The Now I lay me Down to Sleep
organization was created

2
00:00:03,570 --> 00:00:05,920
with one simple mission,

3
00:00:05,920 --> 00:00:09,190
and that was to introduce
remembrance photography

4
00:00:09,360 --> 00:00:11,750
to families suffering
the death of a baby

5
00:00:11,920 --> 00:00:14,730
with the free gift
of professional portraiture

6
00:00:15,080 --> 00:00:18,320
I never wanted a family
to feel they couldn't create the memories

7
00:00:18,320 --> 00:00:22,320
because of cost, for a family
there is no tomorrow

8
00:00:22,730 --> 00:00:24,240
there is only now.

9
00:00:24,870 --> 00:00:28,440
There are no second chances
and there are no retakes.

10
00:00:28,970 --> 00:00:32,850
There is a fine line between
life and death and it's called time.

11
00:00:33,500 --> 00:00:35,990
Some families might have
days with their babies

12
00:00:35,990 --> 00:00:38,160
some only moments.

13
00:00:38,960 --> 00:00:43,170
And then there are those babies
who's only time was spent in the womb.

14
00:00:44,030 --> 00:00:45,520
I wanted to share
my story

15
00:00:45,520 --> 00:00:48,750
and let families know that
it was okay to create this memories

16
00:00:48,750 --> 00:00:50,860
even if their child
has already died.

17
00:00:51,340 --> 00:00:55,000
Together we are changing the way
the world views infant death

18
00:00:55,390 --> 00:00:57,680
Each life, no matter how brief

19
00:00:57,680 --> 00:00:59,630
deserves to be honored.
