Maternity photography sessions have become an emerging and popular trend for expected mothers. For many of us, our moms did not have a maternity shoot. It is often a regret that many mothers wish they would have done. Maternity shoots are great for capturing memories, you can be creative, it is a chance to bond with your partner, and it is a wonderful reminder of your strength with carrying your baby/babies. It is a beautiful way to celebrate your pregnancy.
We are excited to share Kelli and Terrence Webb’s maternity session. During Kelli’s first pregnancy, she sadly lost her baby. Years later she was triply blessed to become pregnant with three rainbow babies. Rainbow babies are those born to couples who have experienced a previous loss. Rainbows are a symbol of light and beauty after a storm. Kelli looked radiant and gorgeous carrying her three daughters in her African-inspired shoot. We invite you to continue reading about the Webb family’s miracle story, as well as viewing the gallery below.

What was it like when you found out you were having triplets? It was surreal. I literally thought it was a joke. We learned very early on that we were having twins. We did IVF, but because of my health and age, the doctor recommended transferring only one embryo, which we did. We were not surprised to learn that the embryo split because we knew there was a slight chance -not to mention that multiples run in my family. My dad is a twin, his younger sister has three sets of twins and one of her daughters has a set of triplets. Moreover, several of my first cousins also have twins! However, during our appointment, we were told that they saw a shadow of something that looked like another sack. I said, “Is that even possible?” They said yes, but very unlikely. They told me to put that out of my head – “You’re having twins Mrs. Webb”. It is very unlikely that there is another baby.” When my husband and I walked to the car, he said adamantly “It’s another baby. I just feel it.” I said, “No it’s not, they said it’s probably nothing.” He said, “Well what is it then?” I replied, “An angel or the Holy Spirit watching over the babies, but it’s NOT another baby!” We shared a laugh and moved beyond that. At our next appointment, our Nurse Practitioner said, “Yes, I was right. There is a third heartbeat.” And here we are, parenting three beautiful, healthy baby girls!
