Every year I try to start a new Program to Benefit families in need and this year I have decided to start a program for families with babies in the NICU. I do a lot of newborn photography in my studio and they are always the treasured images that I’m emailed about through out the year and I know when children have to stay in the hospital they are unable to have those first week or two pictures that my clients treasure so much. So this year I will bring that service to you. I have listed all the info below and how to apply. I will take as many of these sessions as I can a month and will be recruiting some other local photographers to help in the future if I fill up.
No one ever anticipates that their unborn child may have to spend time in the NICU after birth. Whatever the reason maybe their stories and journeys start there and this is a special time for any new parent but especially for these families. Their journey will be that of many emotions… sadness, confusion, hope, celebration, unfortunately sometimes even grief. but throughout this journey and no matter the out come this session will be cherished always as the place you started and how far you have come and also the memories of this time both good and bad, but always a treasured keepsake.
What is provided in a NICU session?
Families receive a complementary NICU session, using available light in each room also, 25 gifted images digital format with print release. Upon request an online viewing gallery for people who are unable to visit to be able to view the pictures.
When do I do the session?
Anytime you may choose to have the session done as soon as you baby is in the NICU or you may choose to wait closer to your dismissal date. we cater this to each families needs as well as doctors wishes.
What is the cost?
There are no fees for our services. we simply hope to see you in the future but either way we are there to capture these moments for you.
How do I know if I qualify?
There are absolutely NO pre-qualifications or fees for the services provided. If you or a friend or family member would like to apply just fill out this form and I will get back with you. I do limit the number of sessions I take a month but anytime I can take a session I will or I will help you find another photographer in the area.
What if my baby has tubes and wires?
Most NICU babies do…..DO NOT let this discourage you from having a session! we will not disconnect anything, we can discuss weather your baby can be moved or not, Held or not. we completely work within Doctors guidelines and what you are comfortable with also.
How long until I see my pictures?
usually 2-3 weeks but can be sooner if needed under certain circumstances.

I will travel to other hospitals but these are the closest to me.
