Mercy offers no-obligation newborn photography sessions from professional photography group Bella Baby Photography. Due to patient privacy regulations, no other photographers are allowed in the unit without permission. If you would like to hire a separate photography company to take photos in your unit, please consult with your nursing staff during your stay.
These newborn photo sessions are typically taken the day you go home and are made available online for review and purchase. These photos are only available for 14 days after your session for purchase.
What to bring for a newborn photoshoot
- A favorite baby blanket from home (solid colors work best)
- A solid color shirt to wear while holding baby (black, brown or dark grey work best)
- Any outfit or accessories for your little one to wear
