We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints
will help families heal and remember how strong
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.
A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM
"Camila was born two months prematurely and she was 3 lbs 9 oz and little as she could be. I developed severe preeclampsia that provoked it all. Camila was in the NICU for 4 long weeks. I cried everyday and even now I cry knowing she had to stay at the hospital without me. I knew she was going to be well because I put all my faith in God's hands. It's not easy to see your baby with tubes all over her but you have to be strong to let doctors do whatever they need to do to make sure your baby is doing well."

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions.
This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Missouri City, Tx.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
