think you would be able to provide these services, I urge you to check out the site. Give me a call, & I'll be happy to chat with you for a bit. Our artistry & gift can be an enormous step on the road to healing for these families.
Peace, Dottie
