Rainbow Babies

_DSC7024cropA ‘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 is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm.
When a rainbow appears it does not mean 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.

Luisa Dunn Photography has a strong ethos towards volunteer charity work and celebrating the miracle of new life.  Luisa is pleased to follow on from her time with Heartfelt photography charity to now ‘give back’ to families of Rainbow Babies.  Not only does the Rainbow Baby session give a cherished gift to families that are very deserving it allows the opportunity to initiate discussion of what is a very sensitive but important topic of infant loss.

Luisa Dunn 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 your baby’s birth date.

To be considered, you must register your interest within 8 weeks of your due date.  The earlier the better!  We will do our best to accommodate requests where possible.

Families of Rainbow Baby Gift Sessions receive:
* 2-3 hours photography session
* Full professional retouching of your images
* A beautiful collection of 10 images digitally via a private password protected downloadable gallery
