Pregnant Woman Takes Maternity Photos, Believes Husband Was There With Her

One woman got devastating news when she was just 18 weeks pregnant. Her husband was killed on a business trip in another state.

A drunk driver rammed into him and killed him. The mom-to-be had no alternative but to go on alone for the sake of the children.

When she got some pictures taken, though, she realized she might not be alone at all.

Kelly Luethe was texting with her husband one night while he was away on business. They were talking about going to find out the sex of the baby they were expecting the next week.

Jarret stopped responding, and the pregnant mother of two thought he had just gone to bed.

At 2 a.m., she got a knock on the door from police. They had devastating news - Jarrett was dead. he was hit by a drunk driver.

Instead of going with her husband to find out the sex of their third baby, she was going to his funeral. After the funeral, Kelly found out she was having a baby boy.

She decided to name him Jarrett Jr. Despite the hard time she was having, she decided to do a maternity photo shoot.

“I want to include him in anyway I can for our family and especially Jarrett Jr., since he will never get to have his dad around,” she said.

Kelly asked her friend, Jessica Brandau, to take the photos. She and her other two children went to a pretty field and they started posing.

Some poses were of Kelly alone, some were with her other two children. Kelly couldn't help but think of Jarrett as they walked around the field looking for different backgrounds.

Brandau snapped away, but mentioned to Kelly that the camera was picking up some unusual flairs. When they got a closer look, Kelly began crying.

Rainbows were spread out across Kelly's belly, or pointing to the belly. Some unusual rainbow orbs surrounded her at times.

No matter where they shot, or what angle they used, the strange rainbow flares appeared in every photo.

“I had been longing for a sign from Jarrett since the accident," she said.

"I was really struggling with my faith because of it. I feel Jarrett knew I needed this."

Even more stunning is the story behind the rainbow. Kelly is pregnant with a 'rainbow baby'.

Rainbow babies are babies that come after a couple suffers a miscarriage. The new baby is the rainbow that appears after the storm, and many parents who have suffered a loss might let others know by wearing rainbow symbols.

This sign seemed to show not only that Jarrett was with the family, but that this new baby was going to be okay. It was a sign that brought Kelly great comfort and relief.

"I know that some will chalk it up to lens flare and light refraction, but in the time that I have been photographing professionally I have never had it show up as prominently — and in every single photo — the way that it did in Kelly's photos," said the photographer. "I do fully believe that Jarrett was giving Kelly and his babies a sign that he is still with them."
