Newborn Photo Session in the NICU

Newborns tug at my heart strings.  They are so small and delicate!  Newborns can be so squishy and tiny, then they grow up so quickly.  I loved my babies (not so much the no sleeping part of it), but newborns are their own kind of special!  Which is one of the many reason I love newborn photography!

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot newborn photographs in the NICU for The Tiny Footprints Project last month for Marva.

Little Marva came into the world early weighing 1lb 10oz.  She's a fighter with a loving mom and sister.  She was cared for with love by the NICU Doctors and Nurses at Seton Hospital in Austin.

Enjoy her newborn NICU photographs!

Creating Memories inside the NICU

Awhile back, a photographer posted in a local group about needing more photographer volunteers for The Tiny Footprint Project.  Something about the post hit me and made an impression.

I looked into The Tiny Footprint Project to see what it was all about.  This wonderful organization is a non-profit which matches families living with infants in the NICU with professional local photographers to provide a lifestyle session to capture the newborns earliest moments.  I knew I wanted to be a part of this great organization.

As a mom, I know how important it is to document your babies beginnings because they grow so fast.  Newborns in the NICU are extra special and extra strong as are their families.  Enjoy this sweet session of baby Leila!
