Edwin'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.

“Edwin was born at 28 weeks he weigh 1349 grams. He was born on 1/6/15 at Scott and White.

I had an emergency C-section. It was hard for me because I got to hold him for a few minutes before they transferred him to Temple. I went into depression because I would see him two days a week after they transferred him back to College Station. But me and my boyfriend had faith that everything was going to be ok with him and it did At first its hard because you don’t get to take your baby home and you get worried about what if something happens to him, but the nurses and doctors are checking up on him. He got discharged on March 8 2015. I was and still am excited that I can finally have him home with me and my family.”

A Note From Sloane:

“Edwin was a trooper during our photo shoot! He is such a little cowboy and looked so cute in his hat! You can tell that he is the apple of his mommy and daddy's eyes!”

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.
