About Beth:
"On May 7th, 2011, I received the scariest text message of my life 'He's coming now!'. It was from my brother in law. My sister had been on hospital bed rest for almost 2 weeks at that point she was only 25 weeks pregnant. All of the interventions and medications they were trying were no longer working to stop her contractions. They were actually beginning to have very negative effects on her. Jackson Peter was born at 25 weeks gestation weighing 1 pound 15 ounces. That little boy just turned 5 and is going to grow up to do amazing things."
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 500 NICU family sessions.
