Rainbow Baby Project

Little Things with Great Love

“A rainbow baby is a baby who is welcomed into a family after they have experienced a loss due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.”


One newborn session will be gifted per month to an eligible family. Nominate yourself or a deserving mom & dad by using the link on the Ashley Jo Photography website. These sessions will take place at my home studio in Belle Plaine, MN.

Newborn sessions take place within 2 weeks after baby’s arrival (whenever possible), so please fill out the nomination form below ASAP. We will pencil the due date onto the calendar. 

Each session will include 5 complimentary digital downloads with the option to purchase professionally printed products or additional files if desired. However, no purchases are required to qualify for the Rainbow Baby Project Giveaway.   


Make A Donation

Many have asked how they can help out if they don’t have anyone to nominate.  By making a donation you will help to purchase rainbow baby themed props to be used during sessions. It is my goal to make each session as unique and as special as the baby being photographed.

You can also venmo any dollar amount to @Ashley-AJ-Simons and please just note that it is for the Rainbow Baby Project

How to Donate

What Inspired This Project?

This special project was placed on my heart by the Lord in the fall of 2017. He is creator of all things and has woven together the tapestry of this project. Revealing to me each step over this past year. I choose to use my talents as a photographer to bring glory to His name even in the darkest moments.

 1 in 4 women suffer a miscarriage or infant loss. When looking among the women around me I was overwhelmed by the large number of women in my circle who are 1 in 4, some of them repeatedly. I applaud them all for showing the strength, bravery, and vulnerability to share their stories with me over the years. To all of my 20+ friends who have shared their stories of love and loss, I continue to pray for you and may the lives of your angel babies be honored, their memories forever shared, and their names always spoken out loud.
