This panel of pregnancy and newborn images developed when my
daughter, who suffers from bi-polar disorder, became pregnant whilst
still studying at college.
Seeing the distress and upset that my daughter went through and
listening more closely to my customer's experiences made me think
about my pregnancy photography in a different way!
I wanted to put together a panel of images which represented the true
feelings of these women who have lost babies, gone through the pain of
IVF and couples who have used a donor or surrogate. For many couples
pregnancy has not been an easy path.
Using the various props helped me tell their story, making the overall
appearance of the panel to be dark and contrasty, and by adding a warm
tone I could bring out the love and softness, which is also present.
This panel has taken me over two years to complete and has been a
roller coaster of emotions along the way, developing considerably as my
I hope you all enjoy this panel as much I have putting it together.
