When you see a baby that’s just under 2 lbs and is alive, animated, & looking up at you with big beautiful eyes, you can’t help but be amazed at the wonders of life. The folks at MUSC Children’s Hospital are miracle workers for being able to do things like this every single day.


It was only a couple of weeks ago that I was talking to Aurora’s mother Crystal about shooting maternity pictures. She was worried that it was too soon and she wasn’t really showing much. Life happens in it’s funny ways and Aurora decided it was time to come out (way ahead of schedule). Lo and behold, I ended up shooting baby pictures!


Walking through the NICU is kind of intimidating – it’s looks like a scene from the X-FIles with all of these blue glowing pods and walls lined with medical equipment and monitors. I was expecting to see some alien being floating in a tube of liquid, but instead I saw little miracles of medical science as babies were being cared for with the greatest of expertise and love.


Crystal wanted to make sure we got a picture of Sarah, who’s one of many Sarah’s that have been attending to little Aurora. The new mom said that Sarah was her favorite nurse, but she never said which Sarah…


Welcome to the world little girl, you’ve got two loving parents and a big family just waiting to spoil you. What more could you ask for?
