It was just over a year ago that I received a message from a mother expecting her second child. She explained to me that while this would be her second baby, it was not her second pregnancy. She had miscarried after her first child was born so this was actually a rainbow baby she was carrying. She had waited a long time for this baby and she wanted to make sure to document the “rainbow” part of this pregnancy in the photos. I am always humbled and honored to be a part of such important moments in my clients’ lives and this was no exception. This session was amazing. We definitely clicked and we ended up with a lot of amazing photos but the above image is my favorite from the day.
Shortly after our session, Mom delivered a healthy baby girl and I was lucky enough to go back and take some newborn pics. They moved to another country a few months after she was was born so I have not seen them since but it hit me today that this rainbow baby is about to be a year old. How awesome is that? With all the tough stuff in the news and in life in general these days, it’s so easy to get bogged down with all the bad. I share this image and story not only because of the happy ending but because of what I think the image truly represents and it’s something we all need right now- HOPE ❤️
