Fierce fighters need photos too.
Sometimes you have weeks to process a preterm delivery, other times birth can be unpredictable and life throws you a curveball. Under most circumstances a photographer should be able to make it in to the NICU or special care nursery accompanied by mom or dad at some point in your baby's stay. It might be right after birth, or the visit may have to be postponed until baby is more stable and stronger for visitors. Even though it might not have been the "plan" you envisioned for the birth of your baby, you will cherish having this part of their story told.
