“Photography has always been a passion of mine. Capturing one single, unforgettable moment and freezing it in time is what inspires me to look at ordinary intricacies of life and make them extraordinary. While I’ve loved photography for a long time, there is undeniably one event (actually three) that sparked my desire to take this passion one step further; that event is the birth of my three granddaughters. It was amazing to watch them grow, learn and flourish. I have documented their life from their first cries, first yawns, first pouts and first giggles. The pictures have now become their story through my eyes.
The first moments-first days-of a newborn’s life are fascinating, captivating, and miraculous. Detailing those moments and making them extraordinary treasures is what I strive to accomplish. I am honored to have the opportunity to be part of Preemie Prints and collaborate with the families to create these precious memories.”
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 email@example.com and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions.
