Rainbow Babies

Have you heard of the term “rainbow baby”? A rainbow baby is a little newborn who is welcomed to a family after a miscarriage, stillbirth or prior premature birth. The term “rainbow baby” is given to these special babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving hope of what’s to come. It doesn’t negate that the storm was never there, it doesn’t mean that the loss has never happened but it’s a celebration of something beautiful after enduring a period of darkness.

Recently, I met a mommy-to-be who told me about her heartbreaking story and the difficulties a loss of a child brings with it – the emptiness, the darkness, and the silence…

For a while, I have been looking into ways to give back to the community and this topic struck something in me that I wanted to pursue.  I believe that the sessions not only will be cherished by the families for years to come but I also hope that it may help start conversation about the sensitive topic of infant loss.

My plan is to give away one session a month for a year to someone who had to endure such difficult times. If you like to be considered, please write me an email with your story.

Here are some rules: 

  • Contact me at least 7 weeks in advance of the due date stated on the ultrasound.
  • You can nominate a family or apply yourself. 
  • There will only be one session per month to one eligible family
  • Sibling shots will not be offered during the shoot. This is solely for the rainbow baby and parents. 
  • There will be rainbow styled pictures and other pictures at my only personal styling discretion. I will not be able to accommodate specific requests. 
  • You need to be willing to sign a contract and model release.
  • You will receive a gallery of 8 digital pictures.

I am looking forward to capturing something special for you!
