This little guy was born early on the evening of September 5th. His mother was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and at 28 weeks and 4 days needed to deliver due to the deterioration in her own health. Pregnant with twins; unfortunately his sister did not make it and had passed away in the womb about a month prior. Born at 1 lb 15 oz this cutie continues to be in the NICU. He has underwent one surgical procedure on his little stomach and the family is unsure of what else will be in store for their little guy. I was so honored to give this family some photographs that can show their love for their beautiful little boy. This family is a wonderful example of why I love doing what I do. They have faith and a belief that he will grow and thrive into a healthy little boy. There are not always happy endings in the NICU but there is so much hope that lives there and it warms my heart every time I go and photograph a new little fighter. I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing this.
