Steps for Samuel PAIL awareness event | Bowling Green, KY Maternity and Birth Photographer
As many of you know, I am an Area Coordinator and affiliate photographer for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, a volunteer organization that offers remembrance photography to families suffering the loss of an infant. On October 13th, 2016 I was honored to photograph, attend, help sponsor and speak at our local Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness event, Steps for Samuel, coordinated by Julie McCoy in honor and remembrance of her son Samuel and all babies gone too soon. . Julie is a certified grief recovery specialist and owner of McCoy Counseling Center, here in Bowling Green, KY. This event occurs locally, in October of each year and includes a remembrance walk or virtual walk, a candle lighting ceremony and the dedication of a tree in one of our local parks. This year marks the events 4th year. October is designated as Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month each year. For more information about any of these events or services, please visit the website links in this blog post or reach out to me for more information. It is truly an honor to be involved with such amazing organizations that offer service and support to our parents here locally.
