Sweet Kayedyn's Preemie Print 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 son, Kayedyn, was born at 26 weeks on May 10th due to HELLP Syndrome. He was born weighing 2 pounds 4 ounces and 14 1/2 inches. When he was born they told me he would not make it past a month old and here he is, 9 weeks old and doing so much better!

Kayedyn is a true miracle. When I found out I was pregnant, I was scared because 6 months early, my 20 month old daughter, Madilynn Kaye had passed away. Early on the doctors noticed something was wrong with my sweet boy because he had increased NT. around 22 weeks I started bleeding heavy and was in labor. They found out I had a partial placenta abruption and Pre-Eclampsia. They stopped my labor and managed to keep little Kade in until 26 weeks when we both nearly lost our lives because of HELLP Syndrome. When he was born they told me he would live past a month and he has proven them wrong. He is now 9 weeks old and still fighting!”

 A Note From John:
The session went wonderfully. It was my first opportunity to shoot as a Preemie Prints volunteer and I really enjoyed it. Little Kayedyn just wanted to sleep and be held, but we were able to get some great shots of him awake and being comforted by mom. It seems he is close to the end of his NICU roller coaster ride, and I wish he and his family all the best.

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