I know it's not for everyone, but I personally love the time in hospital following the birth of a baby. It's like the whole world stops and everything is centered around you and this new little being. You can forget about the outside world and focus on bonding with your baby. No cooking meals, no cleaning, no laundry. Before you know it, you're heading out into the real world and it feels like baby's first milestone is reached. It is so important that this time is documented. Whether you hire a professional, or do it yourself, make sure you get images of this very special time. You will never get this moment again. Some important images to take include, baby in the bassinet, baby in the hospital blanket and/or hat, foot bracelets, and close ups of face, feet, and hands. The benefit of hiring a professional is that you can sit back and relax while your photographer does it all, plus you can be in the images too. However, I did my own so it is doable. If you're interested in having me document this fleeting time for you, let's chat.
