Image Dreams Studios is more than a local business, we are part of the larger community of professional photographers in the US. This is a caring group, often using our artistic talents to help others. One organization of professional photographers to which I belong is Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS).
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the free gift of professional portraiture. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring their child’s legacy.
The Charity Model Search for America's Cutest Kid is the annual (and only) fundraiser held by NILMDTS. Big Bend/Muskego based Image Dreams Studios is participating this year. Portraits must be taken between 1/1/2012 and 3/15/2012 - giving us 6 weeks from now to capture your child's "cutest image". So, is your child (newborn through 18 years) America’s Cutest Kid? We’ll give you the opportunity to prove it! The prize winners will receive a generous savings bond and gift cards!
The 2011 Charity Model Search raised over $44,000. Proceeds help NILMDTS continue its mission to serve families in need. We anticipate even more participation in 2012 than in previous years.
