Beckham's 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.

“We were first admitted for respiratory issues. Beckham was on CPAP for 24 hours then nose tube air for a few days. After a couple days in the NICU he spiked a temp. The doctor recommended a spinal tap. Once they were doing the spinal temp he stopped breathing and had to be revived! They instantly started rounds of antibiotics and placed a PICC line. Once lab results came back it Turns out our poor little man had viral meningitis. We stayed for another week and a half so beck could regain his strength and also deal with feeding issues.”

Beckham’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Katie.

A Note From Katie:
The six month portrait session for the Gans family occurred on a beautiful evening at Ault Park in Cincinnati, OH. The Gans family was so sweet and NICU graduate Beckham was such an adorable six month! His big blue eyes and curiosity were fun to photograph! I really enjoyed spending time and getting to know the Gans family. We worked together to make sure the children were happy and smiling for the portraits. The Gans family will now have beautiful family portraits that they will be able to treasure for the rest of their lives.”

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 sherri@preemieprints.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 500 NICU family sessions. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Cincinnati, OH.

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