Baby Cliff's NICU fresh 48

Capturing sweet, little Cliff was such a beautiful experience for me. He was born a few weeks early & spent some time in the NICU so we weren't able to capture a true fresh 48, but I got to come photograph him on his release day from the hospital which was so tender! I had never been to the NICU before and was surprised to walk in & feel the plethora of emotions in the room. There were babies crying, machines beeping, and parents watching over their new little ones. There was both hope and sorrow in every corner. Seeing Cliff's bandaids and tubes be disconnected as he was preparing to be discharged was so special! I feel so lucky to have been there to capture Cliff & his mama, Elise, in their last precious moments together at the hospital before they headed home to dad & big sis!
