Oscar…Brisbane Newborn Photographer

Rainbows appear after mighty storms…

When things look their very worst…

Just when the skies are darkest grey…

Look for the rainbow first.

The rainbow’s a sign of a promise…

Guiding you through any storm…

Seeing you through all your troubles…

No matter the shape or the form.

When you feel battered by life’s storms…

and your filled with doubt and dismay…

Remember a rainbow is coming…

To brighten up everyone’s day. Newborn baby boy sleeping on brown blanket with knit rainbow wrap layer wearing rust coloured knit romper

 

Oh my heavens I had the most special family in today…what a journey they’ve been through just to get to this point. Mumma first messaged me very early on and very nervous that her little man would arrive safe and sound when the time came and I am so excited to say that day is finally here. This little pudding was 100% adorbs today and it was so nice to have them all in the studio. I’ll let Mumma share her story and I’ll share some cute pics along the way but eeeeep…all kinds of lovely.

After conceiving my first born, Owen, naturally and having him at 31 weeks in 2014, we then struggled with unexplained infertility until 2020 when I conceived our little Princess via IVF in January. Unfortunately I ruptured prematurely at 18 weeks. Ella Jane’s fight ended at 20 weeks and after 6 years of not conceiving and thousands of dollars spent on the one round of IVF, we walked out of the hospital with empty hands and hearts. I was then diagnosed with an Incompetent Cervix and scheduled an abdominal suture to be placed 3 months after the loss. To our complete surprise, I called my husband at work 2.5 weeks after the operation to say I was pregnant naturally! With close supervision and care this pregnancy, our rainbow baby, Oscar, entered the world on May 13 at 37 weeks – we had a term baby!

World…Meet Oscar…he’s new here.x. Newborn baby boy sleeping on tan furGosh he was such a gorgeous little man with a dusting of ginger (sorry Dad, blonde hair!), pouty lips and squishy cheeks. The best!

Newborn baby boy sleeping wrapped in brown wrap being held by 6 year old sibling brother on cream fur with teddy bearEeeeeep how sweet are these three together? Not the sibling picture Mumma and Papa hoped and dreamed for but still their three babes together. Owen was super nervous about holding his baby but we got to chatting and before he knew it, there he was just doing it like I knew he could! And sweet Ella’s memory bear that got lots of snuggles.

I just know she had a hand in sending him and keeping him safe to be delivered earthside.

Owen…thank you for being the best big brother to both Ella and now Oscar, and for ultimately bringing your Mumma and Papa to me through the NICU all those years back.

Oscar, you are all kinds of special and definitely the rainbow your family needed.x.
