4 days until we induce to meet our son
In February my cousin lost his 8 week old son Koen to SIDS. Shortly thereafter I was contacted by a photographer, Elle Zober, who had seen a bulletin I had put on Myspace.
In addition to the amazing photography she does for weddings and children and such she works for the amazing organization of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.com. They are a foundation who has photographers around the country associated with them who do bereavement photos for parents who have or are losing their infant. Elle had emailed me to offer this amazing free service to my cousin.
We ended up becoming friends and continuing our relationship. I never had any idea I would need her photography other than just for the fun of it. She eagerly voulunteered to do our photos for Jonathan as soon as she found out about him. She also offered to do a belly session for our family.
We had our photo session on Wednesday and Elle called today to tell my the slide show is up.
NILMDTS is such an amazing organization of photographers and people. And I feel truly blessed to know Elle and to have been touched by her amazing photos.
