We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints will help families heal and remember how strong they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.
A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOHAMMED AND ZIYAD'S FAMILY
Thanks to God I knew I was going to have my babies at 34 weeks, so I was mentally prepared for the hard time we were going to have. Though I had a little breakdown two weeks after labor because they didn't progress in their weight gain as the doctor had hoped, I tried to remind myself that it's just a matter of time and everything is going to go as we wished. And that's what happened at day 18; they reached the target weight and it was the happiest day when we took them home.
Mohammed and Ziyad's photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Brian C. Parks.
A Note From Brian:
Mohammed and Ziyad did great for their first big photo shoot. It was hotter than I was expecting (it always is!), but they were troopers (as were Mom and Dad!). Three months old and already so much personality. The whole family was incredibly photogenic, so we made sure to get some group shots with everyone. : )

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 600 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.
