We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints will help families heal and remember how strong they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.
A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM JAMES & VICTORIA'S FAMILY
Our NICU was amazing. All of the NICU nurses were the absolute best you could not ask for anyone better. Our time there was scary but very hopeful. I spent many days crying in my babies room only to receive comfort and love from our NICU doctors and nurses, and reassurance that our babies were doing well and getting better and bigger.
James & Victoria's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Brian C. Parks.
A Note From Brian:
James and Victoria were champs. The morning was supposed to be overcast and cool, but when the day came there was nary a cloud in the sky. Struggling to find shady spots in the garden area behind the George Bush Presidential Library, the twins were super troopers, going through four changes of clothes in what must have been at least ninety-plus degree weather.
It was a fun challenge working to get both of them to pay attention at the same time, as what worked on my kiddo didn't seem to have much luck with the other! Needless to say, some Photoshop work will be involved! ; ) But they held on through it all and at the end of the shoot, I knew we had some great shots to take home.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 600 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.
