Project Summary:

I would like to offer families stricken with terminal newborns a free photography service to capture the small time they have with their baby.

This will be an in-hospital shoot that will show another side of the newborns so parents have additional photographs to remember their children.

I also hope to teach, and recruit other photographers to volunteer in this program so more families can be reached.


Families will recieve a personal photoshoot in the hospital or home if possible
- A photo CD complete with un-marked images for printing and sharing
- Compassion and understanding of the grieving process through photographs.
