Super Trio! 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.

“I have bgg triplets born at 35weeks.
Keegan James 4lbs14oz
Khloe Marie 5lbs10oz
Kora Lizbeth 5lbs12oz
Their delivery was a scheduled C-section that went smoothly!

My oldest was a twin and spent time in the NICU so I knew what expect this time around with the triplets. Although, I wasn’t prepared to have two in the NICU and one in the ICN (intensive care nursery). My boy didn't require the special care the girls did, which was a blessing since he was the smallest of the three, but it did make it difficult to spend equal time with them.

My trio were super preemies! They were only in the NICU/ICN for 7 and 8 days! I'd just been released, after requiring another night stay for a blood transfusion after my delivery, when I got the call that Keegan was ready to come home. Unfortunately, we didn't get to come home on the planned day, because I was readmitted for postnatal eclampsia. But another 24hrs later and my girls had shown significant signs of readiness. So upon my release, I brought my son home with me, then returned for the girls the next day! Since then it's been a crazy ride, but well worth it!”

Emma’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Tara Giles.
A Note From Tara:

“So much adorableness!! I had a lot of fun with these little ones, watching as each of their personalities came out individually. Getting 3 little movers to stay in one place, and look at the camera at the same time, brought out a lot of laughs! I was so happy to capture a beautiful family photo of the babies with their mom and older sister. So sweet!”

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 sherri@preemieprints.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. 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 Olympia, WA.

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