The Tiny Footprints Project is a charitable organization that offers complimentary photo sessions and images to families with newborns in the NICU.
Having a child in the NICU is a very stressful and expensive time for families. These families often miss out on the normal newborn experiences. Documenting this time in the NICU brings a little "normalcy" to parents.
Our volunteers are all professional photographers who donate their time and talents to provide this service to families. There is no specific time requirment as photographers only take sessions if they have the time to do so.
Volunteers are required to submit a portfolio showing consistently well exposed, focused and edited images. It is not necessary for photographers to be "newborn" photographers as sessions are documentary style lifestyle sessions. Photographers must demonstrate an ability to handle low light situations as NICUs are often dimly lit and lighting equipment is not permitted.
