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.

Preemie Prints is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization sharing hope with NICU families through a variety of support programs. One of those programs is the gift of NICU photography and preemie photography. NICU families from across the US can request a no-charge photography session by a Preemie Prints volunteer. The family request form can be found on the right side of our website. These sessions are free of charge and for any NICU family, regardless of time spent in the NICU. The NICU photo shoot can take place inside the NICU or after baby is discharged and at home until their 1st birthday. Facing time in a NICU with a premature or critically ill baby is an extremely difficult time for families. Preemie Prints has a mission to share hope by letting families know they are not alone. Preemie Prints currently has over 100 volunteers nationwide. We are always looking for more volunteers to share in our mission!

NICU Grad Session - Carter, College Station Tx

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

A Note From Brian:

Carter did a great job for his first big photo shoot! The weather was great, as well–clear skies and warm. Though a little reluctant at first, Carter brightened up once he discovered the multiple water features at the A&M Gardens. He had a ball splashing in the water (though it may have been smarter to save that activity until the end!).

Photos belong to our volunteer photographers, families, and organization – please do not use for any purpose.
