I had a stillborn son named Ethan. It was about 10 years before I really started to heal.
Through the sadness and difficulty that my own experience brought, I was driven to help Ethan's spirit live on by helping others to begin healing themselves. In 2016, I started working towards making this personal project a reality.
Together: Bringing Loss to Light is a book that will be filled with stories and photos of mothers that have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. My goal is to help them heal by photographing them and telling their stories. Through a questionnaire, I learn about their experience in order to better photograph them and convey their story.
Through these stories, I hope that others who may have also had this experience may be comforted, and to shed light on such a silent topic so that others might understand. It's a topic that for so long has been kept in the dark and I want people to know that it is ok to talk about it. It is ok to grieve your child openly.
As my vision progressed and some behind the scenes work began, I brought on a videographer to document each session. He is an amazing videographer and, as a father of angel babies, is just as deeply affected by this project as I am.
