We are so sorry for the loss of your friend’s baby. You can find out about the presence and availability of local photographers by searching on our Find a Photographer page.
When you access this page, our standard guidelines appear – once you have reviewed these, click “Continue” at the bottom of the screen if applicable. Then enter your postal code and a list of photographers in your area will generate. The ones listed in red are the Area Coordinators and/or Dispatchers. Please call them first.
Please note that all of our photographers are volunteers. There is no charge for our services. Our volunteers give their time and talent as a gift to the families. Many have full-time jobs and other commitments, so they might not be able to answer your call or get back to you right away. The hours are photographers take calls from 7:00 am – 10:00 pm in their local time zone.
Even if a photographer is available, please encourage your friend to take their own pictures! You can never have enough photographs of the baby even if they don’t look at them now or even in a year. They will never have to regret not taking more. Encourage them to take their time with their baby, bathe their baby if they are allowed, do footprints and handprints if available, dress their baby, and have alone time with their baby without guests as well.
If a photographer is unavailable, we welcome them to submit their own images for retouching.
