Amazing Twins! 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 gave birth to my set of twins on 3/8/14 by c section due to twin A being breeched. I went into the hospital that morning not being able to breath. My blood pressure was high and they then told me I had pre-eclamcia. I was 35 weeks when I delivered. I had a girl and a boy. My little girl (Arie) weighed 4lbs 9ozs and my little boy (Tristin) weighed 5lbs 7ozs.

After they took the babies out they went straight to the NICU and I got put to sleep for an emergency exploratory surgery due to my intestines being pushed into my uterus from the scar tissue from previous surgeries. So I didn't get to experience the first 6 days of my babies stay in the NICU. Once I got out of ICU, myself, and was able to visit them they were doing good but were not eating on their own so they both were being fed with the feeding tubes. Tristin stayed in for 2 weeks and Arie was in there for 3 weeks.”

A Note From Megan:
"Our session was wonderful! Tristin and Arie are just adorable! This was my first time photographing two babies that age and they did great. I just adore their curly hair and sweet personalities! It's always so awesome to see these NICU graduates so healthy and happy. The whole family was a pleasure to work with and I wish them well in the future!"

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