"I was nervous to join NILMDTS. I wasn't sure I could handle the emotional part of capturing a session. I'm glad I was encouraged to give it a try though. I was surprised by how strong I am. It is still hard, but I can handle it. And, I know there is support from NILMDTS if I need to talk with someone." 

~ Jenn Cheesebrow, NILMDTS Volunteer since 2018

"Seeing the appreciation in a parents eyes at the end of a session is all I need for me to continue giving the gift of remembrance portraits. It has filled a place in my heart that I didn’t know was empty."
