NICU Photos: Baby Millie's Preemie Prints Session!

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.

A note from mom: 
We have been at 3 different hospitals so far. Millie has been amazing as she has suffered some serious unexpected setbacks. I didn't get to hold her until day of life 14 because she was so sick. She was intubated 3 different times and on the ventilator for 2 weeks. She had a tube placed through her chest wall into her lung for 10 days. She has been to the operating room 3 times now for airway issues which thankfully seem to be fixed! We are now working on feeding and getting bigger so we can go home.

Volunteer Photographer:

A note from Kelsey
Millie was born at 30 weeks and is now at 37 weeks. Hopefully, she will be able to go home soon. She is a beautiful girl who is very strong and alert. I loved being able to photograph their life inside the NICU. For all the pain it has caused, they are truly a beautiful family.
