“I have had a pull on my heart from photography as long as I can remember... I professionally transitioned from a corporate video producer into freelance photography, then later on to opening my own business following a trip abroad to Egypt 2006. During that trip I quickly realized what I thought was going to be a walk through history became a eye opening experience to the hardships so many beautiful faces endure. The grace seen in people eyes no matter the situation joyful or tearful throughout life's events is moving and timeless. I feel blessed to share this skill, from that point forward I dedicated a portion of myself to volunteer service; even if the only thing I had to offer was capturing a smile.”
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.
