I had another opportunity over the weekend to do a shoot for NILMDTS. It was very difficult. This one was an 8-month-old baby who died unexpectedly. It was difficult to witness what that family was going through. At the children's hospital here, the parents receive a memory box when a child dies. One thing included in it is a pocket angel. It is about the size of a quarter and it comes with a card that says something about how the parents can now carry this angel in their pocket to remind them of their little angel. The social worker at the hospital suggested to the mom that she might want to have a picture of the pocket angel in the baby's hand. That is my post today.
Editing these shots, as well as the ones from Wednesday night, has been very difficult. I find I have to take breaks here and there. It is difficult to do in long stretches. I'm spending a lot of time on each shot. I want them to be as perfect as possible for these families.
Again, I just have to say I feel privleged to be in the presence of these angels.
