SNEAK PEAK OF A TINY MIRACLE


Here she is Tiny Miracle Avery Grace. She arrived over 2 months early tipping the scales at 2 lbs and 2 oz. She was only 14.5 inches long. She even weighted less than 2lbs at one point. Our God has heard many prayers on her behalf. As you can see her here now, she looks like a typical newborn infant at 12 weeks and one day later. Her mommy and her family have become special to me since I photographed her wedding almost 3 years ago. At Christmas I gave them a newborn portrait session gift certificate preferably to be used when she was less than 3 wks. old. At that point, poor little Avery was still being poked and probed by the doctors and nurses and her Nonna was sending emails to everyone on list giving updates and continual reguests for prayers.

HER TINY MIRACLE BRACELET
(Still too big)
Premie babies are always a challenge to photograph. Though they look like newborns in size they have been here much longer and have become aware of their surroundings. Often they have had so many different tests for medical purposes for so long, that they really don't like being moved, changed, or anything. Knowing this in advance, I didn't try to do all the same little curled up newborn images with Baby Avery. I worked with what worked with her. And I must admit, we ended up with beautiful images for Avery's First Portrait Session.
Avery and Her Proud Parents
I love the way babies lay their hands on their chest.
I love little feet, but I really like this one. I've never done one like this with the little bow in it which is probably one reason I like it so much...something a little different.
Okay, Avery's Mommy and Nonna, this is your little sneak peak. I have picked out many great images to post. I am trying to get in the habit of picking out blog images immediately and then I will use it as a starting point for the rest of the editing when I get to that session. So I have all of Avery's ready to post, but I am only squeazing these few in for now since I have a few other sessions that I need to edit for blog images that were done before Avery's. I do try so hard to stay in event order as much as possible.
I hope everyone enjoy's Avery's Sneak Peak.
