"There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

I am a member of an organization called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, which provides bereavement photography for babies born still or who are not expected to live. It was founded by Cheryl Haggard, a mother who lost her new son, and Sandy Puc', the photographer whom the Haggards called to photograph their family before their sweet baby passed away. This non-profit organization provides families with photographs of their precious baby.
From the NILMDTS site:
"The Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation is there for parents and families to help aid them in their healing, bring hope to their future, and honor to their child. It is through remembrance that a family can truly begin to heal."

I haven't seen the segment yet, but I'm still amazed at the strength it must take to do one of these sessions; both the family and the photographer.
