Baby E .... what a story that comes from this beautiful session. His Momma and I connected even before we met each other. Stories of sorrow and miracles were shared before we even came face to face and when we finally did, it was like we've known each other for years. I'm the type of person that completely believes fate absolutely exists. Baby E's Momma and I were definitely meant to meet!
Baby E was a little older than most of the newborns I have in the studio..... but he did better than any of us could have hoped for! He slept like a dream for 3 hours while we posed and wrapped .... he could have cared less! He knew his Mom and Dad wanted the beautiful pictures so he cooperated to the fullest!
Baby E has a big brother who is also his guardian angel.... one of the many littles that were too beautiful for earth and watch over us from above. We made sure to include something to honor that beautiful angel in a few of Baby E's photographs as he is still and always will be a big part of the family. Baby E is known as a Rainbow Baby.
"Rainbow Babies" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean that the storm never happened or that we still do not deal daily with the aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.
The photograph ending Baby E's blog is a personal favorite of mine from his session. I'm so lucky to have met this family and I'm grateful they shared their story. It was my pleasure to give them the beautiful newborn photographs they deserved of their sweet rainbow.
