I am proud to have been selected as the exclusive Phelps Memorial Hospital/Northwell Health trained Newborn Portrait Photographer. During your stay I will provide a photo session in the comfort and privacy of your hospital room.
These creative and artistic photos will tell the life-changing story of your baby’s first extraordinary moments. I aim to capture your joy, emotion and wonder as your baby is cradled in your arms, clasping your finger or stretching his or her tiny toes.
I am generally at Phelps every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and by appointment other days of the week. Please feel free to leave a message for me on my website if you will not be on the post-partum floor on either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
After you deliver, there is no need to make an appointment! I will stop by your room in the morning to see when it will be convenient for you to have your session.
The session takes about 15 - 20 minutes. The photos are mostly of your baby (photographed on pillows at the end of your bed) as well as you with your baby, Dad and your baby, and the three of you together.
The photos are posted on my password protected website after about 24 hours. Various purchase options are available.
Your gallery will contain approximately 30 - 35 edited images from the session.
Prints of all sizes are available through my website starting from $30.00 for a 5 x 7. The JPEG package (which is all the edited JPEGs with the printing rights) can be purchased for $200.00
If you have a blanket, hat or bows you would like to include that would be great, but not necessary! I usually photograph babies naked (with their diaper on) wrapped in a white sheet on a white background. There's nothing cuter than a naked baby! But I would also be happy to incorporate any particular item that you would like. Unless an outfit has significant meaning, I would suggest no clothing; just a blanket, swaddling cloth or cute hat or headbands.
Looking forward to meeting you at Phelps!
It was lovely working with you in the hospital - your manner and style are perfectly suited for putting new parents, and new babies at ease. Thank you again for the experience and priceless end product. ~Elizabeth
