Meet Lukas! A Preemie Prints NICU Grad Photo Session

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 sons name Is Lukas.. He was born April 14 2015 weighing 7 lbs and was 20 1/2 in long.

I was induced at 9pm Sunday night. My doctor came and broke my water Monday morning around 7 and I was given an epidural at 2 cm. I stayed in labor for 24 hours after my water was broke and finally had my son at 8:14 am Monday morning. When he entered the world everything got so quiet. My son didn't cry and my heart sank. I got to spend about an hour and a half with him and then he was taken to the nursery. About 2 hours later I found out he was in the NICU. My son had some respiratory problems and I was not able to hold him until the next day. He was in the NICU for almost his first week of life.”

A Note From Ashley:

“Lukas and his beautiful blue eyes were such a joy to photograph! At almost 4 months old, he was so sweet and smiley for his Mommy and Daddy. It was a pleasure to meet this family and capture these precious moments!”

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.
