Rainbow Babies

Rainbow Baby NewbornRainbow Baby NewbornRainbow Baby Theme Photo Session

One of the greatest things I got to experience is photographing a rainbow baby. Many don't know what this is, in fact I never did either until I became more involved with my photography. Here is a description of what a Rainbow Baby is- "A rainbow baby is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison". 

I think this memorable photo session is important to the mom and I was honored to perform it. I think anything that gives one peace or gives someone the memory of an event or a past experience, is something someone should always consider having done.  I struggled at first to try to come up with an idea, I had to search Pinterest and other photographers pages. I was so nervous and wanted it to be perfect for the mom. I think I did that very thing for her as you can see by the photo.  I hope looking back on this in years to come she can also remember that beautiful life she had for a moment in time. Although we dont know GODS reasons today, we will one day. I also hope to do another one of these, but only so I can provide a parent a comforting and healing memory and for them to experience the joy of the new life before them. IF this is you reading this, and you have experienced such a horrible loss but yet received a blessing following that loss, I would be honored to photograph your newborn for you in the same way.
