Ava'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.

"Ava was born at home, after the hospital sent me home. She was 28 weeks gestation weighing 2 pounds 10 ounces. She is the most amazing, strong, little person I have ever met and I can't believe she is all mine."

Ava’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Jenny Parson Owen.

A Note From Jenny:
“Ava is so precious! She was asleep the entire time except for a seconds when she opened her eyes, as if to check to see if we were done taking her picture, then off to dreamland she returned. This family is so loving, kind, and sweet. I'm so glad they were able to tough it out on such a hot and humid day to capture these memories for their family. Ava seemed to enjoy laying in my superhero basket. It was so fitting for her session as she's a tiny superhero in her own rights. Not only does she have a mom and dad who love her so very much, she is also blessed with a big sister and big brother whose love for her is apparent. It was a pleasure photographing little Miss Ava and her beautiful family! I look forward to working with them again in the future.”

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 McMinnville, TN.

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