About Ryan:

"I am a photographer in Southern California and as long as I have considered doing photography, I have wanted to explore the opportunity to volunteer some of my time for families who have children in the NICU. These families are close to my heart because my youngest son was unexpectedly admitted to the NICU after his birth in 2012. He is a healthy, happy child today but that experience has become such a part of our story as a family as it is with any family who find their child in the NICU. I would truly love the opportunity to help these families capture their sweet ones as their time in the NICU is a part of their story."
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.
