Princess Zoey's NICU Grad Photo 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. 

We pray these special memories will help the parents to remember how strong they were in overcoming a crisis situation.
A note from Mom and Dad:

"My miracle baby girl's name is Zoey Elizah Gonzalez. She came into this world fighting at 31 weeks weighing 1lb 15oz due to growth restrictions. We spent 3 months at the NICU due to a blockage in her intestines and her tiny size, she fought with all her might to live as she was restricted from complete food intake. It was the hardest three months of our lives as we saw our one and only baby girl slowly grow not knowing if the next day we would get save bad news. Gram by gram we cheered when she gained and worried when she lost or stayed the same. But, God was holding her hand the whole way through. Knowing how hard she fought to stay alive has changed my perspective in life. I would like to thank each and everyone that saw us through this dark moment in our lives and enjoy every day we get to spend time with our princess."

A note from Andrea:
"I had the great privilege of meeting this lovely little bit and her parents this past weekend. We met at The Waterway in The Woodlands for an early evening session to mark her recent first birthday. She came into this world weighing less than 2 pounds, but you’d never know it. She is a tough little cookie with so much energy and personality. She is on the verge of taking her first steps on her own—I told her parents that I might have to switch to shooting video in the middle of the shoot to capture the moment!
I had a wonderful time with this family. This baby girl is so lucky to having two loving parents so obviously devoted to her and so clearly grateful for their miracle baby. Thank you for a lovely afternoon, and I hope you love these pictures of your precious girl."
