I have someone’s story to share. This last week I was away for some photoshoots and my very last client asked me to share (anonymously) her story of hope. She did dance back in college and asked for an artistic shoot to help her capture her emotions. She has had 2 miscarriages in 5 years… the second of which almost killed her. She told me about how hard it was going through the loss and then feeling like she lost track and control of her body. Her dance was pushed to the side as she grew more ashamed of her figure and more than that… felt like her body just was letting her down. When she lost her second child, the loss was so deep and the pregnancy was so far along that it almost killed her too. She didn’t want to fight for herself after losing another child. Then… years later, she’s come to a beautiful realization and wanted to share it with all the other mothers with angels in heaven. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “The loss I went through… I realized that I wasn’t alone. There are other angel mommys that are hurting just like me. I decided that I was done mourning. It was time to work on myself, mend my heart and get back to my passions. Maybe even let my passions and experience help others. This is going to be my first time dancing again… and I wanted it to be photographed. I’ve been dreaming of a routine that shows my loss, my hurt and ultimately… my hope. My body has changed, and it’s taken time, but I’m proud of the way I look. It’s the way it is because of the experiences I’ve been through and it shows my struggle and now I believe it shows my strength. My curves are beautiful to me because they remind me that I have two little angels in heaven who need me to live life to the fullest.” •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
She danced. I cried and she wept with her movements. This shot to me… Shows it all. Loss, change, hope and acceptance. Let’s show this ✨Angels Mommy✨ our support and love. Help me share her story so that her experience can give hope to others! ••• Now… Excuse me while I go and get some more tissues.
