Last week I had the pleasure of The Washington Post running my photos for the Local Living cover story on postpartum depression. Coincidentally, the story came out on the birthday of her first son, the pregnancy from which she suffered postpartum depression.
For the piece I met with Lynne McIntyre and her children at their home. The goal was to snap a photo of the whole family... but it just so happened that Lynne's husband was in Turkey for work. So how do you snap a photo of the family together when one person is thousands of miles away? Technology, of course.
It was a pleasure getting to meet Lynne and learn about her story. I often write and photograph stories, so simply taking things from a photographic standpoint was a refreshing and wonderful exercise. And, for the sake of transparency, I will admit that it still makes my heart skip every time I get to see my name in print for the Post.
Thank you to the wonderful Nicole Crowder for not only giving me a chance to grow, but for pushing the Post to new limits. Thank you to Lynne for letting me in her home and sharing her story with me.
