Colton's NICU Grad Session

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families’ inspirational story & photos. Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families. 

We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints will help families heal and remember how strong they were in overcoming their NICU journey together. 


Colton was born at 23 weeks--sadly, he lost his twin at 12 days old.  When Colton came to the studio for a cake smash session, we definitely wanted to include some memories of Elijah.

A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM SKYLAR GRACE'S FAMILY

My rainbow baby was born at 33 weeks and 3 days. My pregnancy was going great until a sudden onset of severe preeclampsia. I was observed for several days until waiting was no longer a choice. Thankfully baby girl came into this world a fighter. We spent nearly 2 weeks in NICU. I am a single mother and camped out at the hospital due to lack of transportation. I pushed through and prayed constantly for our strength. Skylar was initially expected to stay hospitalized until October. She said otherwise! She's my hero.

 






Skylar Grace's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Brian C. Parks.

A Note From Brian:

Between weekends filled with rain, we managed to find a great day on which to shoot. A bit muggy out, but litte Skylar Grace was a super trooper and handled her first photo shoot with aplomb! She did a great job, and marveled at the bridal portrait session that was happening at the same location.

Welcome, Cory! New Photography Volunteer

Please help us welcome volunteer photographer, Cory! She will be helping give the gift of NICU photography to preemie and NICU families in Florida!


Cory Janiak
Ebb and Flow Photography

Service AreaIndian River County, Saint Lucie County, Brevard County, Martin County FL 

Hospitals: Indian River Medical Center (Vero Beach), Lawnwood Medical Center (Fort Pierce), Holmes Regional Medical Center (Melbourne), Saint Lucie Medical Center (Port St. Lucie), Tradition Medical Center (Port St. Lucie), Martin Memorial (Stuart) 

About Cory:

I am a mother of two and owner/ photographer at Ebb and Flow Photography. My parenting journey started later in life when I had my first child at 34 years old. I started my business after he was born to follow my lifelong passion for photography, but primarily so that I could stay home with him and watch him grow. I specialize in serving growing families on the Treasure Coast of Florida through Maternity, Birth, Newborn, and Family documentary and portrait photography. I understand and appreciate the value of every smile, every tear, every breath. Over the years I have been touched by many of my client’s stories of their struggles and joys during NICU stays with their children. It was by the grace of one of these clients - another Preemie Prints volunteer - that I realized it was a photography service I could provide for local families. Through Preemie Prints I can donate my talent and services to help families treasure their children during their most vulnerable and tiny times and celebrate even the littlest victories.

A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM

“Mom went into preterm labor at 27 weeks. She went into her doctor for a checkup in the morning, and the doctor stuck her straight in a wheel chair and took her over to labor and delivery. They managed to control the labor long enough to get an ambulance to take her to a hospital with a level 3 NICU, but the babies were determined to come. Samuel and Lily were born by emergency c-section that night - two and a half pounds each.”



Lily and Sam’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Rita Davis.
