NICU to ICC | Children’s Hospital Minneapolis NICU Photographer

I meet this little angel just a few weeks ago.  She was born 25 weeks gestation along with her identical twin sister on Saint Patrick’s day this year.  Unfortunately after a long hard fight with sIUGR while pregnant and a hard 49 day fight after being born her sister passed away. But this little beauty is still here working on breathing without oxygen and struggling to finish a bottle. They haved moved out of the NICU and into the ICC (infant care center) so hopefully they are on their way home soon.

NICU to PICU | Minnesota Children’s Hospital NICU Photographer, Minneapolis Minnesota

I’m so excited to share another NICU session from the Minnesota Children’s Hospital.  I know I say this every time but I just love love love meeting these little fighters and photographing them.  I really feel honored to be welcomed into their lives for 30 minutes and then I get to go home and look at their precious little faces for at least a month while I edit them.  The only downside is I’m not allowed to snuggle buggle them.  I think I need one of those baby snugglers job.  I’d be really good at it.

In any event, take a look at this absolutely adorable baby!  This little guy has been in the hospital since he was born in October.  They spent a week in the NICU and he had his first heart surgery at 1 week old.   Soon after they were moved to CVCC.   Poor little peanut struggled to get off of his breathing tube so ended up having to get a trach because of his underdeveloped lungs.  When I visited they were now on the PICU. They have been in there for over 4 months and I’m so blessed to be able to take his pictures since he hadn’t had any yet.  Meet my newest TTFP NICU to PICU baby:
