The Squadrille family is a super special family to me! I haven't known them for that long but they have opened their home, life and family for me to be apart of and I can't be any more happy. I had the honor to be able to do a shoot with this special mama and her beautiful rainbow baby.
For those of you know don't know a "rainbow baby" is a baby born after a miscarriage. There is always a rainbow after the storm and that is true for this gorgeous family who unfortunately had to experience pregnancy loss. Kiya had a miscarriage one year before her due date now, July 29th 2016. Ironic right?!
Through the struggles they had moving on from their loss a year ago they continue to look forward and anxiously await for the arrival of baby Juniper.
Although their 2 year old, Emerson, wanted nothing to do with this photo shoot, Kiya's husband, Mike, jumped right in. They hugged and kissed and got all lovey dovey on me before I captured this moment. Juniper is not just Kiya's rainbow baby, she is also Mike's. How sweet and powerful all at the same time!!!
As I was wrapping things up we decided to joke around about how ill be on my way home and Kiya is going to call me to turn around because she would be in labor (I was also shooting her birth). Well jokes on me, I left her house around 7 that night and got a call around 10;30 because baby Juniper thought it would be cool to have me come back right away. Mama was in labor just 3-4 hours after I was there!
Ummm... Does is look like she's going in to labor in a few hours?! No...No it doesn't.
Gorgeous as always!
Stay tuned for the story of the Squadrille's birthing experience and baby Junipers arrival <3.
