17 photos of adorable kids who were born prematurely, now holding their own baby pictures.

In Canada, about 29,000 infants are born prematurely each year, roughly 1 in every 13. But in the United States, around 400,000 to 500,000 are born early. That’s about 1 in every 8 to 10 babies born in the U.S.!

Red Méthot, a Canadian photographer and student, decided to capture the resilience of many of these kids for a school photography project.

He’s the father of two prematurely born kids himself, so the topic is important to him.

Méthot’s school project originally consisted of 10 photos, but the reaction has been so positive and he’s enjoyed taking them so much, he continued adding to the collection.

Meet several of the beautiful kids he photographed!

1. Lexiani, born at 25 weeks

2. Noah and Nathan, born at 32 weeks

12. Juliette, born at 30 weeks

13. Léonard, born at 35 weeks

14. Olivier, born at 31 weeks, his sister Ariane, born at 33 weeks, and their brother Noah, born at 34 weeks.

15. Émile, born at 26 weeks

16. Théo, born at 25 weeks

17. Charles-Antoine and Mara, born at 27 weeks

Méthot’s school project originally consisted of 10 photos, but the reaction has been so positive and he’s enjoyed taking them so much, he continued adding to the collection.

Currently, he has captured 50 images. (You can view them all in the album on his Facebook page!). Méthot told me that his favorite part of the project has been meeting the subjects.

“Each time I meet a new person, I [learn] about a new story,” he said.

And I think we can all agree that Méthot is a wonderful storyteller through his photography. Between his photos showing the bright future so many premature babies have and his photo showing the loss, he captures reality beautifully.
