Jaxson's Preemie Prints 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.

“Jaxson Lee was born at 24 weeks 6 days. He was 1 lb 8 oz that day and only 13 inches. He is up to 2 lb 2 oz and managed to trade in his ventilator for a cpap!! He still has a long way to go, but he is feisty as his nurses have called him since day one.

When Jaxson was born we were very scared he wouldn't breathe being so early. He was ventilated very quickly that day and at only 1 lb 8 oz very tiny. His skin was cherry red and thin. He has now made it to 1 month and to the cpap with which he is doing very well. We finally even got to hear cries yesterday which were more like squeaks. Everyday is a blessing with him and everyday is a constant worry, but he is a feisty little boy and continues to amaze us with his progress. So hopefully with many prayers and blessings he will come home soon!!”

A Note From Denise:

“I was able to meet Jaxson & his mom on their 136th day in the NICU.  He has been quite the little fighter & has overcome many obstacles during their NICU journey.  Despite the challenges they have faced, Jaxson's mom has a great attitude & is looking forward to taking her sweet baby home! He is a night owl, so he slept through most of the session, but we did get a couple of shots with his bright eyes open!”

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 Chattanooga, TN.

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