Willow, Harper, and Deacon: Triplets!!!

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 wife was inpatient at Strong for nearly a month prior to giving birth due to severe preeclampsia. On the morning of June 7, just 4 hours into our 30th week she gave birth to our triplets - who were all born in the same minute - 4:54am. The two girls were 3lbs 2 oz each and our little boy was 1lbs 12oz. He has been home for roughly 2 weeks. The girls spent 49 days in the NICU & Deacon spent 62 days. It was a difficult journey but walking out of the hospital watching out babies take their first breath of fresh air was one of the greatest moments of both of our lives."

Willow, Harper, and Deacon's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Jennifer Sternal-Johnson.

A Note From Jen:
Triplets! Born at 30 weeks, Harper and Willow stayed in the NICU for 49 days, and Deacon joined them at home after 62 days. These kiddos are so gorgeous--and I cannot imagine the chaos in their home (they had just moved in two weeks prior to our session!). Loved working with these cuties and moms Katie and Marcia.

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.
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.
