Years ago a mama contacted me and she mentioned that she was having a “rainbow baby”, having never heard of a “rainbow baby” before I did some research and discovered what a rainbow baby is and it just broke my heart. She shared with me her devastating story of the baby that she lost and we celebrated the arrival of her second child – that was my very first rainbow baby session. Since then so many parents have reached out to me to share with me the story of the baby or babies they have lost and the arrival of the baby that will soon be healing their hearts. I am honored to be able to capture this miracle for these parents that have gone through so very, very much.
Meet Baby Willow…such an adorable, tiny babe and a rainbow baby long awaited by her mama and daddy. They were absolutely over the moon in the love with this little one but her big brother was very much on their minds and in their hearts at her newborn session. Her mama loves the color purple (it’s one of my favorites too!) so we did her session in shades of plum, dark raspberry and glorious purple. The baby in the rainbow butterfly was specially requested by the parents as a sign of life renewed and all the colors of the rainbow are represented in the flower wings.
If you are thinking about scheduling a newborn photo session contact me and lets chat! Newborn sessions are best when baby is 5 to 10 days old, so booking your session early is very important. Reserving your spot before your baby is born is ideal (anytime during your second trimester is great!). A magical photo session for your baby is just a phone call or an email away! I look forward to hearing from you!
