Kansas City photographer Jessica Strom has made a career of capturing the first year of a baby’s life in photos, but what she is getting most attention for these days is her work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Strom donates her time in local NICUs taking portraits of babies who don’t get to go home right away – an invaluable gift to parents during often stressful times. An Overland Park Regional Medical Center NICU family, as well as Strom, were featured on a Today show segment highlighting her work and the families she touches. Watch here.
