This is my beautiful rainbow baby.

I dreamt about her for years and came so close to giving up. After 2 long years and 6 consecutive miscarriages, my little rainbow baby stuck! She was our last attempt at growing our family.

When we became pregnant, we didn’t have much hope. We made it to 8 weeks and got to hear her sweet little heartbeat, but I couldn’t let myself get attached. 9, 10, and 11 weeks passed and she was still growing inside me. I told myself that if we made it to xx weeks, I’ll stop worrying. But week after week, I’d panic that I lost my little babe. Pregnancy was hard. In hindsight, I probably should have seen a therapist to help manage my anxiety about losing my baby.

We kept her gender a surprise. I had waited 2 long years to carry this baby earthside, so I told myself that I could wait until birth to find out what we were having. I so badly wanted a little girl. Giving birth, hearing my baby cry and my husband shot joyfully, “It’s a girl!” was hands down one of the best days of my life. Not only did I get the baby I wanted so badly, but it was also a girl!

I was beyond ecstatic to photograph her newborn session! I chose a mixture of my favorite colors- rust, mustard, and neutrals. Then I incorporated a few different rainbow props.
