Premature Baby Now Adults Like A Pro In Adorable Photoshoot
A premature baby who was born nine weeks early has proved it hasn't held him back as he now adults like a pro.
Ryan MacMillan spent the first six weeks of his life in the NICU after he was born weighing just 3lbs but at six months he's now thriving and his dad, Matt MacMillan wanted to show exactly that.
When Ryan was born, his parents joked that he was 'advanced' rather than premature, so Matt came up with the idea of doing an 'adulting' photoshoot, and the results are pretty incredible.
Of course, most of the shoots are down to photoshop, but there was some impressive work that went into setting the scene, framing the shot, arranging props and setting up lighting.
Explaining his methods, Matt wrote on Bored Panda: "After I got the pictures of Ryan, I would take some shots of anything that he couldn't actually hold, like the ax swinging or the fish on the fishing line.
"After each shoot, I would comb through these hundreds of photos and choose the best ones. I then used Photoshop to remove myself from the pictures and combine the best parts of his body into a unified composite photo."
He continued: "Most people found them funny but there were always a few people that feared for Ryan's safety. I always explained how the 'danger' all came from photoshop and he was always being held and was never in any harm.
"I'm curious to see what Ryan thinks of them 18 years from now when he's actually grown up."
Matt finished off his piece by offering three pieces of advice for any other parents of premature babies.
"Be patient, be positive and seek support."
