Photographer Lindsay Natzitz-Villaroto is used to photographing happy events in people's lives, but this case was different. When Richard and Emily Staley's daughter was stillborn, they wanted to honor her memory and recognize the baby as a member of their family.

Emily's pregnancy passed without any problems. But when the expectant mother, alarmed by the lack of movements of the child, turned to the doctors, she was told the terrible news — the umbilical cord wrapped around the child's neck and strangled him. The next morning, by Caesarean section, the woman gave birth to a dead daughter, who was named Monroe Vera.
