There is a local family who have grim reports on having a live birth this coming week. The baby has had very low amniotic fluid throughout the pregnancy and there is just no way to know what to expect.
While reading her journal she mentioned that the volunteer photographer (through the organization named above) will be there to capture the delivery and photographs of the baby for the family.
I think this is beautiful and, when the families are ready to view them, will cherish those pictures, find closure with them, and forever be grateful to the photographer for doing so.
We have had several reports of tragic situations on the boards lately and I just thought I would share this. Perhaps a moderator will make it a sticky for new comers to see and know is possible in that unfortunate situation.
There is a lot of information there, not just about photography but also about donating wedding dresses that others volunteer to alter into burial gowns for infants, and other ways to contribute in this most worthy and heartbreaking world of infant death.
There are links from that site to others, and you can search for photographers who participate in the program by state.
