Okay, so I do not normally blog mini's, but there are exceptions to every rule. Especially when baby has such an incredible story.
I have had the fortune of photographing many of this families milestones and Thomas is the third boy for them (I have a soft spot for 3 boys obviously). What they where not expecting is what happened in the delivery room.
Did you know that 1 in 100 babies are born with a knot in the umbilical cord? This is a stat that they learned upon Thomas's delivery. A stat that no parent wants to hear. Of those babies, the vast majority do not make it. They where told that Thomas is truly a miracle and to take a photo of that cord. It happens that only 0.04% of babies are born with a knot and survive. Not only did he survive, but he is perfect.
It was an honor to photograph this miracle baby and this is his "newborn mini session".
