"I wouldn’t even want to count the number of families I have served in my nine years as a volunteer for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, and every session is different. There’s no one way to approach these other than to just walk in, show love and compassion, and capture what you need to capture knowing that this is all the family will have.

For the most part, I do really well hiding behind the camera to get my job done. Sometimes I cry with the family if I keep my camera down too long. It’s when I get home and begin editing that I start mentally processing everything. It’s heart-wrenching but also so incredibly beautiful. It’s such an honor to witness families at their most vulnerable moments and capture these special times. It’s at times overwhelming for sure, but I can’t imagine not giving these families a chance to still study and learn about their babies even after they are gone."

Jasmine,

Losing you has undoubtedly been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. I never thought I would survive. I never thought I'd ever be happy again. Parents aren't supposed to outlive their children. Babies aren't supposed to die. Learning to live without you has been a very difficult journey.

Your death has inspired me to help other families that have lost their precious babies.
