I can hardly believe this little peanut is already ONE! I feel like I just took her newborn pictures…like, yesterday! She is such a little bundle of happiness and love, its hard not to just smile when your around her, and the fact that she is somewhere in-between the size of a ‘typical’ three to six month old it really just makes you want to SQUEEZE HER!
Vivian was born with Turner Syndrome. A chromosomal condition that occurs in 1/2000 live female births. This means, that she is simply missing an X chromosome–in result, there are some physical anomolies associated with the syndrome as well as some physiological. One of them, is a growth impediment and or short stature in general. Hence, this sweet peanut’s size! (If you’d like to learn more about Turner Syndrome, please visit http://www.turnersyndrome.org–knowledge is power!)
I was so happy to have them over to my new in-home studio to capture some images of this point in her journey! I initially intended for the studio to be a better solution to newborn photos than going on-location, but quickly interest grew and Wisconsin winters really pushed me in this direction. So here we are–in the studio–what was once a spare 10×12 bedroom in my basement–making memories!!
