Rainbow Babies

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.

A Rainbow Baby represents a rainbow that when it appears does not mean the storm is over or that the family is not still dealing with it’s aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. The beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm.

Charlee Photography is gifting the community a monthly Rainbow Baby session. This not only gives local families a beautiful keepsake but also allows the opportunity to initiate discussion of what is a very sensitive but important topic of infant loss.

Charlee Photography is able to offer one Rainbow Baby Gift Session per month to eligible families.

Please note: these sessions are to be held within two weeks of birth so allow a minimum of 8 weeks advance notice of your due date to be considered.
