How precious is LIFE!

The hands of a little tiny baby not weighing more than two pounds wraps around the index finger of a parent.  Each breath helped along a little to make it to the next until it can happen all on it’s own at just the right time…

I was given the opportunity last week to be a part of a shoot for a Neonatal intensive care unit.  There I saw how the littlest ones born often long before their due dates are cared for and loved by family and healthcare professionals. At each individual shot I found my self intensely touched to see these precious little ones and be a a part of their lives for a brief moment.

Remember how precious our very breath is today!

  1. Touching shots, Shawn!

  2. Shawn, these are gorgeous photos, amazing babes. We lost my mom last week (almost 91), and these tiny people are a stunning, lovely reminder that it’s a great big cycle.
