Alex'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.


My son Luis Alexander was born Preemie at 29 weeks on 3/23/14, weighing 2 lbs 1 oz.

I developed preeclampsia and had a placental abruption.
We call him Alex.

The doctors said he didn’t have much of a chance to live and gave us a 20% of a chance of life. He had a congenital heart defect just like me.

We are very strong believers. So we put our faith into action. And today Alex is 6 months old.

Alex is our miracle baby!

He is doing amazing!!!!!!!!!

67 days in the NICU. Hardest times of our lives...... There were hard days, and some good days... I love NICU nurses, they are always going to be a huge part of my heart; they hugged me when I needed it, and they were the instruments of perfect healing for my baby!!!!”

A Note From Cassandra:
"I was finally able to meet up with little Alex (We won’t be able to say that for much longer) who is officially 8 months old but technically only 5 months old and he was quite the charmer!  Alex and his parents are such easy going, laid back parents (after time in NICU not sure how this could be!) and while he was the sweetest thing he only gave smiles up for Daddy!  I am confident that Alex is meant for great things based on all he and his parents have endured!"

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