Rainbow Baby

” A rainbow baby is a (miracle) baby conceived after the loss of another child.

“Rainbow Babies” are the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and the clouds. Storm clouds may still loom over but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy, and much needed hope.” 

I had not heard of this term before meeting this wonderful woman and mother. After hearing her story and that this was her Rainbow Baby, I wanted to create an image that acknowledged such.

Check back in a little to see more images from her session. 🙂

    With the exception of the photographs of my first born grandson, Colt, who is an Angel Baby and the newborn photos of my second grandson, Ryder, who is our Rainbow Baby, this is the most beautiful photograph I have seen in my entire life. Thank you for sharing the photograph, but most of all, thank you for explaining the term Rainbow Baby to all of those who are unaware of it’s meaning.ReplyCancel
