Copper'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.

“He (Cooper) was born by emergency C-section 10 weeks early due to me having preeclampsia and my placenta abruption. When they took him he wasn't breathing, he was blue and his heart rate was only 10bpm. They brought him back to life and is now my happy little miracle baby. He had a grade 3 brain bleed, developed hydrocephalus and required brain surgery to have a shunt placed. It's been a long road and still a long road ahead, but he is a strong little fighter!”

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

A Note From Brian:
"Cooper did great at his shoot! I don’t think I ever quite won him over, so he was a little frowny with me the whole time! He had a great time rocking in the little chair I brought, but promptly took a nose-dive after building up a bit too much momentum! Aside from that minor scare, he was a trooper throughout the rest of the shoot! : )"

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 College Station, TX.

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