Rainbow Baby Project
What is a ‘Rainbow Baby’?
Rainbow babies are those born to couples who have experienced a previous loss due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.
It is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t 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 clouds.
I am really proud to announce a project that is very dear to my heart! Having gone through 2 miscarriages myself, I have been through the loss and grief that it brings and the worry of going through a rainbow pregnancy. I have taken beautiful images of rainbow babies for lots of families over the years and have seen the joy on the parents faces to see the photographs I create for them and I want to do more. I have decided to offer free ‘Rainbow Baby’ newborn sessions to deserving families expecting a rainbow baby.
One newborn session will be gifted per month to eligible families. These sessions will take place within 2 weeks of the birth at my studio located in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. Please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, the earlier the better! Please also allow a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your due date to be considered. The chosen family will be notified at the beginning of the month from the previous months nominations.
I will accept nominations/applications from friends and family members.
The ‘Rainbow Baby’ Newborn package includes:
- 1 hour newborn session at my studio
- Newborn images, Parent shots and a family shot too for you to choose from.
- 5 fully edited digital images
- £50 towards a Sitter Session or Cake Smash to carry on the celebrations of your baby’s special milestones.
Extra digitals, wall art or keepsake products can be purchased after viewing the images but is not compulsory
