Alex Bolen of Shutter Darling Photography gathered six women who were pregnant or had recently given birth after losing a baby. This stunning image is the result.

Alex writes: ‘A rainbow baby is a baby born following loss. These mommas are just 6 out of the millions that experience pregnancy/infant loss every day. Some speak out. Some stay silent. Some have lost many. Some try for months or years. Some meet their sleeping angels. All loved and never forgotten.

A rainbow is a promise

of sunshine after rain

of calm after storms

of joy after sadness

of peace after pain

of love after loss.’
