The Tasmanian Rainbow Baby Project

What does the term Rainbow Baby mean?

A “Rainbow Baby”  is a baby born to a family after the loss of an angel baby due to either miscarriage, stillbirth or premature death.

My Story

In 2003 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl Amber who sadly passed away at 20 days old. Later the following year I gave birth to my rainbow baby. He will tell you himself that the reason he came along was to make us smile again.

I’m honoured to have the opportunity to give back to families who are expecting a rainbow baby through my passion of capturing newborns and give them a wonderful gift that will be cherished.

Peta Nikel Photography is offering one Rainbow Baby Gift Session per month to eligible families.
