A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or death in infancy. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

But a rainbow baby does not mean that your loss should be forgotten; they will always be a part of you and never far from your mind. Rather, your rainbow baby will carry the light and love you will always have for the little one you lost.

This project is my way of telling these stories and celebrating the babies that we have lost as well as the ones that have come after. These photographs and stories will be made into a beautiful book with the proceeds from the sale of the book being donated to charity.

If you are pregnant with a Rainbow Baby and would be interested in a session with me following the birth of your baby then please complete the form below to apply. The session will be held in my home studio in Moonee Ponds in the first 4-14 days of life and as a gift for your time and story you will receive an 8×10 matted print to say thank you. The opportunity to purchase more images after your session will also be available. Please note that after your session you will also be asked to share your story or a few words to accompany your image for the book.
