What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done so many types of shoots that it is hard to write about just a couple of them. My most meaningful work is the bereavement and remembrance photography I do for parents who have lost or are about to lose their babies. Being able to provide a lasting memory of that child that they will not be able to leave the hospital with is a beautiful gift. During those sessions, I focus on all the beautiful details of their baby. I take away the tubes and wires and hospital equipment. I allow those photos to emphasize the sweet little baby, their little eyelashes, their fingers, their toes. I speak to the parents softly throughout these sessions, offering them comforting words, expressing joy at the little details that make their baby special despite the baby's inability to sustain life. I try to make the worst day of those parents' lives just a little bit better and provide a lasting memory of their experience with me and of that bundle of joy that they will need to lay to rest all too soon.
