Being pregnant

11 beautiful rainbow baby photos

Underwater

When photographer Ann Norment was contacted by Kathryn for an underwater maternity session, she was thrilled. Kathryn and her partner Zachary had lost their twins 10 weeks into the pregnancy, so she knew she had to create something special. The result is the perfect mermaid-esque rainbow baby photo.

Rain drops keep falling on my head

Another great idea is to make raindrops to represent your rainbow. Afterall, rainbow babies are the calm after the storm.
