Frisco Newborn Hospital Photographer Erica Grandin Photography: Why You Need a Newborn Hospital Photo Session

As a Frisco newborn hospital photographer, I know that there are many things to organize and plan for when you’re expecting. It’s very likely that you’ve already thought about your classic newborn photos, but don’t sleep on your hospital photo session! Dubbed a First 48 session, these intimate photo sessions take place in your hospital room just after your baby’s arrival, in those precious first 48 hours of life.

Perhaps you’re thinking: I already scheduled my in-home newborn session. Why do I need a First 48 session with a Frisco Newborn Hospital Photographer?

There are so many reasons!

While you’re still in the hospital, you’re in your own little bubble with your new baby. Without overstating it, it’s a truly monumental moment in your life and in the life of your family. You’re meeting your newest family member and your life has just changed – for the better – forever. A First 48 session ensures that these feelings will be captured in photographs so you’ll always remember them. 

Your baby will never be this small again. While you’re spending the hours staring at those ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes, let your favorite Frisco newborn hospital photographer come in to preserve it for you. As a mom of three, I can tell you from experience that there’s nothing you’ll want to remember more than meeting your baby for the first time, and those precious first days together.

Preparing for a Frisco newborn hospital session is also quite simple. In fact, we give most of the work to dad to tidy up the room and leave you to relax in your hospital bed with baby. You need only to wear something simple and comfortable – buttoned pajamas or a pretty robe will do – and alert the nurses about your photographer’s arrival. And then you leave the rest to me.

I want to assure you, this session should be the least stressful photos of your life. I recently gave birth to my own baby and had planned to take hospital photos. After delivery, I started passing blood clots and had a very stressful and scary experience. I was so worried about getting pictures in the hospital that I wasn’t letting myself properly recover and rest while in the hospital. I promise that as your photographer I will do everything I can to be flexible and help you enjoy this experience. The last thing I want you to do is to feel stressed out!
