About Melissa:
“Hello! My name is Melissa Kirk and I am primarily a portrait and family photographer. I believe every little bit of life is worth celebrating — from the everyday to the extraordinary. I love to capture real moments between you and your family so that they can be celebrated for a lifetime, images that will tug at your heart, to bring tears to your eyes and reflect how beautiful and wonderful your family is. I have been interested in photography since I was a child, and have photographed professionally for the past 4 years. Volunteering for children, especially preemies, will be extremely rewarding for me in a personal sense, and for the families I can help. With two young sons myself, I understand the importance of capturing moments that you soon forget.”
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.
