Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Once again, I haven't had time to do much personal photo editing, I've been putting my time to better use....  Two weeks ago I was approved as a volunteer DRA (Digital Retouch Artist) for the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep organization.  NILMDTS is a group of volunteer photographers who give their time taking memorial photos of angel babies whose lives were cut short due to preterm labor, complications, or any variety of reason.  Many times the babies are severely damaged due to life saving measures and their little bodies are so fragile; so I have been spending my time repairing the damage so families can have beautiful photos of their little angels.  I have also attained a paying job retouching newborn photos for a group of photographers.  I encourage you, if you have time to visit NILMDTS and see if you can help with either your talents or with a contribution.  I first learned about this organization when they touched the life of my brother and sister-in-law.  One of the photos taken hangs in their bedroom today.

  4. I have never heard of NILMDTS. That's pretty amazing that you are doing that for families. What a blessing that must be but I'm sure it's an emotional job. I will definitely visit their site.

    Your edit is great and the crop really did the picture justice. Great job!

  11. NILMDTS is a wonderful organization. I've considered submitting my portfolio for review, but I don't know if I could emotionally handle it. I don't think I could make it through a birth without breaking down. I hold those photographers that are able in high esteem.

    Adorable photo, the crop is great.
