I was so excited when this momma contacted me about doing a cake smash for her rainbow baby. A rainbow baby is a baby born to a mother who has previously lost a child due to miscarriage, still birth or neonatal death. It stems from the idea that a rainbow, symbolising hope and comfort, follows the storm of grief caused by a baby loss. My oldest is our rainbow baby so I have a special place in my heart for any family who has gone through this type of loss. The Sturm’s had only be on Guam for a few months, and it was the perfect time to celebrate such a wonderful event. This sweet baby was so easy going. She didn’t mind the sand or the mess from the birthday cake. She even let her big sister help her eat it. If I had to guess I think dad was more excited about the cake than anyone, well, except for mom. You could tell mom put a lot of time and attention into every detail of this session. We spoke weekly about expectations and the overall feel fro the session. I am so happy mom and dad love these photos just as much as I do.
