Alex Bolen has been photographing people, places and things for over five years in the Winfield, Missouri area.
Alex shoots all kinds of sessions, but one of her most recent photoshoots is going viral for an incredibly touching reason.
Heather, Hillary, Kailia, Sara, Ashley and Hannah are mothers with a touching story to tell, each one different yet connected by their rainbow babies.
A rainbow baby is a baby born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. More women are speaking out on social media with stories about their own rainbow babies, thus helping other families find hope and faith in the future after suffering such a devastating loss.
“These mommas are just 6 out of the millions that experience pregnancy/infant loss every day,” Alex wrote on Facebook about her shoot with the mothers. “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.”
Within three daysof posting the photo of all six moms gathered together, each one in a different color of the rainbow, the powerful image went viral across the world. “I could not have done it without these 6 incredible ladies,” Alex writes.
