A Mid-South photographer is hoping to help a family after what she calls a tough day of shooting pictures.

Ashley Wheeler said she was given the honor of photographing a baby boy as he was dying.

Baby Dylan was born at just 25 weeks on March 15. While doctors at Methodist Germantown did their best work to keep him safe, he could not overcome his health problems. Eventually, he had to be taken off life support.

Wheeler said the family has life insurance, but it does not cover Dylan’s expenses because he was under six months old.

The family has started a GoFundMe to help pay for those expenses. If you would like to donate, click here.
