Faithe {newborn}

This little girl is truly a miracle - born at 24 weeks, 4 days and just under 2 pounds.  She was born December 1st, 2012 and was discharged from the NICU just under a week before Easter.  She has done so well since birth - although there were definitely some very scary times in the beginning and some bumps along the way, but so far things are looking quite good for her.  Her mommy and daddy have enjoyed having her home for the past couple weeks.  She still is on a small amount of oxygen so during the shoot we would take it off and then put it back on after the shots.  They hope that soon she will be off of the oxygen and they can hold her without any tubes connected to her.  She has more than quadrupled her weight and was 9 pounds the day I did her shoot!

This newborn shoot was unique because she is actually 4 months old so I approached it as a "lifestyle session," using their home, her nursery and doing less of the typical "posed" newborn shots (as she is not as sleepy or flexible as a typical newborn is).  Faithe did a fabulous job and it was so great to spend some time with her and her family.  I cannot wait to see how much she has grown next time we make it to North Dakota again!
