Since I first picked up a camera, children have been my inspiration. To me they represent everything that is good in the world, and each and every one of them has the basic right to be protected, nurtured and loved.
This amazing project saw me travel around the world photographing brave survivors. As a photographer and mother, it was incredibly moving to meet these young people and see firsthand the impact that meningococcal disease has had on their lives.
Protect. Nurture. Love. That has been my mantra for the past 30 years of my career as a photographer. I believe that all moms change lives -- and together, we have the ability to change the world for the better -- one newborn at a time.
