Artist's Description

This image is of my eldest daughter Leonie who gave birth to two beautiful babies and this series of photographs is a tribute to her bravery and to the memory of my two grandaughters born already in the arms of Jesus. I am doing this as an acknowledgement to their existence not to shock or disgust as i will never be ashamed or embarrassed by them and i want to give a voice to any other mothers, fathers, grandmother, grandfathers, brothers and sisters who have someone in their family who gave birth to a little human being who never knew life. We cried before, during and after each shot as it touched on such a sensitive nerve but it was something extremely dear to my heart and i needed to do it. I thank my dear daughter for allowing me to take these special photographs and in doing so they have a life of their own with their own little personalities. Ladies and gentlemen i would like to introduce my wonderful daughter and her two daughters Emily and Amy.
The little red coat was bought for Emily and the pink shoes for Amy but neither ever wore them, instead my daughter was left with hand and foot prints and two precious flowers taken from their wreaths and pressed as her memories.
In memory of Emily born 8th March 2000 and Amy born 9th June 2005 already in the arms of Jesus.
