I adore in home lifestyle newborn sessions, but there is something so special about photographing a newborn in the NICU. These little babies are born fighting and I’m always so honored to capture this time for the family.
People often ask me if I had NICU babies and if that’s why I love to do these sessions. I didn’t. I was lucky that all three of my babies were born healthy and at full term, but as a mama, my heart breaks for these parents. I know that I don’t like to spend a minute away from my babies. I can’t imaging what their pain is like having to leave them in the hospital each night. But one day, these little babies will be back home and this time will be a distant memory. I know their mamas will look back at this time and see not only how strong their baby was, but also how strong they were.
