Twins! A Preemie Prints NICU Grad Photo Shoot

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 was on bed rest at the hospital for 6.5 weeks prior to delivery. The babies came at 34 weeks. This is my second set of twins in under a year. My daughter had a lot of trouble breathing and eating. She even had to come home on a monitor. She was there for 27 days. Her brother had trouble with eating and controlling his temperature. He was there 9 days.

Just remember they are ok where they are. Sometimes you need a break to rest. If you’re not well you cannot take care of your babies. Also it's totally ok to cry. I cried coming and going from the NICU."
"You are NEVER alone in this journey."

Abigail & Everett’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Kalyn Price.

A Note From Kalyn:

“These babies were very spunky and energetic! They loved the cake and loved the bath after even more! Mom had had two set's of twins with in two years (this is the second set! Everett was scheduled to have surgery the day after our shoot and mom said that it helped her handle the stress a little better having something fun to go do the day before. They were really lovely to work with.”

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!

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Anchorage, AK

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