photo taken by our NILMDTS photographer, Jamie Forsythe
This week's resource is one that was priceless for us because of something we did BEFORE we said goodbye to Charlotte. And honestly, we almost decided against all together. But thankfully we allowed Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) to come in and photograph some of Charlotte's last moments here on Earth (you can see some of those here).
As a non-profit, NILMDTS has created a free service of remembrance photography for parents suffering the loss of a baby through a network of professional photographers all over the country. And while this resource is primarily before loss has taken place, they have resources & services for families after loss as well. This wasn't something we thought about having done in the moment, but today, these photos are some of our prized possession because they are last photos we have of our baby girl.
