Rainbow babies are joy after sorrow, happiness after heartbreak, and life after loss. They are truly the rainbow after the storm, and they deserve to be celebrated. What better way to capture that feeling of love than through rainbow baby photos!
A rainbow baby is a child born after miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death. For many parents of rainbow babies, having a rainbow-themed newborn photo is a symbol of hope and reflection. It can be a way to look forward and celebrate their new baby while honoring their past loss. It’s incredible to see so many photographers working to create beautiful rainbow baby photos that capture the emotion and symbolism of the moment.
Today we’re sharing 18 inspiring rainbow baby photos to make your heart happy and inspire your next newborn photo session.
“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.” — Amy Mulford, Little Love Photography
“I chose the rainbow skirt for this mom-to-be because I wanted to show off her beautiful full belly just weeks away from welcoming her rainbow son.” — Paige McLeod, Glean + Co
