Sweet Kelsey'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:
"Our little girl overcame so much in such a short time. It's a miracle she wasn't born at 26 weeks when my water broke. She was a fighter from the beginning. Kelsey was born at 31 weeks and 4 days. She was only 3 pounds 11 ounces. She is our miracle baby."

A note from Dina:
"I am very shocked with how far the family was willing to drive to meet me to take photographs of sweet little Kelsey. Unfortunately the city that the family lives in is not big enough to house a NICU, so in most cases families are brought to Tucson to be placed at one of the bigger NICU facilities. In this case the family, by the time Kelsey was almost 2 months old were used to driving back and forth between Tucson and their home. I have to say this day we were so luck to have her still be such a sleepy baby. She slept almost the entire session except for one of two little peeks to see what was going on around her. You can tell that her older brother is in love with her and I'm sure so happy to have a little sister to play with and protect as they get older. I have to say this little girl is so strong and lucky to have such a beautiful and wonderful family! It was also so lovely to talk to this sweet family about their story."
