About Heather:

“I am a mother to one very courageous and spunky little girl, Autumn, who was born at 35 weeks and spent some time in the NICU. I was also born premature and spent the first week of my life in the NICU. When I saw the opportunity to volunteer with Preemie Prints, I knew that it was the right choice for me. My passion for photography stems from wanting to capturing memories for others, images that will last a lifetime.”
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.
