We have information linked to our website at: https://www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org/find-photographers/
When you access this page, our standard guidelines appear – once you have reviewed these, click “Continue” at the bottom of the screen. Then enter your zip code or postal code and a list of photographers in your area will generate. The ones listed in red are the Area Coordinators and/or Dispatchers. Please call them first.
Please note that all of our photographers are volunteers. Many have full-time jobs and other commitments, so they might not be able to answer your call or get back to you right away. The hours our photographers take calls are from 7:00 am – 10:00 pm in your time zone.
We encourage you to take your own pictures! Even if a photographer is available. You can never have enough photographs of your baby even if you don't look at them now or even in a year. You will never have to regret not taking more. We encourage you to take your time with your baby, bathe your baby if allowed, do footprints and handprints if available, dress your baby and have alone time with your baby without guests as well.
If a photographer is not available, you CAN still get beautiful images of your baby as well as a free photo album! Be sure to use the best quality camera or phone available. To assist you with this, a posing guide can be found on the following landing page under Retouching Requests:
Follow the instructions on that page, including filling out and submitting the retouching consent form, which can be found on the following landing page under Retouching Requests at the very bottom.
