Sophia's Preemie Prints NICU 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 daughter is Sofia Lexiana born at 28 weeks on October 1st 2014. We have been in Children’s Hospital since birth. I delivered here due to the rare tumor Sofia had, SCT Teratoma (Sacroccoccygeal Teratoma). She only had a 50% chance to live and she came out and did so well growing and eating, but on Nov 2, 2014, we got news the tumor was back and it wasn't suppose to come back. So she will be having surgery on the 5th of Nov and they will also be putting in a IV line of chemo treatment. It has been a total roller coaster, but without all the wonderful NICU nurses or care team and family support ,I don't know how we would  have got this far. I hope that all babies and families make it home safe and healthy long lives. I know it will feel like days are so long and weeks are even longer, but just know they are in the NICU getting the best care ever.”

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