Cheeky Little Monkey!!
I had the pleasure of meeting this little man yesterday. He is just adorable at 5 months old and is a real little fighter. He was born at only 25 weeks and has fought his way through, what a little star. His nickname has been Little Monkey since shortly after he was born - hence the photo props! How cute does he look!! It was a lovely session and wonderful for Mum and Dad to have some photographs to capture their precious memories of their gorgeous baby.
I really do believe that all babies are special but these little premature babies are truly something extra special. Against the odds they have battled and survived - just amazing. It must be a very emotional and worrying time for their parents and other family members and so definitely a time to celebrate once they are able to come home and really start their family life together. There is a wonderful UK Charity called BLISS who work "to provide the best possible care and support for all premature and sick babies and their families." They are holding a BAKE FOR BLISS charity event 12 - 15 February 2015 to raise money. If you are interested in hosting, supporting, or donating you can find further information here http://www.bliss.org.uk
