Miss E’s Baby Photos near Stoneham MA
Miss E and her family came to my studio from nearby Stoneham MA for her new baby photos. At the time Miss E was actually a little over three months when these portraits were taken. She was born premature at 27 weeks and spent some time in the NICU. But she came to the studio, rocked her new baby portraits, and has been rocking all her milestones ever since! I photographed her again for her first birthday cake smash, and this past fall for some family portraits. I am always honored to be able to capture these beautiful keepsakes for families like this sweet family.
This was my first time meeting Miss E, but I had met her family before. I had photographed big brother J for his newborn and one year photos (you can check out his cake smash here: Stoneham First Year Portraits. And spoiler alert, they’re pretty hilarious). I had also photographed this family for fall family portraits before Miss E was born. You can see those photos here: Massachusetts Fall Family Photos.
Can NICU Babies Still Have Newborn Portraits?
As a mom myself, I know how stressful and scary the early days of having a new baby can be. And for those parents who have a child in the NICU, the stress and fear level is heightened exponentially. Which is why getting newborn portraits like these Stoneham baby photos is far down on the list of priorities even after baby is home and healthy. NICU stays can run anywhere from a few days, to months long. And the reasons for a NICU stay are just as varied. From premature births to jaundice, or birth defects to respiratory issues, and everywhere in between. To read more about being treated in the NICU click here.
If your little one has to spend time being cared for a little extra by the amazing nurses, doctors and staff of a NICU, the most important thing is that they are safe and healthy. But once they are home, it is never too late for baby portraits like these Stoneham baby photos. Whether your little one was premature or born full time but needing some extra medical help, we can absolutely take the photos whenever they’re home and healthy. If your baby is too old to be swaddled for the typical newborn photos, I can still take some super adorable baby pictures. I have plenty of accessories and props that will work no matter how old your baby is.
