Owen'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.

“Brian and I are the proud parents of a CHD baby that was born on Monday October 5th at 9:59 pm. We found out at 20 weeks that he had a congenital heart defect and that he would need heart surgery after birth to correct it. We named him Owen Brandon (Brandon was my maiden name). He was born at 39 weeks weighing in at 9 lbs 4 oz and 21 inches long!
A friend of mine, Ashley Faircloth, suggested that I contact you in regards to my little boy.

Our oldest ended up in the NICU for seven days after he was first born and we actually never got hospital pictures taken. To some this may seem like no big deal, but now being a NICU mom to two babies this is quite upsetting.”

A Note From Ashley:

“Owen has CHD and had heart surgery soon after his birth.  His scans after surgery showed great results and he goes back next week for another checkup!”

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 Round Lake Beach, WI.

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