Grow with me| Jacki G. Photography| Newborn & Family Photography| Richmond, VA

A.. is ONE yr old!! ! The last time I saw this little guy was for his newborn session, and look how he's grown! He still has that same precious smile. He was a little shy at first but soon opened up and gave me some great smiles.

The weather was just perfect on Libby hill for his ONE year session. We had to reschedule the shoot a few times due to rain so it was a pleasant surprise that the weather cooperated.

National Rainbow Baby Day| Richmond, VA| Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

Happy National Rainbow Baby Day! If you're not familiar with the term, a "rainbow baby" is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or the passing away of an infant. These babies signify hope and healing after a loss and for many parents, these babies are "the rainbow after the storm"

I haven't shared the story of my stillbirth publicly but it was a devastating and deeply profound loss. When I found out I was pregnant again I was absolutely terrified but my little Noah arrived safe and sound and has changed my life in the most incredible ways. I will never forget ^Gavin^ my baby that came before him but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful , beaming rainbow of light.

There is still a lot of stigma around miscarriage and stillbirth so I believe it's important that we share our stories in hopes of showing other parents who are grieving that they are not alone and that there is hope. Sending love and light to all of you Mamas and Daddies out there still waiting for their own rainbow baby to arrive. but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful beaming rainbow of light.

I have attached a few examples of the rainbow babies I have photographed.

This handsome little fella took a couple minutes to warm up to the cake smashing, but once he figured out it was fun he definitely gave us some great smiles!  I have been photographing this guy from birth so I know that once he smiles they are camera worthy and oh so adorable!
