Parker's Preemie Prints 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.


"Parker Don born 7/29/14 at 33 weeks. Upon arrival he was 5lbs. 2oz. and 17.25 in. long! He surprised us with his early entrance but has been a fighter from the start and has overcome the challenges he was facing with being a preemie!

Last year when participating in the Little Monsters 5K I never thought I would be the parent to a child in the NICU; however, life always throws us surprises! Parker was stubborn and decided to make his arrival early to join us! I will always say he was jealous of the kisses his daddy was getting because my water broke as I was giving my husband a kiss goodbye when he was leaving for work.

Parker spent a week and a half in NICU and I cannot express how amazing the staff was at the College Station Medical Center NICU. I was blessed to be able to have a boarding room while Parker was a patient to allow me to breastfeed and pump to supply him with the best nutrients possible. I could not have asked for a better delivery, hospital stay, or new parent experience despite our surprise visit and stay in NICU."

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 College Station, TX.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
