Entry Title: "Lost"
Category and Expertise: Photography, Professional
"With each loss of 11 babies, I kept mementos. They are all kept pristinely stored in a white box in my closet, as are the memories of their short lives kept pristinely stored in my heart."

My new series "Lost" is based on my personal experience. It has been ten years since my last loss. I have never shared these mementoes with anyone as they are private and personal and go to the core of my emotions both heartwarming and heart wrenching simultaneously. I have read the assertion that meaningful art occurs when you share yourself and create from the depths of your soul. So I share. Creating this series has both served to honor these precious lives, as well as bring a voice to my personal plight. I am hopeful that in sharing these images I will touch the lives of numerous women who have experienced or are in the midst of experiencing the painful loss of a baby. They are not alone in their journey.
I created my Lost images in a humble and pristine fashion in direct correlation to their short and pure lives.
