A “Rainbow Baby” is a baby who is welcomed into a family after there has been a loss experienced due to miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth. A Rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm.
When a rainbow appears it does not mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with it’s aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds.
Aside from being a photographer and a hospice nurse, I am also a volunteer photographer for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS), a non-profit organization operating worldwide by volunteer photographers who provide free professional portraits to families suffering a stillbirth or early infant loss. I also volunteer with One Moment photographing their annual Walk for Hope event in Glenwood Springs, CO (www.one-moment.org)
Not only does the Rainbow Baby gift session give a cherished gift to families that are very deserving it allows the opportunity to initiate discussion of what is a very sensitive but important topic of infant loss.
Simply Blessings Photography is able to offer one Rainbow Baby Gift Session per month to eligible families. *please note: these sessions are to be held within two weeks of birth. Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of due date to be considered, the earlier the better.
