Sweet Miracle Amelia Rose's NICU Photo Shoot with Merissa!

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families inspirational story & photos. Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.

We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints 
will help families heal and remember how strong 
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.

"My beautiful daughter's name is Amelia Rose, she was born April 6th at 25 weeks via emergency c section and she weighted 1lb 6 ounces. I had preeclampsia that's why she came so early. She has already went through a lot getting her PDA closed in her heart, shes a trooper, and the best feeling in the world is being able to see her whether it's in person or a forever keepsake. I appreciate all yall's help thank you.."

A note from Merissa:
"Amelia is tiny but very alert! She was so easy to work with and her mother is the sweetest thing. The nurses were completely cooperative and helped me with whatever I needed! It was a privilege to be able to take pictures of sweet Amelia."

Preemie Prints is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization sharing hope with NICU families through a variety of support programs. One of those programs is the gift of NICU photography and preemie photography. NICU families from across the US can request a no-charge photography session by a Preemie Prints volunteer. The family request from can be found on the right side of our website. These sessions are free of charge and for any NICU family, regardless of time spent in the NICU. The NICU photo shoot can take place inside the NICU or after baby is discharged and at home until their 1st birthday. Facing time in a NICU with a premature or critically ill baby is an extremely difficult time for families. Preemie Prints has a mission to share hope by letting families know they are not alone. Preemie Prints currently has over 100 volunteers nationwide. We are always looking for more volunteers to share in our mission! If you are interested, please email and visit our website at To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU photography baby photo shoot that took place 
at Texas Children's in Houston TX.

We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families. We pray they are home with sweet baby Amelia very soon.
