Lily's UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital Fort Collins Fresh 48 Photo Session

Lily was welcomed by her older brother Henry, mom Amy and father Derek on December 13th, 2017. This sweet little girl is a rainbow baby! What is a rainbow baby you might ask?

A baby born subsequent to a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of

an infant from natural causes. She is an extra bright ray of sunshine in this family.

I was so happy to include the special rainbow blanket that Amy had bought for her Fresh 48 session.

Derek held her so gently. As if she was a flower petal that would bruise.

Henry kept wanting to see what I was doing while I was doing some close up pictures of Lily. He smashed his face against the base-net at the same time I aimed up. He made me smile the whole time.

I am weird and I love umbilical cord stumps
