In July of 2012, little Ward Scot was born at 26 weeks, 14 weeks early. He weighed less than 1.5 pounds and remained in the NICU for the next 101 days.
Over the course of 15 months, Ward’s father, photographer and filmmaker Benjamin Scot, took hours of footage of his infant son progressing from terrifyingly fragile to beautifully healthy. Many of the clips are of Ward with his mother sharing moments of struggle and joy, often both at the same time.
At the end of October, the Scots marked a year since Ward was able to come home. In celebration, Benjamin made his wife this montage.
