Quiana's 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.

“Baby Quiana was born on March 27th of this year at 26 weeks of pregnancy and only weighing 1 pound 11 ounces and 14 inches long. Jaquelin's water broke at 25 weeks in Oakley, KS and was life flighted to Witchita. She was there a week then delivered precious little Quiana.

Quiana has been such a miracle and a blessing to our whole family; we pray every day to God to give her strength and health. And as it seems our prayers are being heard, the NICU nurses have told us how Quiana seems a little mischievous with them. She gets grumpy and make little grunts and try's to kick hold and pull at everything.”

A Note From Mae:

“Today I walked into the hospital expecting to see this 2 pound baby hooked up to alot of tubes in an incubator not being able to be touched. To my surprise mommy is cuddling and rocking her baby girl. Quiana was born at 26 weeks and 1 pound 11 ounces. A month later she has gained a pound. Baby "Q" is already a diva. Peeking at me, posing when she wanted to. It amazes me at this size what a personality she has. This miracle is going to bless her family with lots of joy.”

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 sherri@preemieprints.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. 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 Wichita, KS.

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