“The storm doesn't diminish a rainbow's beauty, it enhances it.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo
Immediately following a rainstorm, the best reward is when a rainbow appears in the sky. Feelings of tranquility and awe often are felt by those who gaze upon it; The calm after the storm. Maybe that’s why the rainbow has become a symbol used by many so different groups and organizations. Meet my beautiful client Brittney. She is a Youtuber and an Infertility warrior. Upon our initial consultation, we were able to connect on so many levels when discussing her journey.
Last week she and her husband received their rainbow baby! For those not familiar with the term, a rainbow baby is a healthy baby born after losing a baby due to miscarriage, infant loss, stillbirth, or neonatal death. The story about how they brought this blessing into fruition included a very taxing in-vitro- fertilization process. It definitely speaks volumes to their strength and tenacity as a couple. What better way to celebrate than with a maternity photoshoot! OF COURSE, NO PRESSURE AT ALL!!!
I wanted to make sure that the session represented Brittney and her bubbly personality. Bright colors and airy feels was the theme throughout her maternity looks. I also wanted to ensure their energy was captured in their couple shots.
Sometimes amid the storm it may be difficult to see the rainbow in the distance. But if you keep on persevering, you’ll see it in its full beauty!
Man, I love my career! Why? Because I love getting to know my clients and their backgrounds. Every story is different and every mom is different but the joy that comes from capturing a woman's journey to motherhood is special. Having portraits that will last a lifetime and for many more generations to come…completely priceless!
Blessing to this beautiful family on their new addition! You can hear more details on their story by checking out her Youtube Channel, Blog, and Instagram!
