As all rainbow babies are, Derek was a very special little boy. I remember his mother confiding in me, emotionally expressing her heartbreaking story of losses and eventual joy of her baby boy. Big brother was so excited to be a part of the session and his tenderness and love show in all their family photos. Because Derek is a rainbow baby, meaning something wonderful and beautiful that happens after sorrow and hardship (the rainbow after the storm), we wanted to incorporate that beautiful meaning into his session. Every session is special, but capturing something that can soothe a mother’s heart is what my work is all about.
