Lovable Leo's NICU Grad Photo Session

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 was very blessed to have my son, Leondro, on Easter Sunday. I tried for years to get pregnant when Leo came into our lives. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and had to take extra care of ourselves while I was pregnant. The doctors decided I had to get induced because I was taking medication. At first his heart kept dropping with the induction meds they gave me so they tried something else the next day and after what seemed like forever, he finally arrived. From the very start Leo had to get his sugar tested and it remained low. They sent him over to the NICU and kept a close eye on him. He then wasn't able to breath and had to provided him with oxygen a few times. After a few weeks they sent my baby home with a monitor. 3 months later my baby boy is healthier than ever.

I am so blessed to have had a wonderful and experienced team taking care of my son. They taught me so much and made it so much easier taking my son home for the first time. I am also very appreciative of the Ronald McDonald House. They provided a place where my son was literally only a few feet away from us; they gave me a chance to be there by my son’s side through it all.”

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