Inspired by International Bereaved Mother’s Day (coming up on Sunday, May 6), this year I will be offering complimentary spring mini sessions for bereaved mothers. Whether you’ve lost a baby due to miscarriage or stillbirth or a child when they were older, this event is for you. I strongly believe in the power of art to heal and it is my hope that these portraits will help you find a moment of peace in your grieving or provide you with a beautiful and intimate moment to always remember your child.
Together we will customize a simple mini session in remembrance of your child. You could lovingly hold their picture, an ultrasound photo, one of their favorite toys, a white rose, a white balloon, etc. We’ll chat about your memories and your child to determine what would be best for the portrait. These portraits will be less about looking at the camera and more about documenting the love between a mother and her child. You may bring along a friend or spouse for support but portraits will be of mom only.
In order to serve as many mamas as possible, sessions will be held back-to-back at an outdoor location within 20 minutes of the Downers Grove/Naperville area. Final location will be determined as the date nears in order to take full advantage of seasonal blooms & greenery.
