Wow guys! It's only been a week and I've already filled all the sessions I was able to donate to the Rainbow Baby Model Call. I actually received so many applications that I was able to donate 1-3 Rainbow Mini Newborn Portrait Sessions per month from now through January 2019!! I wish I could have donated sessions to everyone that applied, but unfortunately there's only so much of my time to go around, especially since I'm a mama to three precious children myself. It's been a hard week reading all of the heartache that you mamas have been going through. I am so overwhelmed by all of your pain! I am a very sensitive person so I have been crying a lot as I read story after story this week. This is a warning to you now--those that received complimentary sessions, I may cry during your session too!! Be on the lookout in the coming months as most of the recipients agreed to share their story on my blog.
I hope you will feel my love and support for you as well. I am here for you and I'm so grateful that I can donate my time to at least some of you that have had such a hard experience in a very meaningful way.
As it is still Infant and Pregnancy Awareness month I also want to take a moment to express my sympathy for those mamas that are still hoping for their rainbow baby. I will pray for you that you may find comfort and healing after the loss that you have experienced. And I hope that you may be blessed with a rainbow baby soon! You have my love!
We thought of You Today
We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow too
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it every day
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away
I hope that we can continue this session donation to mamas in need so please if you know of someone that will be welcoming their rainbow baby after January 2019, please send them this post or have them fill out an application here.
"Rainbow baby is the term for a baby after the loss of a previous child. It is the understanding that a rainbow's beauty does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean that the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds." -unknown
To commemorate Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month in October I am donating a free newborn mini session along with 10 complimentary digital images to ***3*** families in need that are expecting a baby now (either pregnant now or very recently given birth). "Families in need" could refer to financial hardship or to a particularly painful loss/multiple losses that has caused extreme emotional distress. Ideally the portrait session will take place when the baby is between birth up to 14 days old, but I can be flexible under the right circumstances.
Please fill out your application here.
Please nominate your friends if you know someone who is expecting a baby soon and has previously experienced a loss (miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss).
Note: I may do this in coming months depending on the response but it will likely be only one family per month in the future. ❤️
This blog will feature new parent advice, what to expect when working with my business, as well as an ongoing series about safety when interacting with newborns
