Kian, below, is the son of my friends Jenny and Riaan. A much loved and long awaited little boy.

Not all parents are blessed with little girls and boys, and some parents lose a child at birth.

I am a member of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NiLMDTS) and our mission is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the free gift of professional portraiture. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honouring their child’s legacy.

At a family’s request, an affiliated NiLMDTS volunteer photographer will come to the hospital or hospice location and conduct a sensitive portrait session. Parents are provided with a free CD of sensitively retouched images that can be used to print portraits of their cherished baby at their cost.
