Parents of Preemies Day

parentsofpreemiesFive6teen Photography is a proud sponsor and exhibitor for the second annual Parents of Preemies Day (Boston), March 10, 2013, produced by Graham’s Foundation, the national preemie parent support organization ( The day is designed to recognize the courage and commitment it takes to stay strong and resilient when premature birth turns a family’s world upside down.
