October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Though people who have lost a child need no reminders of what they are missing - I have found that it is nice to have a specific time for people to reflect, connect, and mourn.
Carly Marie is an amazing photographer that has helped many people in their journeys to healing from losing a baby or a child. You can see more about her awesome work here.
She is heading up a 31 day photo challenge during the month of October. I have never partcipated in anything like this before, but I really do love the idea of taking a little time each day to reflect, connect, and mourn for my lost little ones. As Wren's due date gets closer and closer I have been on a roller coaster of emotions and I love being able to channel some of the energy and thoughts into a project. So here we go. Excuse the quality of pics - I am far from a professional photograher,just a mom who wants to work through some emotions and feelings.
Day One - Sunrise
I actually found out about the project after sunrise on day 1 and it was cloudy in Knoxville, so I went out behind my office and snapped a picture of the flowers and trees. I will probably try to get a different sunrise another day :) But this is my official start.
