the infertility journey is such an incredible emotional rollercoaster. it feels isolating. it feels unfair. it feels like mother nature and your body are betraying you..
I have always wanted to be a mom. I've known this since I was little. I feel like I was put on this earth to raise and nurture children. unfortunately, the process of starting a family with my husband hasn't played out like they teach you in school it would. my husband and I have been diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" (feel free to read more about our journey here), and are currently in the process of using medical intervention to try to get pregnant.
the infertility journey is such an incredible emotional rollercoaster. it feels isolating. it feels unfair. it feels like mother nature and your body are betraying you. it is expensive. it is painful. it is full of fear.
there's a community within the infertility world. there's a level of comprehension, from one person to the next, of the complete emotional, physical, and financial toll it takes to create another human life.
my photography is fueled by storytelling. I'm telling our story because I want others to know that they are not alone. I want to break the taboo of infertility, where people feel they have to go through this silently. this journey that my husband and I are on is our story. it is the story of how we will, someday, become parents. it will be our future child's story.
and I want to tell yours.
if you have overcome infertility, or know someone who has, I would be honored to tell your story. you fought so, SO hard for that baby. let's celebrate together!
