25 Weeker August - 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.

 “My son is named August Sloane. He was born at 25 weeks 6 days weighing 1lb 13oz, and 13 inches on 4/12/14. He has undergone 2 surgeries for NEC, a PDA ligation, numerous transfusions, and has stage 2 ROP. He is an amazing little fighter with a beautiful soul. He has been in the NICU 15 weeks, and we hope to be home by the end of August.

When my water broke at 24 weeks I had no idea the roller coaster I was stepping on to. We have had amazing days and terrible days. But I know that this is exactly what was supposed to happen because this is exactly the child that we were supposed to get.”

A Note From Bekki:
August and his family were truly a joy to work with. You can absolutely see the love within 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 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 Charlotte, NC.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
