Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is a national, 501(c)(3) not for profit voluntary organization dedicated to providing parents and families, that are suffering an early infant loss, with the gift of portraiture and DVD recordings.

Funding from individuals and corporations has enabled NILMDTS to provide parents and families with heirloom memories of their baby. When birth and death do coincide, this is the only opportunity to substantiate the importance of this baby’s life. We also strive to bring awareness and public education to the healing effects of bereavement photography.

All monies donated to NILMDTS goes directly into supporting this organization and the maintenance of our web sites. Please know that other than the 5-person headquarters staff, not one single person is paid for their time or services. The Photographers that are affiliated with NILMDTS share their talents with the families through the generosity of their hearts. They receive no compensation from NILMDTS, nor from the families with whom they share their gifts.

Cliff Lawson is an Affiliate Photographer, Area Coordinator, Certified Trainer, and member of the Board of Directors for this organization.
