October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. As many of you know, this is near and dear to my heart, as we have experienced multiple losses.
I have been (and will continue to be throughout October) honored to spend time with fellow loss mamas, capturing their stories and love for their babies. Some of these stories will be shared with video, some text, some simply photographs. I welcome you to join in remembering our babies and bringing awareness and normalcy to talking about these short but precious lives.
Cortni heard about my project through Rachel (who’s story is here). Rachel and Cortni met after discovering their babies had the same diagnosis and have built a beautiful and supportive friendship through their shared experiences. They did their sessions at the same time and we stood around talking for over an hour after we were done shooting and that gave me such a renewed sense of purpose in this project. It reminded me of the vast community of women (and men too!) that you just instantly feel close to because you are all a part of this undesirable “club”.
