It had been six years since this family had welcomed their last baby...thinking he would be their last. Afterall, they had three beautiful healthy grown kiddos! Then one day they got a shocking surprise...they were pregnant. Excited and stunned, what they didn't know was that this pregnancy was about to take them on the ride of their lives.
Baby Wyatt was born at 27 weeks weighing in at 3 pounds. He spent some time in the NICU on a ventilator with chest tube for 3 days. They actually almost lost him at 4 days old. Then he recovered, grew stronger each day, and at 48 days new was released and able to go home.
This little guy has earned the title "warrior." When he showed up for his first ever photo shoot, I was taken aback. Not only was he a good sized 9 month old baby, but his face just lit up the room. I am honored that I got to capture some of the first portraits of this beautiful child.
Here's their journey....
