Lovable Levi'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.

“My son Levi was born 8/17/14 at 28 weeks. He weighed 2 lbs 14.9 oz. He is such a sweet baby and has been fighting from the beginning. He is my super hero.

When my son was born I felt an extreme disconnect; that wasn’t my son. My son was suppose to be healthy and inside me. Instead I was looking at this foreign being with tubes coming from every part of him. I was mad, confused, and numb. It’s okay to be mad. This isn’t fair. You didn’t get the typical labor experience. But I can promise any NICU family this - As you watch your baby grow and grow there is no way anyway can deny that there is a God. You see your baby struggle and conquer and he/she builds you. Your baby will make you wanna be strong. You will get through this. And you will be a stronger person because of it.”

A Note From Christina:

“Baby Levi's photo shoot went really well! The parents had a really good idea of what they wanted, and Levi was such a champ! It took about an hour and 15 minutes to take all the pictures that I wanted and that the parents wanted but I am very happy with the results.  I had such a tough time picking my favorite 5 for the sneak peaks.”

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 College Station, TX.

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