Captured within the first 48 hours of life, these images perfectly document some of your baby’s first moments and your first hours as a new family! Your newborn hospital photography session will be about 15 minutes long and will include an in-room image reveal shortly after your session. A $50 deposit is due before your session and will be applied to your order after you’ve reviewed your images.

Frequently Asked Questions


When should we contact you for a session?

Send us a message any time during your pregnancy! Let your nurses know you are interested in a hospital photography session upon your admission! If you forget, send us a message early in your baby's hospital stay - the sooner after birth, the better. You will be thankful later to have those images from when they were their tiniest.

When is there a photographer at the hospital?

Amanda is at the St. Cloud hospital on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays by request only. She arrives around 11:00 and leaves after all new families have been photographed.

How long will my session take?

Session time varies between families and babies, but generally you can expect about 15 minutes of photography time. Expect less time without parent images and more time for multiples. Trust us, this is enough time and you won't feel rushed.

What should the baby wear?

Solid colored onesies are always favorable, but patterns can be fun too! We recommend undressing your baby down to a diaper if not for the whole session, for the second half. 

What should the parents wear?

We recommend wearing a soft, muted color. Try to avoid distracting patterns and words or logos on your clothes. Choose cream or light grey instead of white and black. A soft pattern is OK, too! These are only recommendations and clothing is completely up to you! Moms will often choose a robe or maxi dress. A hospital gown is quite authentic as well.

Can other family members be included in these photos?

Siblings and parents are welcome to join in!

How long will it take to receive our images?

We process and present your images within 24 hours.

How do we receive digital images?

We will send you a password protected link to an online gallery via e-mail. You will follow the link to download your images.  Upon download of the images, a print release will display. If you need a secondary release, please contact us. When you take your images to be printed, make sure that color management is OFF. 

Do you offer other products?

We offer custom albums. Your album includes all of your images. Ask Amanda to see a sample of an album when she visits your room! Please allow two weeks for delivery of your album.
