Gemma and Reagan!

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.
My twin girls were born prematurely after my water spontaneously broke at 31 weeks 3 days. My labor had otherwise been uneventful. The babies had the usual NICU course for babies born at their gestation: brief intubation for surfactant, respiratory support (CPAP and high flow oxygen), caffeine for apnea, and gradual feedings. We were fortunate not to have any significant complications. I truly believe that NICU parents are chosen by a higher power to parent the most fragile babies. While at first it may seem like a tragedy, I hope that every mom and dad can eventually realize the blessing of being chosen to be their baby's parent!"

Gemma and Reagan’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer Jennifer Sternal-Johnson.

A Note From Jen

These gorgeous girls were born at 31 weeks, and just recently celebrated their due date! I loved our time spent together and wish them all the best!

Photos belong to our volunteer photographers, families,

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 or NICU 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.
