Hospital newborn photos have become just as important as your newborn session and I love that these sessions are so popular! What is a First 48 session and why do you absolutely need one? Find all the details in this blog post!
2021 Update: Many hospitals have changed Covid visitor policies and are now allowing 2 visitors per room. This means Hospital Newborn Photos aka First 48 Sessions are back for 2021!
Hospital newborn photos are the most amazing way to capture your brand-new baby. I will come to your hospital room within the first 48 hours of baby’s arrival for 30 minutes of capturing your baby’s details, newness and the emotion that comes with those first few hours with your baby.
This is not about looking perfect with your hair and makeup done. We want the reality and beauty of postpartum and the immediate joy that comes with meeting your baby. Your baby will literally never be this small again. Hospital newborn photos capture the realness and rawness of the first few hours with your baby.
So how do the logistics of this work? If you are having a c-section, I will reserve the morning after your c-section for your photos. I generally shoot to arrive at the hospital about 24 hours after baby’s birth. If you are having a vaginal birth, I will note your due date on my calendar but we will stay in close communication during the last weeks of your pregnancy so you can keep me updated on your progress. I stay super flexible for hospital newborn photos (aka First 48 Sessions) because we all know we can’t control baby’s arrival date!
If for some reason I am unable to make it to the hospital due to unavoidable circumstances, your First 48 Session deposit will be applied to a newborn session with Erica Grandin Photography.
