NICU Grad Session: Wyatt

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. 


Wyatt was born early at 34 weeks 5 days and admitted into the NICU for breathing/lung issues. Wyatt is now perfectly healthy! (:


Wyatt's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Brian C. Parks.

A Note From Brian:

When Wyatt's mom suggested shooting out on a baseball field, I thought "Sure! What could go wrong with that?" Little did I know that less than 15 seconds into the shoot, the little tyke had a mouthful of orange gravel! It was a bit of a process, but mom and dad were able to keep Wyatt's little hands out of the dirt long enough to get some great shots.

Then it was on to the smash cake! Wyatt took to the cake like a pro right off the bat and hardly gave me time to get a shot of the cake by itself before diving in! He tore the whole thing apart in about five minutes time (though I still think he liked the gravel better). ; )

Photos belong to our volunteer photographers, families, and organization – please do not use for any purpose.

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. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Bryan/College Station. 

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