Meet Jase

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.

Jase entered into this world early. I went into Preterm Labor at 32 weeks but we were able to maintain the pregnancy until I developed preeclampsia at 33 weeks. He was born weighing 3 1/2 lbs and was 16ʺ long.

We spent 17 days in the NICU just learning how to eat and maintain his body temperature. He was dubbed a ʺfeed and growʺ. All of his lab work came back normal, however he was on antibiotics for 10 days as a precautionary measure.  Jase never had a problem breathing, never needed oxygen or CPAP. The biggest interventions he had were the IV, the feeding tube, and the bililights for jaundice for a few days.

Jase’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Jessica Castillo from JC Images.

A Note From Jessica:
Here is a sneak peek for the Hayden Family. The mother and I talked and she wanted to wait till her new baby was born to do the session, she had some complications since her birth to her preemie Jase. So here is sneak of Jase Hayden. He just turned one year old. 

Photos belong to our volunteer photographers, families, 
and organization please do not use for any purpose. 

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 Waco, TX.

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