Anna'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.


“This is the second late term preemie I've had. My son was born at 34 weeks 6 days gestation and now my daughter was born at 34 weeks 5 days gestation. Both weighed 5 lbs 7 oz and were 20 inches long. Both have been on the NICU. As of now my daughter is still in. Don't be discouraged if you have a preemie. The NICU is an amazing place to be. Although it is hard, it is nice knowing that your baby is being taken care of and will be in the best place to thrive when going home.”

A Note From Angela:
“I think this session went pretty well. Mom expected the baby to be sleeping but she had other plans for a little while. She ate a little and was in and out of sleep but we still got some really cute shots out of it. I enjoyed photographing this sweet little girl. She is just the most precious angel. The parents were very friendly. They were very warm and inviting and that made my nervousness disappear. I wished I could have gotten more shots, cuter poses but I think what we have are pretty good. They have a little boy and he was the cutest thing, and obviously loved his new baby sister.”

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.
