I’m not sure how long the term “rainbow baby” has been around, but for those unfamiliar…. just as a rainbow appears after a storm, a “rainbow baby” is the loving term for a baby born after a miscarriage or infant loss. Unfortunately, this sweet family endured such a loss the year before. This brand new baby- whose gender was left as a surprise!- was certainly a rainbow for them. A dear friend- the amazing birth photographer April Kraus (aprilkrausphotography.com)- referred them to me for their classic newborn portraits. April photographed sweet Aurora’s birth, and then I captured the family in my studio- we were two lucky girls to be a part of her arrival this way! There were a lot of people waiting excitedly to see her… Not the least of which being her parents and big sisters! 🙂 This session took place at our previous home, and looking back on it brings me all the warm fuzzies. I loved all of the families I worked with there, and this family was no exception. It was a honor to make these portraits for this sweet Momma. What a gracious and kind person she- and her whole family- are!
Enjoy this celebration of “Rainbow Baby” Aurora’s arrival!
