Missouri-based photographer Alex Bolen gathered together 6 women for a poignantly beautiful photo shoot

It take a lot of courage to muster up hope after you lose your child after a miscarriage, which is what makes the concept of the “rainbow baby” so beautiful. Photographer Alex Bolen of Shutter Darling Photography perfectly captured the poignant joy that comes with having a rainbow baby in a beautiful photo shoot.

To create the photo, Bolen had six women dress in color-coordinated gowns pose in front of rainbow-colored smoke bombs. The resulting image was breathtaking.
