Micro Preemie Newborn Session Springfield MO


The famous Ryker McGee came to my studio to get his Newborn portraits done! Although he is actually 6 months old in this newborn session, he is literally the size of a typical newborn. This sweet little boy was born a 25 week-old micro preemie, weighing just 1 pound and 13 ounces. At the bottom of this blog I included an image of Ryker next to a dollar bill and it is right by him! It looks like an optical illusion but it’s really hard to comprehend how tiny micro preemies are! I started praying for this boy long before he was even conceived.

His amazing parents fought to meet their son for many years and
never ever gave up. Through a long journey of IVF and the NICU…
he is HERE, HEALTHY, and oh so HAPPY. 
I am just one person, in a small army, praising God for Ryker McGee.

Another baby boy added to the Esther Ziegler Studio family!! Here are a few favorite portraits of his newborn session. Have I said lately, I always have and always will LOVE being a photographer??
