Some of you know that in 2003 my daughter gave birth to twin boys prematurely and they both died. Since then I have often thought of taking my photography skills and using them to photograph these babies so that their families will have them down the road. As a person that has had to deal with this loss I can tell you that portraits never crossed my mind that day in the hospital. I wish now that someone had suggested this to us that day.
Jump forward to today and an e-mail I got from Marathon press with a story about an organization that does this very thing. It is called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and they are looking for photographers all over the country that are willing to donate their time to help these families in their time of grief.
We have such a huge amount of talented photographers here that I thought I would post a link to thier website in hopes that maybe a few of you would check it out and maybe even get involved. Marathon Press is even donating brochures for this service to the photographers that are signed up with this organization.
This is a difficult time for these families and we can use our skills to help them through it. If you have a minute please check it out. If you are able to help them in your area that would be great.
