Conner'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.

"Conner was born on 9-10-14. He was 21.5 inches long and 10 pounds 6 ounces. His entrance into the world was pretty traumatic. He had shoulder dystocia.

I had Conner on Wednesday and we were not discharged until Sunday evening. It was a very scary situation to not be able to hold our little boy after giving birth to him. His right arm still does not move but we are doing physical therapy for his arm and have received good news from the Cardiologist for the two holes he has in his heart. We are taking it a day at a time; enjoying our precious little angel.”

A Note From Mellissa:
“Connor is an absolute cutie pie.  It was a nice sunny day, but it was WINDY, so it made it sort of cool out. We met up at the George Bush Presidential Library, which is an amazing place to take photographs. There is the grassy areas, statues, buildings, and a beautiful garden and pond area with Texas A&M not far in the background. Although we were faced with a few complications, I think we came out with some great shots. It was great meeting Mr. Connor, his mommy Danielle, and his aunt. I hope they had just as much fun and enjoy the photos.”

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 Bryan, TX.

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