Baby Sophia's 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.

“Sophia Marie born at 30 weeks weighing 2lbs 4oz 13.25 inches long. I was sent to the hospital for high blood pressure and within 12 hours of arriving she was delivered via emergency c section. My blood platelets had dripped and my liver was failing. It was a very traumatic 24 hours

I was really nervous to walk the preemie journey. The best advise I got was trust your instinct and be open with those caring for your baby. You are there biggest advocate during this scary time. Chin up and know this journey will end!”

A Note From Kara:
"Today was my first volunteer Preemie Prints session. I had so much fun with little Sophia. She is such a beautiful, happy baby. I instantly fell in love with her adorable, bright blue eyes. Her photos turned out so very beautiful."

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 Modesto, CA.

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