Miracle Baby ~ Gabriel's NICU Graduate Shoot!

Please enjoy our inspirational photos and consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. Our programs include an online support group, the gift of photography, group events and meetings, information, and email support. Our mission is to connect parents and let them know they are not alone. We thank our supporters, volunteers, and donors for allowing us to touch the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families. We pray these memories will help the parents to remember how strong they are in overcoming an extremely difficult time! 

A note from mom: 
"My son Gabriel was born 13 weeks premature July 21, 2011 weighing 2 lbs 8 ozs 15 in tall. He spent 93 days in the NICU. I was 27 week pregnant and he came unexpectedly. I still remember the first day I went to visit Gabriel in the nicu. Telling myself ok we have a about 16 weeks to go. I was very overwhelmed being a first time mother, I had never been around anything like this. So much to learn in so little time. Went off the ventilator 3 weeks later and started breathing on his own. As weeks went by recovering from my surgery he was growing so fast, and learning. So many test and wires I knew he was in good hands. A little over 3 months we finally graduated, it's still hard passing by the hospital and hope Gabriel will visit once he is a lil older."

A note from Carolyn
"Mom picked a great location it was the beautiful Botanical Gardens. The session went smoothly with her help too! She did a great job with getting Gabriel's attention. He didn't cry, was smiling, and was so good!"
