Note: I posted this yesterday, but didn't have the images to go with it, which further add to the story and help in understanding how your images can help the healing process of families caught in the tragedy of losing a child. My apologies for those of you seeing it a second time.
Each life, no matter how brief, deserves to be honored."
I'll start this guest post right off by saying I need your help...I'd love to get every professional photographer in this industry (Yeah, that's my wish list - it's a pretty lofty goal) to watch this video. But you might be surprised at the range of reasons why...
In terms of my own passion and understanding of NILMDTS, I'm one of several Ambassadors and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this amazing team. I've gone from originally thinking the idea of photographing a baby who's about to die as morbid, to understanding the importance of, as Cheryl puts it in the video, capturing love. Without question, it's the most powerful emotional challenge a photographer can go through, but as each NILMDTS artist has shared here on the SCU site, being involved has created an incredible journey of growth, perception and understanding, helping make each one of them better people and artists.
