Rejoice with those who rejoice. Mourn with those who mourn.

Now Lay Me Down to Sleep

Jess serves as a nationwide Volunteer Coordinator, the Knoxville Area Coordinator, a volunteer photographer, and a Digital Retouch Artist for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep


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.


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.


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.
