Miracle Baby | Winston Salem, NC Photographer


If you are a longtime blog reader you may remember posts about Emmi.  She is the neice of my husband’s coworker and I am lucky enough to have her on my baby plan.  But Emmi is not just any other baby…she is truly a miracle.  She was born three months early weighing less than 2 pounds.  She spent several months in the NICU but is now doing amazingly well.  When I shot Emmi’s three month session she weighed around 5 pounds and behaved just like a newborn.  Here are a couple images from that session:


Emmi came back recently for her six month session and I was just blown away at her progress.  She is hitting the milestones of a typical three month old, as expected for a preemie, but just look at her.  Her chubby cheeks, her bright eyes, the way she’s holding that head up…it was so wonderful to see her progress!




I had the best time hanging out with her and listening to her cooing.  I can’t wait to update you on how she has changed when she returns in July!

Thank you all so much for the kind comments on the previous post.  I loved reading them and I’m sure I will come back and read them again when I am having a rough day. :)  I used random.org to choose the winner of the contest.

I'll have to get Miss Shelby to the groomer so we can schedule her session. She will be so glad to see you!
