Preemie Prints NICU Photo Shoot - Lachlan & Alexandra

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 special memories will help the parents to remember how strong they were in overcoming a crisis situation.

A note from mom:
"My twins were born very early at 25 weeks. They both have had been in the incubator since birth, had several surgeries including stomach drain for perforated intestine and PDA ligation on my little girls heart. Both have IVH brain bleeds so we are not sure if their long term outcomes. My little boy has bilateral Grade 4 IVH and we are not sure if he will make it out the hospital.

In spite of their initial start in life, Alexandra is a very strong and feisty girl who is continually stretching like a dancer and opening her eyes to our voices. Her brother Lachlan is sweet and more calm than her sister and especially opens his eyes to his fathers voice."

Volunteer Photographer:
Holly Smith Lauer Preemie Prints volunteer Marietta, GA

A note from volunteer photographer Holly:
"They are such precious babies and Clare was just wonderful.
My pictures were difficult to get, I was unable to use any flash or additional lighting as the
rooms are kept dark for the babies comfort. I appreciate this opportunity - what a gift to these parents and families!"

These images are property of Preemie Prints, our volunteer photographers, and our families who have allowed us to share them with you. Please do not use for any purpose.

We hope you had a very blessed holiday season. As we near our 200th gifted photo shoot we sincerely thank you for supporting Preemie Prints and all of our efforts to share hope with NICU families across the nation. With your help we have been able to give the gift of memories to many families who have faced the NICU journey.
