I was honored to be able to photograph this little boy. He was a rainbow baby. A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. … A rainbow baby brings light but by no means replaces the angel baby. I did this session for one of my husband’s coworker and friends of ours who were trying for years to get pregnant, only to get pregnant and lose the baby. That’s a heartbreaking tale so many people in this world have the misfortune of dealing with. What is amazing, is the love that these parents have for their new little (well not so little – he was 10lbs at birth) man helps to ease the pain, and the love has multiplied by all of the members in the house. So much love in this house. I love seeing how happy they are to have completed their family! Mom is now outnumbered! I think the dog is even a boy!
Here are some images from baby Lincoln’s Session!
