Cassidy'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.

“I was diagnosed with placenta accreta at 32 weeks at 33 weeks found it was a percreta with a bladder invasion (basically a rare case where the placenta grew through the uterus and attached itself to my bladder). I was under general anesthesia and underwent an invasive 3 hour surgery. While she was being cared for in the NICU. We are both blessed to be accreta survivors.”

Cassidy's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Jen Sternal-Johnson.

A Note From Jen:

“Cassidy was born at 34 weeks, after her mama was diagnosed with Placenta Percreta (where the placenta grows through the uterus and into another organ, like the bladder). She spent 12 days in the NICU before joining her family at home. We had such a blast playing with the girly-girl accessories before big sister Hennessey woke up and joined the fun.  Cassidy was 1 day old(corrected) when these photos were taken.”

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 Rochester, NY.

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