Simple Steps to Precious Portraits

What to Bring​

Bring any special outfits, props, or blankets you’d like the baby to have in the portraits. If you want mom, dad, siblings, or any other family members to be photographed with the baby, we recommend they wear a solid-colored shirt for the session.

Your Session​

We’ll visit your room the morning after your baby is born to set a time for your photo session, which usually lasts 15-25 minutes on average. Ensure a smooth, stress-free experience by having everyone dressed and the baby fed before the scheduled appointment time.

Your Photos​

Shortly after your session, we’ll return to your room with edited and enhanced photos. You can view the portraits in the comfort of your own room, order keepsakes to be shipped to your home, and share photos instantly via text, email, or social media.
