A Micro Preemie Miracle | Durham Newborn Photographer

Every newborn session is truly special. I had the honor to photograph the Huynh family and I was so moved by this family’s love, strength, and resilience! I learned that baby Huynh was born in July, a couple months early of his expected due date of November. I also found out their son was born the day their movers were supposed to come and help them move to California for Frank’s new job!

All that to say, baby Huynh was truly a miracle baby—he was a micro preemie baby when he was born and weighed about a pound. He then spent the next five months in the NICU, and after gaining enough strength he was finally discharged on Christmas Eve (what a gift!!).

Frank then contacted me about getting newborn photos done while he was in town (since he was flying back and forth to California every two weeks for work), and I was so honored to document their beautiful family. Their little man was about 10 pounds when we photographed him and was such a joy to photograph! I loved how he much he enjoyed looking at his parents during the shoot, and he was SO alert and inquisitive! We also had so much fun having their dog, Rilo, join in on the family photos!

Capturing the joy and emotion of being a new parent is so beautiful, and documenting a baby’s new life is priceless. It truly is your story and love that inspires me when I photograph families, and I’m so humbled and honored when families choose me to be their photographer. Enjoy the highlights from this precious lifestyle newborn session (the last photo will melt your heart), and getting to know the amazing Huynh family!
