About Rita:
“As a mother of three, I'm constantly in awe of how many everyday moments with our children are so precious. For me, photography is a way to forever freeze those subtle, fleeting moments, be it a tiny hand stifling a yawn or the placid expression of a newborn lost in dream, so that they can be cherished again and again. I like to take pictures of my own life as it unfolds. My approach to photographing newborns is similar. I try to visually tell a spontaneous story of the subject in that particular moment in time using natural light, subtle backgrounds and textures, and props to enhance, rather than overwhelm the subject. To make sure that I can capture those precious, authentic moments, both big and small, visible and and not so visible, I use the following equipment: Nikon D810”
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 500 NICU family sessions.
