Can NILMDTS take photos if our child is not a baby?
Thank you for reaching out to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. Unfortunately, our services are specifically focused on providing remembrance photography to parents experiencing the loss of a baby during the pregnancy or shortly after and we are not equipped to support photography requests for others who are terminally ill. Currently, our services extend to families that have not had a chance to take their baby home making this their only opportunity to receive the gift of professional remembrance photography.
While our volunteers may offer help on an individual basis, our mission is tailored to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue.
We encourage you to reach out to the hospitals or hospice facilities in your area to see if they might have some knowledge of volunteers who provide end-of-life portraits. If that fails, you may find local organizations that specialize in photography for diverse circumstances by searching “photography non-profit near me.”
