Aiden A.

Aiden was born to Magda and Jerod on November 27, 2017—a full four months premature. He weighed one pound, seven ounces at birth. He is fed through a tube and breathes with the aid of a ventilator. “He is always smiling,” his mother says, then adds, “Ironically, he was very serious and straight-faced for the Soulumination photographer. He has a wonderful fighter’s spirit and positive attitude.”

The Soulumination portraits, she says, “allowed us to capture our family together for the first time for a holiday since Aiden’s birth. They allowed us to celebrate the good, the positive, and treasure our sweet boy and how lucky we are to have him.
