I'm feeling a little drained tonight. I got a call from one of the other Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep photographers in my area. She was not able to take an assignment from one of the hosptials, so she called to see if I could do it. It turns out they needed a photographer for three stillborn babies -- all from different families. I took the assignment and did fine during the sessions, but now I'm feeling quite overwhelmed by the whole experience. Each situation was different, but all were so tragic. I am feeling so sad for all of those families tonight. I witnessed such grief and sadness today and so much of a sense of dreams shattered.
My picture today is just of a white flower. To me, it symbolizes simplicity and purity -- just like those tiny little angels I photographed today.
