I am excited to say this is the month I will be honored to capture the birth of Victoria's rainbow baby. My other birth this month is also a rainbow child. In nature double rainbows are rare. Most of us get so excited when we see this, the most extraordinary feat that nature has created.
In the case of rainbow babies, it means there has been sadness and loss for my families, but that these children are the hope for a baby soon to be realized.
It's funny how the internet can connect people.
Victoria and I met via facebook and began to chat mostly through a babies group when her second and my fourth were babies.
She surprised me by telling me she was my #1 fan and that she knew she wanted me to capture her next birth, this unexpected compliment surprised me & gave me the warm fuzzies.
On difficult days when its hard to juggle home and work, I keep her words and the words of others close and they remind me my work has a purpose and value. I am capturing something so very important for my families...
