Sweet LeighAnn's Preemie Prints 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.

“Our girl was born at 31 weeks because of me having severe preeclampsia and HELLPs. She spent 7 weeks in the NICU, she was born 2lbs 13oz 14 inches long. CPAPs machine, jaundice, A&B episodes etc. She would of been home a week sooner if she didn't have an episode the day we were suppose to room in. My husband and I were strong and held it in until that happened. They found out it was reflux. The flap that’s suppose to keep the food down hasn't grown in yet so she has to stay elevated when she sleeps. If that’s what we have to do, I consider that a blessing!
When you feel you don't have strength anymore to go in the NICU and sit there and listen to the machines...remember that baby is a fighter! Look for your strength in your faith and in your little one. That is what helped me so much! “

LeighAnn’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Andrea Bacle.

A Note From Andrea:

“This little peanut had her graduation session at 4 months old. It was a hot and humid and sticky morning in Old Town Spring, but as you can see, she was just as happy as could be. And if it isn’t very obvious, this Momma and Daddy are head-over-heels in love with this little one.”

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 Spring, TX.

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