Oliver entered the world on June 11th, 2017 and stole out heart. Back it up a couple months to when I created our Rainbow Baby Package. I created this package because of all the people in my life that have suffered loss and had their Rainbow baby. Within hours of posting it, Lindsay contacted me about booking that package.
We met Lindsay and Jason for the first time (after much chatting online) at the Halifax Public Gardens for their maternity session. We hit it off right away, they were the nicest couple that after many years of longing for a baby and suffering loss were finally having their Rainbow Baby.
After he was born, Lindsay messaged me to announce his arrival and arrange his Fresh 48 Session. I couldn’t wait to meet Oliver, he was absolutely perfect. Seeing the love and bonding moments between mommy, daddy and Oliver just melted my heart. When you long for a baby for so long and fight so hard to have one that it gives you deeper appreciation when the Doctor places your baby in your arms for the very first time.
Once Oliver was born, that’s when it started. We started to capture him throughout his first year. We did Newborn, Family, Christmas, Easter, Sitter Session then his first birthday. We got to capture so much of his first year, watch him grow, learn new things, and of course played & snuggled with him any chance we had. We ended up becoming great friends with Lindsay and Jason. Lindsay has been there for me as I am on the journey to try and become a mother. I couldn’t have a better person to be brutally honest on how tests are really going to be, but cheering me on because in the end…. you have a baby. My husband James and I love Oliver and love how we get to capture him as he grows up to be such a great little boy!
Here is a look through our lens at Oliver’s first year:
My husband and I love spending our time photographing newborns, we love being part of fresh 48 sessions capturing those first moments with your baby. Whether it is your first child or 6th child, all those first moments are precious. Within the last few months I’ve been hearing more about people have rainbow babies, I looked up what exactly that meant. A rainbow baby is a baby who is welcomed into a family after there has been a loss experienced due to miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth. I’ve know many people including family that have suffered miscarriages which brought me to create our “Rainbow Baby Package”. It is close to my heart and absolutely fills my heart with joy to capture those moments with your newborn rainbow baby.
I met Lindsay and her husband Jason a couple weeks ago. Lindsay booked the package the same day I advertised it. She told me her story, we started bonding through messages leading up to her maternity session. The excitement she had for her upcoming session was amazing, she told me she couldn’t believe she just booked her maternity session. They are expecting their baby boy June 17th and I can’t wait. I have two upcoming sessions with them, a fresh 48 and newborn session. I honestly can’t wait to meet their baby boy! I’m anxiously awaiting for the text to tell me he has arrived.
Our Rainbow Baby Package includes the following:
Newborn Session (within the first 10 days is best) First Birthday/Cake Smash Session Each session will be up to 2 hours Special Rainbow Birth Announcement Full resolution photos available in an online gallery
