Tara’s Rainbow Maternity Session

After Every Storm There Is a Rainbow of Hope…to say that Wes and Tara had to walk through a storm is a bit of an understatement, but they have weathered it all for many, many years and now have their sweet Rainbow Baby on the way.

I remember years ago seeing a silhouette image similar to this one and sending it to Tara saying we should do something like this one day to capture all of your beautiful children. She said sure, but we never got around to making it. Again, this was quite a long time ago, and honestly I had forgotten about the idea, so when we were planning her maternity session and Tara mentioned it, I knew we had to make it happen. I knew there had been several miscarriages. I knew approximately when a few of them were, but when I asked Tara how many silhouettes I need to find, and she responded with “seven” – my heart sank. I knew there was one before Faith. I knew there were some before they ending up finding their way to Abby and Brody, and I knew there were a couple before this pregnancy, but I had never put that altogether in my mind. Looking at this image… looking at the reality and loss that they went through so many times, I cried. I messaged Tara and told her how incredibly strong I thought she was.

That’s what I see in this image. I see the strength of two parents and the amazing love they have for their children. ALL of their children.

I know God has a plan for all of us. I know without that plan, and some of this loss, we probably wouldn’t have Abbyella and Brody in our lives. Which I will be forever grateful for, but I am also very grateful that God decided to give Wes and Tara this sweet Rainbow Baby. Just look at all that love that this baby is going to be surrounded by.
