A Family’s Journey Through IVF | A Custom Family Film

Matus Family | Our Family Journey Through IVF – Pittsburgh, PA

My journey as a film maker has been filled with amazing stories from birth and newborns to the beauty in the every day as well as the priceless keepsakes of my own family. My heart has been full. My most recent project has by and far been the most emotional to date and one that puts some things into perspective.

A Story of Hope

Kayleigh approached me in the fall with their story and I was moved to tears before I finished her message. She wanted me to help document their IVF journey as they tried for baby #2. Her family had struggled for years with infertility and somehow defied the odds with their unimaginably low fertilization rates. My heart broke for them and I was completely invested in their story and honored to help them share it.

This film documents their journey to start and complete their family. The footage is raw and it is emotional, entangling the highs and lows along the way. Although faced with so much heartache, they remained optimistic, were unwavering in their faith, and never gave up hope. And after all this, it seems a new chapter begins…

In sharing this film, it is our hope that it will inspire others on their own journey. If you would like to help share this story, please use the Facebook link on the lower left under this post.
