Sally Melanson says she’s fielding more and more calls from families seeking remembrance photography.
We often think of hiring a photographer for joyous family portraits — everyone together, smiling and having fun.
But there is a growing movement of people who are hiring professional photographers to document life’s heavier moments – cancer diagnoses, still born births, end of life gatherings.
Sally Melanson of Two Little Twigs Photography is one of the only New Brunswick photographers who volunteers for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, an international photography service that offers parents who are grieving a stillborn or infant death free portraits of their children. She’s also photographed local families before and after cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as those facing death.
