Philadelphia Triplets: A Preemie Prints NICU 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.

“We welcomed our TRIPLETS on August 17th at 32 weeks. Our smallest girl, Cecillia, is 2lbs 13ozs and our other girl and boy, Claire and Gregory are 3lbs 12ozs and 3lbs 13ozs.
With triplets we were fully anticipating a stay in the NICU and were hoping to get as far along in the pregnancy to limit our stay. At first I thought making it to 34-36 weeks would be a breeze, but with a triplet pregnancy there are a lot of things to watch out for and we ended up having to deliver at 32 weeks. The doctors and nurses have all been amazing and having anticipated a stay in the NICU I was able to be more mentally prepared for our early delivery, even when it happened unexpectedly.”

A Note From Sarah:
It was such a pleasure meeting this special family. I clicked with them instantly! The babies are simply beautiful and doing very well health wise. I was happened to be there the first time that dad was able to hold Baby B (Cecilia). I was so excited to capture that special moment for this family. With the help of the nurses, we were able to have the babies together for the first time since their delivery so I could capture those images. It was an honor for me to be able to take these photographs for this family.

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