Jarrett's NICU Grad Photo Shoot

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.

“Our little baby boy Jarrett was born on August 6th at 1:14pm at College Station Medical Center. He weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces and was 20 inches long. On his second day in the hospital he started breathing rapidly and he was observed and tests were run. He had an upper respiratory infection and pneumothorax air bubble outside of his lung. He was admitted to the NICU on Aug 7th.

This delivery of our 3rd child did not go as we had hoped and planned, but we have been so thankful for the NICU nurses and doctors who have loved on our little boy and provided us great encouragement. The first night he was admitted was a whirlwind and unexpected. We were scared and overwhelmed as we processed what was happening. But as we have seen our little Jarrett improve each day and start to breath on his own, we are so grateful for his life and the support we have had alongside us during this time. Life is precious and we are excited to get to take him home soon!”

UPDATE: Jarrett has been discharged from the NICU and is a happy and healthy little boy.

A Note From Brian:

“Here are the sneak peaks from Jarrett shoot last Monday evening. I had forgotten how much of challenge it is to shoot a 4-month-old when all they can do is lay there! Luckily, Amanda and Trouper had some good setups for Jarrett, a variety of outfits and blankets, and a beautiful Christmas tree for a backdrop. It was pretty cute to watch them try to wrangle up their other two kids, who alternated between “helping” with the shoot to straight-up photobombing. Luckily, everyone was in pretty high spirits, despite Jarrett waking up right after I got there! : )”

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 400 NICU family sessions. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Bryan, TX.

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