Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) aims to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with a free gift of professional portraiture. NILMDTS educates and mobilizes professional quality photographers to provide beautiful heirloom portraits to families facing the untimely death of an infant. NILMDTS believes these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honouring the child’s legacy.
The AngelPics Project
The AngelPics Project has been created to donate photo retouching resources to the parents and families of a stillborn baby. Through this free service, their team’s skilled digital artists work with a digital copy of your original, eliminating medical equipment, removing marks and bruising, even replacing the background if desired.
