Zackary'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.

“Zackary was born August 3rd. I was 33 weeks and 5 days. He was 2 pounds 12 ounces and 15 ½ inches long and spent 4 weeks in the NICU.

Zack being in the NICU wasn’t easy for us. We also have a baby boy who is almost 2, so he wasn’t allowed in to see/meet his baby brother. At first Zack had to be on Cpap, but only for a week or so. Their main concern for him was to gain weight. We are now at 4 pounds 1 ounce. We stayed at the Ronal McDonald House while we could, but my husband had to go back to work so we ended up driving 72 miles both directions everyday.”

A Note From Jenny:
“This was my very first Preemie Print session. I enjoyed meeting him and his family.
He's such a precious little guy but don't let that fool you! He's packing one very big attitude. This little guy may take on the world someday!
I think he was giving me his best rock star poses. He wasn't very fond of having his pictures taken but we managed to get some
wonderful memories for his mom and dad to cherish forever. Zack has an incredible big brother that loves him very much too.

Thank you, Preemie Prints, for allowing me the opportunity to capture such precious memories.”

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 McMinnville, TN

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