Alyssa & Devin - IVF Success Story

"I am so happy the other treatments didn't work out, because otherwise we would not have been blessed with the twins."

This is the amazing revelation that Alyssa and Devin's mum, Sharona, shared with me when I talked to her about her IVF journey.

And just have a look at what bundles of joy these two are.

Sharona talked about the importance of talking to people, of having a support system in place - don't try and struggle through it alone, because you definitely are not alone.

She also stressed keeping faith and believing that it will happen when it does.

I started on this personal photography project specifically because two of my friends brought IVF and struggles with infertility to my attention. And I realised how many people in my life, close friends, people I only met once or twice, struggled with infertility.


And every day I would find someone on social media asking for just a little hope - just one person's success story.

I wanted to help. Through my own struggles with depression, I know how important it is to know you are not alone in your journey, whatever that may be. And what a difference it can make knowing there is always hope.

I focus my photography on finding the magic in every day, and I hope that you find a little magic, and hope, in these photos of Alyssa and Devin, two of the most beautiful, energetic twins I ever met, and just one of many IVF success stories.
