Amazing Little Autumn: 26 weeker, 2 pound Fighter

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.


“Autumn Renee was born at 26.6 weeks weighing only 2lbs 1oz. She is a fighter and is just above 3lbs now. She was born July 17, 2014 so now 6weeks and 32 weeks gestational age. She smiles when I talk to her and has rather large hands and feet.

When they say it's a roller coaster they weren’t lying! We have been through three transfusions, an infection, feeding issues and reflux. There are days when all I want to do is hold her but she lets me know she has other plans. Being her mom has put so much into perspective for me. Life is precious and God works in his way to show his miracles.”

A Note From Stephanie:
"Sweet baby Autumn was awake our whole session. She was so happy and just relaxed. A photographers dream baby shoot. She was very alert and wasn’t going to miss a thing. She was born at 26 weeks and was getting ready to get to go home in a fews after her session. I wish you all the luck in the world baby girl."

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 Plano, TX

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