Meet Joshua: A 25 Weeker 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.

“Joshua was born on April 26 2014. He was 25.4 weeks gestation. He was 2 pounds even and 13.5 inches long

We spent 3 months in the NICU. There were a lot of scary and stressful days and nights but through prayer and God's grace it is finally behind us now. What helped me get through the NICU was my faith, and the prayer, love and support from family and friends. Talking to other NICU parents who understood what you were going through was also very helpful.”

A Note From Cassandra:
"It was such a pleasure to meet Joshua as well as his parents.  When I spoke with Walda on the phone she assured me I would be coming at his "sleepy" time so that she could get some newborn styled images.  Well Joshua was eager to prove his momma and therapists wrong about our entire session from the smile he shot me (off camera of course), to being sleepy (which he wasn't), and even holding his head up (which he had not done until then)!  Meeting families like this make me so happy to be a part of Preemie Prints!"

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 sherri@preemieprints.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. 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 Orlando, FL.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
