Amazing Little Freya's Preemie Prints 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.

“I went into Texas Children's with severe Preeclampsia at 27 weeks. I was going into liver failure at 29 weeks and they decided on an emergency C-section. She (Freya) was born 29 weeks, 2 lbs. 11 oz., 15 3/4 in. She was perfectly healthy other than her low birth weight. She was in the NICU for nearly 2 months. She had the whole works while she was there. I lived in her room the whole time while my husband was trying to move us from Bryan to Houston, got a new job, graduated A&M with a Masters the weekend she was born and in a custody battle for his older son. We were pretty stressed, but none of it mattered because we knew we were lucky she came healthy. She stood up on me 2 days after she was born and was very active. She finally was able to come home and now she is 9 lbs. but still in newborn clothes. Little Miss Freya Fallyn is the joy of our lives.

Take a step back, take a deep breath, and look at your baby. Look at the people you have to support you: family, nurses, and doctors. Look at the technology you may not understand. All those things are there for you and your baby. You are not alone, you are not helpless, and you both survived something terrifying. Take a moment every day to see who and what is around you and know you and your baby are in healing hands.”

A Note From Karina:
 “After hearing Freya's story and all that she had been through. I was blessed to be able to captivate her little smile. She looked healthy and was very alert. By the way she was posing for me you would've though she had done this before ;)

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