Red Méthot (aka RedM), a photographer from Quebec, has a new photo series that celebrates how far premature babies have come.
Las Premas (The Premature Babies) is a collection of portraits featuring both children and adults who were born prematurely posing with a black-and-white image of their former, tiny selves.
Look at them now with their chubby cheeks and adorable smiles! Amazing to see them so big and healthy.
RedM, whose two children were born prematurely, hopes the project will help people understand prematurity and give parents who are currently struggling the courage and hope they deserve.
Those days, weeks, sometimes months in the NICU are terrifying, overwhelming and filled with what-ifs for parents. But, hopefully these photos can provide a ray of hope.
You can check out the rest of his powerful portraits on his facebook page.
