When my daughter was born, I think we have like 2 pictures from the hospital stay and neither are much to speak of. We have a bunch of great ones of the baby, but no family shots! I was determined to not have that happen again when my son was born...I brought makeup to the hospital (ha!), and we carefully orchestrated some family photos when my daughter met her new baby brother. My mom was brilliant with the camera, and we used the photo for our birth announcement/thank you cards.
I've been toying with the idea of offering this as a session...let's be honest, I selfishly LOVE visiting new babies! I asked my friends Rebecca and Adam if I could try it out with them. I've gotten such great feedback from these photos when their baby boy was born last week, so I've decided to make it official - Baby's Birth Day Session! I will come to the hospital the first day after you give birth (subject to last minute availability) for a 1/2 hour session. I'll take baby's first portraits, shots with mom and dad, and even siblings meeting for the first time. For $100, you'll get a digital collage of images to share, like the one below, and an online gallery from which to purchase prints a la carte.
