Alice's Preemie Prints 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.

“Alice Elizabeth joined our family on May 16th, 2015 6 weeks early. She was 4 pounds 8 ounces. Due to preeclampsia she had to be evicted from her cozy home early. Mommy and daddy spent about a week in the hospital before meeting our princess. Because I was on magnesium during delivery, I was not able to hold or see Alice for 24 hours. It was the longest day of my life.

Our NICU stay was incredible. Even after I was discharged, I felt confident that this was the best place for my beautiful baby. The nurses were fantastic and taught me what to do while I was there so I could come and go as I pleased and take care of my baby on my own. They helped and supported me in my breastfeeding journey and I got to kangaroo everyday she was there.”

A Note From Kate:

“Alice was wide awake and ready to play for her session! No problem - it just meant we got more shots with those big, beautiful eyes!! What a beautiful 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 500 NICU family sessions. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Waukesha, WI.

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