Nathaniel's NICU 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 baby's name is Nathaniel he was born 12/29/15 at 32wks 6days weighing 4lbs 3.7oz

This is my second preemie. My first came at 34wks. So far my little Nate doesn't have any major issues and seems to be adapting well. Hopefully his stay in the NICU won't be a long one. The nurses have all been very nice and are taking good care of him. The hardest part is not having him 24/7. I want to be woke up all night because he needs stuff and I don't have that but as long as he needs the help I would rather him be there.”

A Note From Angela:

“I have known Jessica since she was 7 years old. I watched her grow into a teenager when I lost contact with her mom. It's crazy to see how much she has grown and I am amazed to see her as a mother now. Jessica and Tim are amazing parents. It is pretty evident that they love this little guy unconditionally. Nate has done so well since he was born, gaining weight like a champ and coming off the oxygen so quickly. The session went really well and Nate was very cooperative. I am very happy with how this session turned out.”

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 Fenton, MO,

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