Javier'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.

“Our Javier was in the NICU for a month.. He Had to learn how to drink from a bottle, was on a feeding tube, and in an Incubator. He was only 3lb 11oz at birth. We had never experienced having our baby in a NICU before. This was our first time. We were both so scared but then again we were learning how to take care of our baby in a whole new way. It was one of the hardest things we would  experience as a family. But the NICU team did everything that they could to make our experience as easy and comforting as possible. So I would like to say to all the NICU families out there, don't lose hope. Your Journey will soon be over.”

 “Never give up”

Javier’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Kara Chavez.

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 graduate photography session that took place near Lake Elsinore, CA.

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