About Maria:
"My name is Maria Shakir. I live in N. Virginia with my husband of 13 years and 4 beautiful children. Photography has always been a big part of my life ever since my first born in 1995. Over the years I've taken pictures of many children and LOVED it. Being a volunteer photographer for Preemie Prints is truly an honor and I can't wait to share my love for photography to the parents that need it most to capture the lives of their precious gift." 

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 sherri @ and visit our website at To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions.
