Last year we had the great honour of meeting a beautiful family who received our “Rainbow Baby” gift session for the month of December.
Ava’s big brother Zane was here for just 166 days before he was tragically taken by SIDS in December 2014.
Instead of a rainbow concept, we wanted to create a special image to signify the 166 days Zane was here with his family. Each day is represented by the 166 fresh flowers surrounding Ava in the shell.
It was such an honour to capture these images for this special family.
“Rainbow Baby” gift session information is listed on the tab on my website.
One Year Less
There is no word, no label, no identifying moniker,
I am not a widow, not an orphan, not childless,
But one child less.
One less open laugh and little boy giggle,
One less challenging tete-a-tete;
One less artful, winking manipulation,
One less word of comfort, one less grateful hug.
One less chance to embrace a daughter;
One less new life to carry your eyes, your chin, your grin, your name,
No one word for the pain, the longing, the brevity
Of a life meant for living; an old soul meant to grow older than mine;
Would there be any one price too high, any sacrifice too great,
For one more moment, one more breath, one more warm touch;
I grasp desperately and sense the closeness –
the ONE just at the fingertips of my heart and mind,
Only to realize again and again and again,
There is no “One” – you are gone and I am – less.
