Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep
The Chattanooga chapter of a national organization called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep includes a dedicated group of professional photographers who donate their service to a very special cause at Children’s Hospital. All of the photographers volunteer their time to come to the hospital and conduct a sensitive portrait session for parents who are suffering from the loss of a baby. The photographs are professionally taken and given to the family via email in hopes that the images will serve as an important step in the family's healing process.
