Norah'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.

“My daughter Norah was born 11 weeks early at 29 week's and 5 days. When she was born she weighed 3lb 8oz. Due to an infection, I was very sick and so was she. Her weight dropped down to 2lb 10oz and I actually had to ask the doctor "do you think she will make it?" At that time, nobody could say for sure. At 1 month old, she weighs 4lb 7oz and I stay here at the NICU with her 6/7 days of the week. I love photography and I have a scrapbook started.

My daughter is doing so great in such a short time. Cardinal Glennon is amazing.”

Norah is now 4 months old.

A Note From Angela:

“The session went well for the most part, Norah didn't want to sleep and was a little fussy without her pacifier, but I got several good pictures. I absolutely loved working with this sweet angel. She was a very happy baby for the most part, I connected well with mom since I was a mom at 18 as well. I loved seeing how much mom and dad really love this little girl. The only thing I wished would have been different was getting her to sleep. I tried the magic touch, between the eyes, and it almost worked until she heard dad talking.”

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 St. Louis, MO.

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