Volunteer Work

Some of you know that I volunteer for an organization called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS). This organization has more than 3200 volunteer photographers and graphic artists all across the world. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep provides bereavement photography to families facing the impeding loss or sudden loss of an infant/newborn. Every baby should be remembered and honored.

I have the honor of photographing little angels in the Kansas City area. I also serve as the Area Coordinator for Kansas City, which means I generally get the call first from the hospitals to request a photographer's services. If I am unable to serve this family, I find another photographer in the KC area, of which are fabulous.

The Today Show on NBC showcased an affliate NILMDTS photographer and a family in the Minnesota (?) area yesterday. If you are work, be cautious to watch this video link as it may stir emotion (ie mascara running). Click on the TODAY show logo link below to view.



If you know a photographer or graphic artist that you believe would like to volunteer with NILMDTS, please have them contact me. If you have a friend or family member that may go through this type of event in the future, please consider suggesting the FREE services of NILMDTS. Please contact me with any questions or comments.

Thank you for letting me share this very important work for families. Say a prayer for these families and squeeze your babies tonight.

Thank you...
