Little Linux's 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.

“Linux Oppenheimer was born 4lbs 6 oz at 31 weeks gestation on July 30th 2014. He is currently located at Nationwide Children's Hospital. He was born early due to a placenta detachment that resulted in an emergency C-section.

After less than a week into the world, his TPM IV backed up causing a burn along his hand. As of today, August 21st, he had a skin graft for his hand due to the amount of damage. This has been the largest stepping-stone in Linux's stay at the hospital so far. In the last three weeks, he has been weaned off of his oxygen, c-pap, nasal cannula, feeding tube, and isolate for heating regulation. These were re-added on and off when adverse effects to various drugs while redressing his wound caused respiratory arrest.”

A Note From Beth:
"We met at Schiller Park for our session after Linux had a follow up appointment at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  Everything checked out great for him!  We had a great time doing his photos, and got lots of gorgeous shots!  Congratulations to Linux for graduating from the NICU!"

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 Columbus, OH.

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