Though she be but little, she is fierce – Shakespeare.
Ruby was born 5 years ago at 32 weeks weighing just 1076 grams, or 2 pound 2 in the old scale. I cannot begin to imagine how scary those first moments were for her family. But little Ruby here is a fighter and is as strong as they come. Despite her tiny birth weight, a heart defect, eye condition and ongoing developmental difficulties this kid is going places! She is not one to let anything get in the way of bringing so much joy and life to everyone who meets her.
Ruby was photographed as part of the Beautiful You Project which offers complimentary photography sessions and high resolution images for children with special needs. If you would like to learn more about this project please click here
