This little big guy was born with a complex Congenital Heart Defect that was diagnosed at 20 weeks gestation. Scheduled for at least 3 surgeries in his first few months of life he has shown his family that even the best laid plans can change at a moments notice. Weighing more than 9 pounds he stands out against the majority of his peers in the NICU but his battle is just as big and it was my honor to capture this family’s sweet little hero’s brave story.
