Joshua's NICU 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.


“He came a little too early. The doctors tried everything to keep him in, but he was ready to see the world. After an emergency cerclage was put in, bed rest, and attempts to stop labor, he was born at 23 weeks and 3 days. We are still on this journey through the NICU; hopefully, he will be discharged on his due date.”

Joshua’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Ashley Parker.

A Note From Ashley:
“This past Sunday I was able to photograph sweet Baby Joshua in the NICU. I had such a wonderful time with my first Preemie Prints shoot! The mom was SO excited about their session! Baby Joshua turned 2 months old just last week and weighs 3lbs! My favorite part of the session was being able to bless this sweet mom with photos of her little guy! I loved hearing her story and all about Joshua! I left there feeling so blessed and thankful that I could share my talent with them and give back! I look forward to hopefully working with this family again in the future!”

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 photography session that took place near Roanoke, VA.

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