Jude'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.

“Jude Kristian was born at 32 weeks gestation. He weighed 3lbs 12oz. I (Leah) was diagnosed with Placenta Percreta at 26 weeks and was life-flighted from College Station to Texas Children's Pavilion for Women at 27 weeks due to bleeding. The bleeding stopped and I stayed on bed rest in Houston until Nov. 7th when I began to bleed again. That is when they decided to do the C-section/hysterectomy. Jude was born and taken to the NICU where he slept for 24 hours due to the general anesthesia, but once he woke up he was labeled a feeder/grower preemie. At 35 weeks we were able to transfer him to The Med in College Station where we live.

Jude is our second preemie. Jude's big brother Kier was born at 33 weeks in March of 2013. Preemie babies are fighters! The NICU nurses and doctors are amazing. We are so thankful for their knowledge and care in helping these little miracles grow!”

A Note From Christina:

“I had the absolute best time with Jude and this family! Jude was one of the happiest babies I have ever met. The entire photoshoot was all smiles and laughs! I truly had a blast taking pictures with them.”

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.
