"I am a self taught photographer that started on her journey in 2010. I started taking photography seriously after my daughter was born in 2013. My daughter was 12 weeks early and spent 2 months in the NICU. She is now a happy, active 2 year old. As a former NICU parent I understand the value of having images that include the whole family during the NICU stay. Unfortunately for my family I didn't know about this service and all we have are cell phone images of our daughter's time in the NICU. For that reason, I want to give what I did not get to other families."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 500 NICU family sessions.
