Little Natalie's NICU Grad Photo 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. 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:
"Prior to being born, Natalie was under careful watch from our perinatologist. Natalie had "bright bowels" and was measuring small for her age. At 34 weeks, she only measured the size of a baby at 30 weeks. Our perinatologist sheduled a csection for 37 weeks, as soon as she could be considered full term. She was diagnosed with intrauterine growth restriction and they expected her to grow better outside of the womb. She was born screaming, but stopped breathing in the operating room. After a few scary minutes and several doctors and the NICU team working on her, she started breathing again. She was 4 lbs 14 ozs. She spent 16 days int the NICU working on breathing and fighting jaundice."

A note from Lindsey:
"When I first started chatting with Natalie's mom I told her that we could wait just awhile so that when we take her pictures she would be able to sit up all by herself.  So, a few  months later we had her session, and of course it was chilly the day of Natalie's session, but she rocked it in her darling hoodie!!  She is so tiny and sweet, she stole my heart.  I'm so glad her mom found Preemie Prints and that I could do this session for them."
