First 48 – In Hospital Newborn Session Details & Pricing

After my son was born I was so thankful I had the resources to capture his first full day.  Those in-hospital photos are still some of my favorites, even though he has had the “mama-ratzi” on his tail ever since.  When I close my eyes and picture our time in the hospital I can imagine him snuggled in his little basinet, in our arms, or stretching and yawning because of those photos.  He changed so much even after a week, that I am so grateful to have those memories. This session is meant to provide you those same moments.

This is a very informal session to capture you as you add the newest member to your family.  We will photograph baby on their own in their bassinet or on the bed, each of you holding baby, and all of you together.  If family happens to be visiting, we will capture as much as we are able.

I will bring a few muslin swaddles with me to create clean white spaces to shoot timeless images in both color and black & white, but beyond the swaddling, this session is meant to be as natural as possible.  This is a time to connect with your newborn and capture all of the emotion that entails.  When I first started shooting I realized how many fathers smiled a bit broader or shed a few tears during these photos, and I realized how truly powerful they are.

Capture your baby’s first days in this world with a “First 48 Session“. This session will take place generally during the first “full” day after birth in the hospital or birthing center.

The session includes:

– a 30 minute to 1 hour session in hospital

– between 15-25 photographs in both color and B&W with the rights to reproduce

– a “sneak-peek” within 24 hours of your session to share with friends and family

– $25 print credit to use on any item of your choosing from your print gallery (can also be applied as a discount credit toward another session/package)
