Meet this adorable little guy, his name is Keegan.
At only 40 hours old Keegan had a seizure, the first of many. They continued to progress and get worse so he was admitted to the nicu and taken in for a MRI. They found a severe brain hemorrhage had occurred at some point between being in utero and birth. They were thankfully able to get his seizures under control with medication and he hasn't had one since the start of the medication but there isn't much that can be done for the brain trauma except time and lots of love. Mom told me that he has lost a chunk of his top left of his brain and it's somewhat deep. They have an idea of what will be affected but aren't quite sure until he begins to grow and develop and hit/miss milestones. Currently he acts like a very typical newborn eating every few hours, crying when hes hungry or dirty, and giving mom and dad some lovely blow out diapers to change!
Let us all pray he continues to improve!
I can tell you he was a total love at his session. He was amazing for me while I worked with him at my studio! He slept through his two twin 20 month old brothers playing wildly enjoying lots of the toys and movies I offer to siblings to do while I photograph their baby bro/sis. Big Bro and Sis helped so much with the session making sure everyone was ok!
I am always honored to capture these first memories as babies are so small and sleepy and even more so when they been a super hero so early in their life!
Say a prayer if you pray or just keep this family and little Keegan in your thoughts as they navigate these murky waters of what will be. I am certain he will be the joy and calm in their lives and a wonderful addition to their family!
