Time is a game played beautifully by children. (Heraclitus)

Diagnosed with CCHE, baby Joshua spent the first five months of his life in hospital. I photographed him for his first birthday and I don't think I've ever photographed a more excited couple of parents. They just couldn't take their eyes of their little boy and I was lucky to actually catch them looking at the camera!

Joshua is a strapping 8-year old now and has the responsibility of looking after two, younger brothers.

Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS) is a rare genetic condition which results in an abnormal development of the body’s automatic nervous system in early fetal life. The main consequence is a failure to automatically control breathing, which is always present during sleep, but may occur in some individuals when they are awake. More information - click here.
