Little Eliza'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.

“Our little Eliza arrived at 11:20 pm on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 34 weeks and 6 days. She was 6lbs 4 oz at birth and 20 inches long.
Miss Eliza was very sleepy and did not want to nurse or take a bottle for quite a few hours after birth. She was taken to the NICU after a short hour of bonding for overnight, and then once she started taking supplement bottles and practiced nursing, she graduated to "rooming in" with me for the next three days as she worked hard to keep her blood sugar, weight, and bilirubin stable. She came home with us at 35 weeks and 2 days gestational age; we closely monitor her weight every four or so days. She is almost three weeks old and just barely back up to birth weight after experimenting with several supplemental formulas and nursing every three hours round the clock.”

A Note From Christina:

“The photo shoot was a lot of fun! We went to George Bush Library and got to try out a bunch of different settings! Eliza was so cute, and her siblings were very energetic. I am so blessed to be able to share my photography with this family.”

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 Bryan, TX.

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