Baby Edward's NICU Grad Photo Shoot

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.

  "Our baby's name is Edward John. He was born on July 9, 2014. He came 11 weeks early at 29 weeks. He is currently 37 weeks old and still in the NICU at Pennsylvania Hospital. He was 2lbs 2 oz at his birth and now weighs 5lbs. He is still on supplemental oxygen and is having trouble eating and breathing at the same time but he should be coming home shortly after he masters breathing . The NICU at Pennsylvania Hospital has been an amazing second home to my husband and I for the past 2 months. The staff is so amazing and most are like family to us now. The time has gone quickly and has been an easy ride because of the way we have been treated. We would highly recommend this hospital to other parents."

A Note From Sarah:
This family was such a treat to work with. Baby Edward had just come home from the NICU three days prior to our session, following a two month stay. He's clearly surrounded by such love in his family. Mom and dad were so welcoming  and Baby Edward was giving us such great smiles throughout the session. Big sister Khloe didn't miss a beat with the smiles when it was her turn either. My favorite part of the session was at the very end, when Khloe ran to get her own camera and began directing her own family photo shoot. I think she may have a future as the next generation of Preemie Prints photographers!

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 graduate photography session that took place near Philadelphia, PA.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
