The journey to conceive hasn’t been easy for Jessica Mahoney and her husband, Kevin. After having their first son, Corbin, the couple
experienced six miscarriages trying to conceive their second child. But now, Jessica is pregnant again. Hoping to make the experience extra special, Kevin arranged for photographer JoAnn Marrero to create a special “rainbow” shoot for Jessica.
“Six babies lost to have the honor to carry this rainbow baby,” Jessica said of the photo, which has since gone viral. “I hope my story helps someone else to know they are not alone, as the journey of loss and infertility is dark and lonely.”

“A rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean the storm never happened or the family is still not dealing with its aftermath,” a caption for an image from the shoot on the Pebbles and Polka Dots Photography Facebook page reads. “What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds.”
Marrero and her assistant Mary Maloney set a series of colored smoke bombs off, one by one, to create a rainbow effect behind Jessica. “We def used real smoke bombs and double sided grenade ones too!” said Marrero on Facebook. “Some failed ones and trial and error, smoke everywhere! Poor Mary got smoked out setting off those bad boys with incredibly dense smoke!”

But in the end it was totally worth it to get the shot.
“I am excited and honored to share this beautiful moment and cannot wait for this baby to born,” said Marrero.
