At six weeks, sweet Leanna was older than most of the newborns I photograph, but slept almost as much as little ones who are a few days old. She was wide awake for a little while too. In December I finished a huge project at Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville. Leanna was born during the time that all of the images were being hung and her parents got one of my business cards at the hospital.
As you can see, the purple Washington Regional logo is made up of squares and rectangles. One of the picture groupings I did is in the shape of the logo. All of the images are printed on metal and it is hanging on the wall across from the baby nursery. It’s so hard to see the depth of the metal in pictures…they are REALLY cool in person.
The next several images are all inside the nursery.
This collage is hanging where parents who have a little one in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can see it as they are leaving the nursery. A nurse told me how hard it is for parents to even imagine how much their pre-mature babies can grow and change in a few short weeks. She said she loves having a visual for parents to look at to give them encouragement and hope. Miles and his family have been though a LOT in the past four years and I know his mommy is so happy for their story in pictures to encourage other parents.
The hallways on the labor and delivery are decorated with some of my images as well as images from several other photographers. I worked with Lea Ann and Kristen of Shilo Cabinets and Chameleons on all of the frames for the project. They have beautiful custom frames as well as cute, fun custom painted frames in all shapes and sizes. Their website is under construction, but here is a link to their Facebook page: SHILO
