As a Navarre newborn photographer I am so blessed to be able to photograph sessions like this Rainbow baby session. Every part of these photos had a meaning and a deep connection with this loving family. I am so thankful to be part of these incredible moments. Sweet Baby C. is a rainbow baby, and I love to include a rainbow wardrobe like mom’s gown and props in rainbow colors. I can’t wait to show off more of this sweet baby session with so many rainbow setups for the cutest baby in town.
A baby born a short time after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth or death in infancy is called a rainbow baby. This term is given to these special rainbow babies, because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving hope of what is to come.
This beautiful family approached me early on. The mom was so excited to book the session with me. We sat down together and planned every little detail of this newborn session, and I was able to buy a beautiful rainbow gown for Mama to use for this meaningful rainbow part of the session.
After the family part of the newborn session I typically pull out some simple props. My favorite one is this sweet nest. Babies snuggle right into it. Mommy brought a baby blanket which meant a lot to them to use during this session. We spent a few minutes on these rainbow baby pictures, and then went on with newborn family photos.
Here are a few without any rainbow props, but more of these in a different post at a different time.
