rainbow after the storm | westwood newborn photographer

by | Apr 17, 2016 | latest sessions, newborn

As far as the world can tell, Ezra Jack is the fourth child in this beautiful, warm and loving family.  But what is not apparent from appearances alone, is that he is technically the fifth baby in this family.  Ezra is a “rainbow baby” — a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.  Like all the newborns I photograph, he is sweet and adorable and amazing, but

Ezra is even more special because he represents all the joy and hope that is possible after one of life’s very difficult storms.

One thing I can recognize and appreciate, however, is how much strength it must take to have loved and lost, and to have found the courage to love again.  What a mix of emotions it must have been to bring this baby home! newborn and family photographer best of bostonneedham_family_photographer_1173 Ezra’s mom is a long time close friend so I wanted more than anything give to her the gift of beautiful images to remember this precious time.  I wanted to capture her family’s love and long-awaited joy in an intimate, real and beautiful way.
