Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

The Problem

Jana and her husband Gabe were excited to learn she was pregnant for the second time. Their son Barrett would be a big brother. During a routine doctor’s appointment, Jana found out her unborn child had a chromosomal abnormality known as Trisomy 18. Just 3 days shy of her scheduled full term induction, their baby girl's heart beat for the last time. Their daughter Mae was born still into this world.

The Solution

This week we are partnering with Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS), an organization that connects parents who have recently suffered the loss of a newborn to volunteer photographers who are deployed immediately to take professional photos, providing memories that will last forever. With your support, we will provide peace and comfort to families while helping them to always remember their child.

About The Charity

NILMDTS trains, educates, and mobilizes professional quality photographers to provide beautiful heirloom portraits to families facing the untimely death of an infant. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring the child’s legacy.

Who has a Keurig? This girl!


Did I tell you we got a Keurig? I love it, I had picked up some Starbucks k-cups including this blend. Yummy stuff right there. Of course I need like a huge box of them since I went through this in like 3 days. I drink a lot of coffee. I know.

GAYFACE: 1st CLASS

From the artist:

As a queer woman and an artist, I want to give the LGBTQ Community a platform to express their voice's and their truths. I want to show the many faces of this community, the diversity and the strength it takes to be who they are each day. In 2011 I started GAYFACE as a personal project but by 2012 the project started to gain recognition which moved me emotionally to pursue a dream of giving back to the community. 

Through these photographs I'm capturing personalities and in that split second of the shutter clicking, I feel one with the subjects. I hope that these photographs bring awareness, a human connection and invoke emotion.

This project celebrates the color, vibrance and diversity of a community that for decades as been in the dark. 

GAYFACE 1st Class.
I love the idea of this project and it would mean so much to me if you could stop by and check it out.
