Storytelling Finalist: A Preemie’s Journey

A sequence of photos from The Story of Katie Rose: A Preemie’s Journey has been honored as a Finalist by the jurors in the Storytelling Contest under the auspices of the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards.

One of the rules of the contest was that a sequence of photos had to tell a story without using words. Here are my photos that won, and help to tell the story of Katie Rose and her journey as a preemie.


The Story of Katie Rose: A Preemie's Journey

You can learn more about Katie Rose and her journey as a preemie born very early in her book The Story of Katie Rose: A Preemie’s Journey.

Here’s the book description from the back cover:

The Story of Katie Rose is about a premature baby who was born very early. This book follows her journey as she grows in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and is finally able to go home.

Often siblings of a preemie do not understand why their new baby brother or sister has not come home. The Story of Katie Rose is written for children and is perfect for reading aloud to help explain what is happening. Actual photos of Katie Rose in the NICU accompany the text and will help familiarize children with what they may see in the hospital.

The hospital machines, such as respirators, monitors, and incubators, can sometimes seem scary. These essential machines are explained in simple, easy-to-understand language that describes how they help Katie Rose.

The Story of Katie Rose is not just for siblings of preemies. Parents and grandparents, and anyone who is close to a preemie in the hospital, will find the simple, clear information about medical technology related to prematurity helpful and enlightening.

Follow the inspirational story of Katie Rose’s journey as she grows from a tiny, fragile baby who weighs less than six sticks of butter into a baby who is ready to come home.
