Just as a rainbow glints through the sun and lifts spirits and washes away the gloomy storm, a rainbow baby is a burst of light after the darkness of a miscarriage. Welcome to the world, Lucas; you have no idea how infinitely you are loved!

When Ilana and Andrew reached out to me in the winter and inquired about newborn portraits, they shared that this baby would be their rainbow baby! While I have photographed other rainbow babies, this would be my first time incorporating rainbows within the photo shoot. It was so exciting when their baby boy Lucas was born, and we decided on all the details.

The nursery was decorated in mint green with some gray, so we styled the session with those colors. I love how the green of their clothing picks up the beautiful matching green eyes that Mom and Dad have! Planning colors in advance, and communicating with your newborn photographer clearly, yields a beautiful and cohesive gallery that will match your home and be treasured for years to come.

Every baby is a world of a miracle; and there’s something extraordinary about a rainbow baby! I’m so grateful to Ilana and Andrew for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their joy, and I look forward to watching Lucas grow up!
