I had the most wonderful opportunity to meet with a friend that I’ve only known online over the last several months. Juliet and her husband, Ben, welcomed their first child, a son named Lachlan, last April. He lived for only eight days but was shown a lifetime of love during that short time. Lachlan touched so many hearts, during his life and after, and will never be forgotten.
In the babyloss community, babies born after a loss are often referred to as “rainbow babies”. Last month, Ben and Juliet welcomed their rainbow baby, Ella, into the world. I was SO happy to be able to spend a day with them and photograph Lachlan’s little sister. And can I mention that their Australian accents were delightful!
She is such a serene mother, quietly loving and adoring her baby.
Ella’s Daddy is every bit as loving and tender with her.
She slept so good for me!
I think it’s very evident that Ella will have no shortage of love!
I always love creative crops but this one is just my very favorite. I love all the body language.
Ben and Juliet, thank you so much for welcoming me into your home. I’m honored to call you both friends.
