Capturing Grief

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, with the 15th specifically set aside for special events. In light of this, Carly Marie is organizing a month long photograph challenge. She has a list of ideas for each day but this is just a guide.

I plan to participate and invite any of you who would like to do this to join me as well. You don't have to take a picture each day. And while you are welcome to share your pictures*, you can also keep them private. The idea is to help us reflect on our grief, help bring some healing as well as raise awareness for pregnancy loss & infant death.

*if you'd like to share your pictures via twitter or instagram, use the hashtag #captureyourgrief

"The reality is that we don't forget, move on, and have closure, but rather we honor, we remember, and incorporate our deceased children and siblings into our lives in a new way. In fact, keeping memories of your loved one alive in your mind and heart is an important part of your healing journey."

  1. This looks so wonderful I really want to do it also!

  2. I will be glad to see your photos Jenn. If you so choose to share them. I made an album on my Facebook specifically for this challenge, and am also posting them on my blog. I think Carly Marie has come up with an idea that will touch many lives in the babyloss community.


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
