Rainbow Baby Sessions

A little about my rainbow sessions


 

A rainbow baby is a name coined for a healthy baby born after losing a baby due to miscarriage, infant loss, stillbirth, or neonatal death. The name “rainbow baby” comes from the idea of a rainbow appearing in the sky after a storm, or after a dark and turbulent time. Two of my 5 children are rainbow babies.  The first was born after a miscarriage and the second was after a molar pregnancy.  When I ever talked about my losses, I was amazed at how many other women experienced losses as well.  I was shocked that 10-20% of all known pregnancies end in a miscarriage.  That is 1 in 4…

I love it when I see those that have experienced prior losses now supporting those who are in the midst of their own pain.  I know when I talked about my losses and subsequent pregnancies, it not only eased the minds of the families I was sharing, but it was also healing for me.  When you lose a baby, so many thought run through your mind but the foremost for me was “what if I can never have a baby”.  Rainbow babies are a celebration of the life after the loss and are symbols of hope.  When you see proof that there can be light after the storm, it is very comforting.  It is my passion to give back to those that have suffered these losses and are willing to share their stories to bring this community of 1 in 4 together to support each other.

If you are expecting a rainbow baby, you can apply to my After The Storm Program.  Each month I will offer one free mini rainbow baby session for those that are willing to share their rainbow journey with my followers.  Your session fee will be waived and you will receive 5 High Resolution digital files from your session.  You are welcome to purchase additional images, but you are in no way obligated to.
