Precious Tyler's Preemie Prints NICU Grad 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. We are nearing our 200th session!! That means we've been able to touch a lot of families. In addition to the gift of photography, our programs include an online support group, group events and meetings, information, and email support. In the future we have hopes for a NICU support house in the Bryan College Station, TX area. This support house will give out of town parents a free place to stay while their little one is in the NICU. It will also have a NICU library, lactation room, developmental preemie play area, and will house our administrative offices. 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 special memories will help the parents to remember how strong they were in overcoming a crisis situation.
A journey note from mom:
"Tyler was born 7 weeks early due to mommy's preeclampsia and went directly to the All Children's Hospital NICU right after birth via cesarean. We spent 3 weeks and 1 day in the NICU. It was such a scary time for us being new parents. The NICU at All Children's is such a special place with Special care. We had a caring nursing and neonatology staff that helped us understand what was going on and also taught us how to care for a baby and prepared us for when it was time to bring Tyler home. Tyler was a fighter from the beginning continuously increasing his feeds, gaining the weight and graduating from all the machines to eventually just sleeping in the big boy crib."

A note from volunteer photographer Jamie:
"Tyler was one of the happiest baby I have ever had the pleasure of photographing! He was laughing the whole time and chasing me! (usually its vise versa!) His eyes lite up with joy seeing his balloons and he was just so happy to sit and hold them, then the cake came out! and he dove right in! and when daddy showed him it was tasty and squishy he went to town! and he was a messy boy! You couldn't have asked for a more perfect day with the most perfect baby! He is truly a miracle and a joy!"
