Kristen Herber

Photography has been a passion of mine since the age of 16 when I bought my first 35mm camera. I studied photography in college and have also studied under numerous photographers over the years. I love to photograph anything and everything and am always looking for a new challenge.

I enjoy seeing the world through the eye of a lens. Getting to capture different cultures would have to be my favorite part. I hope eventually to get to borrow moments from every area of the world. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my work and I look forward to meeting you!

NILMDTS Charity

{NILMDTS}

Since 2009, Kristen Herber Photography has been supporting the organization “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” (NILMDTS). You too can help this amazing charity! 100% of the proceeds from one 8×10 ordered from each newborn session is donated to this cause. Any addition donation is ALWAYS greatly welcomed and appreciated.

About NILMDTS

Pregnancy and birth are miraculous journeys. This amazing time of life is full of mystery, anticipation, joy, hope, and wonder. Feeling the powerful energy of birth and new life, watching as a new family is born unto each other. These things humble and amaze. These are the things that we celebrate when a baby is born.

But there is another aspect of pregnancy and birth. There is an unexpected place in this journey where some families may find themselves. When a baby dies, a world is turned upside down. There is confusion, sadness, fear, and uncertainty that cannot be explained. There is sorrow where there should have been joy. During this time, it might be impossible for families to know what they might need in order to heal in the future.

This is the place where the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart. For families overcome by grief and pain, the idea of photographing their baby may not immediately occur to them. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives. The NILMDTS mission statement is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the 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 Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) administers a network of more than 7,000 volunteer photographers in the United States and 25 countries. At a family’s request, a NILMDTS Affiliated Photographer will come to your hospital or hospice location and conduct a sensitive and private portrait session. The portraits are then professionally retouched and presented to the families on an archival DVD or CD that can be used to print portraits of their cherished baby.
