“Second Day” Newborn Sessions

As a mom I know that the first few days after having a baby are lost in a blur and exhaustion. That is why a Second Day Newborn Session is the perfect solution! With a Second Day Session, I will come to your hospital room the Second Day to capture this precious time for you and your family in beautiful professional photography! This will prevent dark, discolored photos when printing and sharing your beautiful memory photos. These sessions are natural and perfect for remembering your baby’s first days. Having a professional photographer will allow for you and your husband to be in photographs together! Let me preserve these once in a lifetime memories for your new family. Make sure you have beautiful photos because you simply cannot get these precious moments back!

My “Second Day” sessions are held within the first 48 hours of your child’s birth – during daylight hours – at the hospital or birth center. My goal is to capture you and your baby while emotions are still high and everything is brand new.

Second Day

How does Second Day Newborn Hospital photography session work ? Here are a couple of important things to know:

1. You need to book your session before your little one arrives. That way your session is on my calendar so I can plan to be available. So book well before your due date!

2. Once your baby arrives, you can call or send me a text as soon as you are able (after getting settled in your room).

3. Siblings and grandparents are welcome and encouraged to participate! What usually works best is for siblings to come about 30 minutes into the session. That way we can get shots of them interacting with their new baby brother or sister.

The session fee begins at $100 for the basic session.  The basic session includes: approximately 60 minutes of on location (hospital) coverage with in a 40 mile radius of my location, Prattville, Alabama.  An addition cost maybe added if it is outside of my 40 mile radius area.

You will receive 15 high-resolution digital files downloaded to Dropbox and rights to print the photographs for personal use.  The images will include a variety of basic poses of you, the family and baby.

Within 48 hours of your photo session, I will post a preview of 5-8 images on my business Facebook. Your images of the photo session will be ready and uploaded to Dropbox with a print release for you within 1 weeks of your session. The photos will be a mixture of black &  whites and color photos.

Why not just have the hospital take pictures?

I work hard to ensure that your photos are quality photos that you will be proud to share with your family and friends.  I offer different poses throughout the Second Day Session.  You  will receive a variety of poses of the family and baby. Most  hospital photographers will only offer one pose for the basic package, which does not include digitals.  I work to capture the emotion of the event, the smiles, the laughter or the love.  With me, there will be no props, lighting, or extensive baby posing. My “Second Day” Newborn session is unique in that I will be able to document all of the emotions and interactions with your new gift from God.
