Spotlight on Kirsten Leah Bitzer | The Image, Deconstructed

I initially approached a close friend’s cousin who was beginning her second round of IVF after the first failed. I pitched her the idea of following her and her husband as they underwent IVF for a second time. She thought about it for a week or so, and replied that the emotions and stress were already so much to handle, and that if the second round failed she didn’t want documentation of it. And I totally understood, but that really made me wonder if I’d ever find a couple open to the idea and willing to become so vulnerable.
