Meet Ellery! A 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.

“We were very lucky that Ellery just had to continue to grow while in the NICU. She was on room air for a while but finally out grew that. She did come home on an apnea monitor and was taken off after two months. She was in the NICU for 97 days.

It's a rough journey, with ups and downs. We celebrated every little milestone. Three months is a long time; I was there every day. Then that wonderful day came and we brought home our amazing little girl Ellery. It may seem like that day will never come but oh what a joyous day it was.”

Ellery’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Cassandra Chang.

A Note From Cassandra:
"I had the pleasure of meeting Ellery and her sweet family for their "Graduation" session. Ellery came early at 27 weeks weighing a whopping 2 pounds! This little lady reserved smiles for her big sis and you could tell they will have a special bond as they grow."

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 Oviedo, FL.

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