Little Michael'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.

“Michael was born on October 8 at just 29 weeks. He was nice and snug in there, but he came out to save his mommy. I unexpectedly needed heart valve replacement surgery. Doctors tried to clip the valve temporarily to prolong pregnancy but the procedure was unsuccessful. Michael was born the next day and then valve surgery the day after. He was born 2 lbs 12 oz. he has been a fighter ever since and left the NICU at 6 weeks.
We felt that Michael was in the best place he could be! It broke our hearts to leave him each night, but knew he was in the best care.”

A Note From Sarah:

“It was such a pleasure to meet this adorable little boy. For a guy who started out so tiny, he's positively chunky now - in the best possible way! He and his mother have been through so much together since his birth. Meeting his family was an honor, they were so welcoming and full of love. I am certain he'll continue to thrive at home in such a positive environment!”

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 Drexel Hill, PA.

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