Baby Alika

~Meet the adorable Alika~

Click here for more of her photos as I add them to the blog

...So small she fits inside a Twins baseball cap...this little one has her own story. Weighing in at only 1 pound, 10 ounces and 13 inches long, Alika had some fighting to do.

She was born April 23, 2010 at 4:11 in the morning; her mommy was only twenty seven weeks pregnant when this she made her entrance into our world. Alika spent 96 day in the NICU.

Now home, I had the great privilege to photograph her. Alika is still on oxygen and you will see in some of the photos her O2 tubing as well as her feeding tube in her belly. We were able to take the tubing off for short moments to photograph her without it; however, these things are part of her story and take nothing away from how beautiful she is. Her parents agree. What a wonderful experience. Thank you Mesa and Dustin!
