Meet Rae

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.

I had pre-eclampsia, so Rae had to come out at 29 weeks. She was known around the NICU as the ʺeasy baby,ʺ because all of the nurses would comment on what a good, strong, healthy baby she is. She was very easy to care for, and the NICU nurses loved her. She never had any setbacks; she was off oxygen quickly, she never had apnea episodes, no jaundice, nothing. She came home much sooner than we anticipated, which was incredible. Now she's home and doing great!

Rae’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Andrea Bacle.

A Note From Andrea:

This little ray of sunshine was not camera shy! She took one look at me and smiled at the camera from start to finish. Her parents asked for a graduation shoot, and I’m so glad they did. This light, this smile? Perfect timing…just like your little one. Thank you for a wonderful session.

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 Spring, TX.

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