"I know firsthand what it feels like to be a parent with a baby in the NICU. In March of 2011, I had my first child and that lovely little girl needed to be closely monitored by the kind nurses in the NICU. It was a trying time for us, but we prayed our way through it, and I am happy to say I now have a 3 year old NICU graduate! Being a photography, I took many photos of my daughter while she was in the hospital and I still treasure those photos more than many others. Having that time in our lives documented was almost therapeutic, so I would be honored if I could extend that service to other families as 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 sherri @ preemieprints.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions.
