Mr. “P” here is a special little guy! He is 6 weeks old here, much older than my typical “newborn” sessions but he has a special story! He was born with a heart condition called “Coarctation of the aorta” and required heart surgery 8 days after he was born. In a nutshell, part of the aorta was too narrow and had to be widened to allow for proper blood flow. As such, he obviously wasn’t up to coming in for a photo op within his first week of life. When he came to see me at 6 weeks, he was still a sleepy little guy but didn’t really want to “curl” or do much of the tummy posing. He sure let me know it too! That was just fine and I worked him and how he was most comfortable and happy, which was on his side. When Mom brought him back a couple weeks later for the viewing appointment, I couldn’t believe how much he had changed! He was smiling at me and was just such a joy! Mom signed up for the Baby’s First Year Plan with me so you will get to see this little guy grow!!!! Every time I hold a baby, I am reminded of how each little life is such a miracale!
