We have established what we refer to as our “Standard Gift,” which is outlined in detail on our Consent Form. It’s crucial for us to treat all families equally, and providing a standardized gift ensures fairness across the board. We understand your desire for as many images as possible of your baby, and we take the responsibility of curating images from these sessions very seriously.

During our photography sessions, our primary aim is to produce professional-quality portraits of your baby and capture moments that parents typically cannot capture on their own with a phone or camera. Skilled photographers often take multiple frames of the same setup, especially during sessions as significant as those conducted by Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. While these images may appear virtually identical, each frame may differ slightly in technical or artistic aspects. The photographer selects the best image from each sequence and meticulously edits it to ensure the highest quality for the final gallery.

Furthermore, our photographers are trained to encourage families to take their own photographs, providing an additional avenue for capturing precious moments. This allows you to have your own collection of images alongside those captured by our volunteer photographers. Additionally, taking your own photos ensures that you have color images and pictures of your baby when the photographer is not present.

Despite these explanations, we understand that you may still feel disappointed, and for that, we sincerely apologize. We hope that you can find solace and comfort in the beautiful photographs you currently have or will receive. It’s important to recognize that by adhering to a standard gift, we can continue serving over 4,000 families annually and expanding our reach to those who need our services during such challenging times.

Thank you for your understanding in advance. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to assist you in any way we can.
