Handsome Liam's Preemie Prints NICU Grad Photo Session

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.

“Liam is a handsome, red headed, blue-eyed cutie pie! He was born 10-28-2013 due to placental abruption. He was 29 weeks 6 days gestation. He weighed 3 lbs 3 oz and 16.75 inches.

Liam is the 3rd child and first boy (also first preemie)! I was put on bedrest at 28 weeks due to bleeding, and then was moved to the hospital for round the clock monitoring for the last 6 days. The reason for the abruption is unknown. Having him 10 weeks early was terrifying. He is and has always been my little fighter! Liam spent 9 long weeks in the NICU. It was so hard for me as a mom to be torn between spending time with Liam and my other two children at home. I am FOREVER thankful for the angels (nurses and doctors) that took amazing care of my son.

He is now 9 months old. He is the sweetest, happiest little guy you'll ever meet! He works with an occupational therapist weekly to help strengthen his gross motor skills. His newest trick is sitting up! This has been a very challenging year for our family, but we are forever thankful for our friends and family's prayers.”

A Note From Hilary:
Almost a year ago Liam was born 10 weeks early. This session was extra special knowing how far Liam has come to meet the milestones so many mamas take for granted. This little guy is a charmer with his sweet personality and infectious smile. We had a little too much fun playing peek-a-boo!

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. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near New Braunfels, TX.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
