Sweet Benjamin's 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.

My Benjamin was born at 29 weeks via emergency c-section after being flown to Medical City in Dallas. He weighed 3 lbs 1 oz and was 16 inches long. It's been the normal NICU roller coaster ride, He's had his ups and downs. He's currently 34 weeks old, weighs 4 lbs and 12 oz and has started bottle feeding, we hope we can go home in a few weeks.

A Note From Minvi:
Here are some pictures of Kimberly with her son, Benjamin, taken at the Medical City NICU. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to meet them. Benjamin weighs now at 5lbs. and they are still continuing to monitor his apnea. Kimberly had hoped to have him released the following week after my visit. However, Benjamin had another episode which postponed his release. He is such a sweet little baby and I enjoyed visiting with Kimberly and knowing a little bit more about her family. She is anxious to be reunited with her husband and older son, who's 3 years old and currently in the care of his grandma (Kim's mom) while Kimberly stays in the hospital with Benjamin. Kimberly, who is a budding photographer, hopes to one day be able to "pay it forward" and share her talent with other NICU families."

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 photography session that took place near Dallas, TX.

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