NICU Twins ~ Maple Grove, Minnesota NICU Photographer

These two cutie’s are the surviving twins from a brief triplet pregnancy.  Mom was hospitalized three times for preterm labor, she finally made it home for bed rest but by 34 weeks and 2 days they could no longer stop labor.  Big brother was born first weighing 4 lbs 6 ounces and 18.5 inches.  Little sister was 5 lbs and 17.5 inches.  Brother was in respiratory distress.  At the time of their session, sister was continuing on oxygen and Cpap but had been moved off the respirator , monitory tube feedings etc.  Brother was moved to room air and was monitored for enlarged kidney, tube feeding etc.    It’s always my pleasure photographing these families.
