Rejoice with those who rejoice. Mourn with those who mourn. ~Romans 12:15

We are thankful to have the opportunity to give back to the community in many forms. This is just a small way of saying thank you, or supporting those who are hurting. If any of the following apply to you, please email us for a no cost session.  These sessions have limited availability, please email as early as possible to secure your date.

Now Lay Me Down to Sleep

We are proud to be Affiliated Photographers for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. Since 2005, NILMDTS has provided no cost Remembrance Portraits to families experiencing the death of a baby.

From NILMDTS:

NILMDTS offers the gift of healing, hope and honor to parents experiencing the death of a baby through the overwhelming power of remembrance portraits. Professional-level photographers volunteer their time to conduct an intimate portrait session, capturing the only moments parents spend with their babies. Parents are gifted with delicately retouched heirloom black and white portraits free of charge.

These priceless images serve as an important step in the healing recovery for bereaved families. NILMDTS remembrance photography validates the existence and presence of these precious babies by honoring their legacy.

NILMDTS recruits, trains, and mobilizes professional quality photographers around the world.  Through NILMDTS, medical personnel are given a meaningful option to offer bereaved parents by creating remembrance portraiture for their babies.

Through further engagement in the organization, such as the NILMDTS Remembrance Walk and online support, families become a part of a compassionate and supportive community.  Parents gain a sense of inclusiveness, alleviating the alienation and perception of being alone in their pregnancy or infant loss journey.

Military

We will provide a no cost portrait session to any deploying service member, or a homecoming session.  These sessions include digital files and print release. We will also cover any military funeral in the greater Knoxville area free of charge.

Adoption

Within thirty days of finalization we will provide a no cost portrait session to any family expanding via adoption, including digital files and print release. We also provide courtroom finalization coverage at no charge, in counties that allow courtroom photography. If you opt for courtroom coverage instead of a session, we will also provide family portraits at the time of finalization.

Critical Illness

We will provide a no cost portrait session to the family of any child (under 18, please contact us regarding availability to adult critical illness sessions) facing a critical illness. This session can be on location, in home, or in hospital depending on health limitations. These sessions include digital files and a print release.
