Volunteer photographer of baby remembrance charity shares her poignant story 

 Published on: 12th October 2018   |   By: Court Reporter   |   Category: Uncategorized

Remember My Baby is a UK based charity that offers the gift of baby remembrance photography to all UK parents experiencing the loss of a baby. 

MyHemelNews spoke to Sally Masson who has been a local volunteer photographer for this charity for the past three and a half years.

She said: “I have covered 16 sessions since my time at Remember My Baby for families who have suffered a loss and each time the experience is different.”

Although this type of work is definitely not for everyone, Sally explains why she joined up: “I feel that these parents deserve to have photos of their little ones just like any other parent with their new-born. These images are the only memories that the family will have, and I want to be able to give them a high quality and beautiful set of pictures that they can cherish for a lifetime.”

Parents who use this service are presented with a set of black and white images on a USB drive which is presented in either a pink or blue bag up to six weeks after the photographs are taken. The service is completely free.

Remember My Baby are currently recruiting professional photographers and NHS Trusts now and aim to be able to offer the service of baby remembrance photography to all parents who are suffering the loss of a baby in every hospital and birth centre across the UK. 

Sally told us: “Our photographers often travel miles so that a bereaved family will be able to have these precious memories. I myself have covered sessions in London based hospitals where they do not have sufficient volunteers.”
