RESOLVE to share more on infertility through our stories and photos! Be you and Express Yourself! Sharing photos of your moments, thoughts and creativity! Whether it was about the crazy socks you wore, your toe nails polished, wearing inspirational jewelry or just trying to be sexy while trying to conceive - share it in your photos. I knew that it would be best to open this project up to the virtual world, not leaving anyone out.
Call it an "IFie" aka "Selfie" or "Friendy" Have a friend take your picture or take your own pictures to capture those moments. If Celebrities can make Selfies go viral then why can't we and it's for a good cause. Celebrities, you can join in to help us raise awareness, especially if you walked this journey or are now embarking on this journey! Doctor's get involved share your thoughts through a photo!
Join me for this virtual ART summit - raising awareness through art and photography in the comfort of your own home, or car or doctor's office or park or anywhere you remember your emotions getting the best of you when hearing about a negative test or a positive pregnancy test or just one of those days when a good cry was in order. Take those shots reenact them and share them with me for my virtual art gallery during National Infertility Awareness Week.
Be open with yourself and your emotions. Infertility is difficult! There are many times I left the Doctor's office and laughed at myself to capture the awkward humor so that I didn't cry every moment of the time. I want this project to have a variety of expression and art to raise awareness through photography with real emotions and real faces. If you have experienced infertility, are struggling now or are about to embark on this journey or any other means of family building, join me in raising awareness! I want you to be serious, silly, or just plain crazy -- let it out and grab those moments.
- Send me your photos (up to 4 different poses) (Simple example photo below with text and logo) Be creative!
- A blurb describing your infertility journey or photos. Anyone who experienced infertility no matter the outcome can join. If you built a family through fertility treatments, surrogacy, adoption or egg/sperm donation. This is open to all - let's raise awareness!
- Send me your contact information via email with social media handles if you would like to be tagged on twitter or Facebook along with your website/logo if applicable. You must submit your photos accompanied by all the requested information by no later than April 18th. All photos might not be posted if you send in multiple photos. Photos can be professional or amateur with any branding or sayings added to the photos. If you want to acknowledge the photographer send their information along to me with permission to post their work.
- Lastly, if you submit your photos to this project you are consenting permission to post submitted photos to my website www.secretinfertility.com, my social media outlets, any partners that sign onto the project and press or media partners. If you do not want your name mentioned or tagged on social media please note that when submitting photos.
This project is for a good cause. It will share the stories of those struggling with infertility or for those that have been through treatments. If you are interested in joining this project or have any questions, please email me at Franga27@aol.com. I am open to suggestions. Media Partners and celebrities are welcome. Help us share more on infertility!
Please show the love and share this with anyone that might have an interest in becoming involved in this project.
