Lisa Smiley Photography is participating in the Charity Model Search to select America’s Cutest Kid and to raise funds for the non-profit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation. (NILMDTS.org)
This is an foundation that is very near and dear to my heart. Our family lost our first son, Joshua, just 15 minutes after he was born. NILMDTS did not exist at the time, but we did capture his moments with us on film to memorialize and treasure the time we were able to spend with him. Those images are priceless to us now and I would not have changed it for the world.
NILMDTS does this for families today. Through remembrance photography that is free of charge to the grieving families, professional photographers capture those moments in time and give the families heirlooms to cherish, to remember, to embrace. I cannot tell you enough how much this benefits grieving families and how much it helps in the healing process. It is such a blessing. This is a charity I support with my whole heart. I hope you will, too.
To raise funds for this amazing organization and to cover it’s cost to send out professional photographer free of charge to the families, we are having this “Cutest Kid” event. So, is your child America’s Cutest Kid? We’ll give you the opportunity to prove it!
The prizewinners will receive a generous savings bond and gift cards!

The love this family shares is so evident and beautiful. I am happy it shows in the images, and it is just a treasure to see in person. Thanks for sharing your heart, Mrs. A, we love it!

Just at the right moment. In the nick of time.
This session was meant to be and I'm so glad it was! The weather was touch and go and we wanted to go! I was determined to get this gorgeous family in on this special day and I was so happy that we got it to work. There was a little rain, it was a bit cold, but all in all, this special anniversary edition photo shoot went off perfectly.
