Ft Myers newborn photographer Laura Michele Photos partners with The Tiny Footprints Project to offer free photography services to parents and families of newborn premies staying in the NICU of local hospitals.
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” -Pablo Picasso
I spent several months thinking about and researching different ways I could give back to my community through my photography. It was very hard to decide on just one to start with, but I was very drawn to the cause of The Tiny Footprints Project. Being a newborn photographer, I know just how fleeting that precious newborn phase is. You blink, and they’re sitting up, crawling, walking, and so on. I felt so terrible for the families who had to spend months on end in the NICU of the hospital, and even worse about what their little babies were going through. It’s such a stressful time, full of worry, when the little life you just brought into the world can’t even come home with you.
You can find out more about The Tiny Footprints Project by visiting their website, or by visiting their Facebook page here. If you or someone you know has a premie in the NICU of a local (Fort Myers, Naples, or surrounding areas) hospital, please contact me, or The Tiny Footprints Project directly. The service is 100% free, and we hope to bring even the tiniest bit of joy to such a stressful time. Everyone should be able to have professional newborn photos of their babies.
Here are a few highlights of a recent session I did for TTFP. How beautiful is she? Her parents were absolutely wonderful, and I hope they love their images as much as I do!
Thanks so much for visiting!
