Baby Ryan {Orange County NICU Photography}

Baby Ryan is actually one of my “September babies” who was born about 6 weeks earlier than scheduled. Being that NICU babies hold such a special place in my heart (because of my other profession), I wanted to document this delicate time for Ryan’s family. He was actually doing pretty well when I came to visit him, so I’m sure with just a bit more feeding & growing, he’ll be home in no time!

There are some things we take for granted, such as an infant being able to eat from a bottle. Preemies who are 35 weeks and less struggle with the suck/swallow/breath coordination, as well as the stamina to actually finish a bottle. But Ryan mastered that with ease during this particular feeding.orange county nicu photographer
