This is Jade & Shaquille.
This is their 2nd maternity session with me. I was asked to do their wedding but sadly had to decline being I was already booked for what ended up being one of the MUGGIEST, HOTTEST wedding days I have EVER shot. Their day went on BEAUTIFULLY without me of course. Actually looking what feels like WAY back I did Jade’s senior session when I first picked up the camera. She had me in awe way back when I was in my 20’s. Now I am half way through my 30’s and I am still in awe of her natural beauty.
Jade wanted to add the rainbow belt to her session to signify the importance of her rainbow baby. Some of you may not know, A rainbow baby is a child born to a couple who has previously lost a child.
That rainbow belt brought goosebumps to me. It also brought tears. I was reminiscing about our first maternity session and how I felt leaving that. Here this couple was embracing the fact they just found out they were having a baby girl, and trying to grasp the fact they will more then likely have her early. Too early. December 5th 2018 Sweet Baby Rome was born. They had one blessed day with their beautiful little baby.
Now here they are, counting down the days until Rome becomes a big sister. A heavenly angel to walk the path of life with her brother.
Jade is GLOWING. Shaquille looks at her in awe & with so much compassion. My heart is overflowing with joy for them. And although I have nothing to compare notes with or know even remotely what they are feeling, I know they have been in my prayers since November 16th, 2018 when her mom reached out to me. I know they are going to be some kick a** parents. I know that precious baby boy is SO LOVED.
