12. I just looked at the website and see nothing wrong with it
So many times an infant passes, and the parents are all wrapped up in the moment, I doubt whether they even think to take a picture of their child. Even if it is stillborn, it lived in the mother's womb and there is great grief for the parents to lose a baby in this way (I know because my best friend's first child had the umbilical cord wrap around his neck and died 3 days before birth, so he was dead when she had an induced labor).

I looked at the pictures on the website and think it is a very brave and noble photographer that could take such pictures. I thought many of the photos were quite touching (a few were maudlin). Just my .02 for this evening. -48%er
