Behind the Scenes Body Art with Expecting Sunshine

At the end of November the crew of Expecting Sunshine did a creative shoot where we filmed visual analogies for baby loss. Artist Perry Medina painted my stomach three times, with three different gestational ages of a baby in utero. After each time, we represented the loss of a child at that stage. They will be powerful representations within the documentary.
