NICU Grad Session: Teagan

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. 


Teagan is the 4th NICU journey our family has faced. Thus far she may also be the easiest. After taking Makena injections weekly for 4 months we made it to our goal of 36 weeks. After arriving to our goal Teagan was delivered by c-section she came out with the sweetest and strongest cry all in one. Shortly after her breathing declined. Teagan is currently on CPAP and getting the support she needs. We have hopes of a short NICU stay but know that the journey of the NICU never goes as expected but rather by Gods design.


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

A Note From Brian: 

Teagan did such a great job and was such a doll! Despite the rainy weather, we managed to stay (mostly) dry under a gazebo. She was a little hesitant at first with her cake, but mom was able to show her why it’s called a smash cake. I think she slowly worked her way through most of the cake by the end of the shoot!

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.
