Sweet Cairo'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's name is Cairo Aljuwani. He was born April 22nd, 2014 at 31weeks. His original due date was June18th. He was born 2lbs and 15oz. He was diagnosed with a Centro nuclear muscle disorder called Myotublar Myopathy. He was born very hypotonic (floppy, weak muscles) he currently weighs 9lbs 3 oz. and he will be 4 months August 22nd. He has undergone 3 surgeries so far and has a tracheostomy and a gastrostomy tube placed.

These 4 months have truly been a roller coaster ride. Life in the NICU really is something that no one can ever prepare a parent for they have to go through the experience to know what it feels like to have their child fighting for their life day in and day out. I would just encourage parents/grandparents to not lose hope and keep pushing forward because there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Special parents are blessed with special babies!"                     #ProudPreemieParent

A Note From Liz:

“Cairo was such a sweet little guy! He gave his mom his mom the most smiles, and you could see the love they had for each other. He would light up whenever he saw her. :)”

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 Buffalo, NY.

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