"I am passionate about capturing the beauty and diversity of the world around me and particularly about telling the stories of the people I encounter. I am recently retired from over 40 years of nursing, much of which was as a NICU nurse and most recently (20 years) as a Certified Nurse Midwife serving a broad practice of patients. I believe in the importance of providing professional quality photographs for these families that may not otherwise receive them because of the circumstances of their child's early life experience."
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 500 NICU family sessions.
