This year has brought changes to our project.
Moving forward our goal is to expand across North America in a slighty different way. With the purchase of every Small+Mighty shirt, our project earns the proceeds. Those proceeds will then go towards sending Small+Mighty bodysuits to hospitals to give out to their tiny patients in honor of World Prematurity Day, November 17th.
This year we were able to send 300 bodysuits out to 15 NICU sites across Canada.
Winning the Mortgage Connection $25,000 Community Impact Giveaway has allowed us to become an official Non-Profit Organization and will help us reach out Charity status goal.
The long term goal for this project is for one day to have every family who walks through the doors of an NICU would receive one of our Small+Mighty bodysuits. I know that is a HUGE goal,
but I truly believe that if you dream big, big things happen.

Hello! My name is Kara and I am a lifestyle photographer. I love being creative, documenting connection and capturing real, raw moments with families. I have been lucky enough to have been a photographer for the Small + Mighty Project since the beginning and have never been more inspired by the families, the stories of the NICU but most importantly by these little fighters. Providing families with a gift to see their love, strength and connection with their children makes my heart full.
Hi! I'm Lindsay of Lindsay Skeans Photography. I am a relationship photographer specializing in capturing genuine images for families. I have had the pleasure of working with the Small + Mighty Project for a few years now and I am honoured every time I get to shoot in the NICU. It is an amazing experience to get to meet the families and to be able to give them these keepsakes of their little warriors.
I’m Jennica of Jennica Christine Photography. I’m a newborn and family photographer who believes in capturing real, authentic images to document each stage of childhood. My six year old daughter is a graduate of the Foothills NICU and is still a regular a the Alberta Children’s Hospital so this project is very personal for me. NICU days are long and very isolating so it is important to provide families with professional photos during this time that they can share with loved ones near and far. I am honoured each year to be able to partner with an amazing group of photographers to help make these sessions happen!
Hi! I'm Shirley, of Shirley Lynne Photography + Day in the Life of a Mom.
I specializes in capturing real life moments because there is true beauty in the chaos. The “day to day” is filled with incredibly meaningful moments that deserve to be captured and preserved and that is what Documentary Family Photography is all about. I have two young children and know that this phase of life can be a blur if we let it. Day in the Life of a Mom is a place that Moms can go when they need a non-judgemental lens on the reality of this amazing, yet challenging, phase of life.
Hi my name is Kristy-Anne, and I am a lifestyle photographer passionate about preserving memories. Success to me is defined by being able to live our lives with eyes wide open to the little miracles that are ever before us. Through photography I have found a way to help myself and others lock in on the little things, and little moments that often become the big things as time goes on. Not only do photographs help to preserve memories for years to come, they also help to remind us of how strong we are and of what really matters. Some years go by in a haze and sometimes it’s through photographs that we can find some of those beautiful pieces from those seasons. I love helping others find that beauty and creating art that becomes more precious with time. I was so humbled being a part of the Small + Mighty Project last year, and can’t wait to be a part of it this year. It changed me.
