Nancy Reynolds and June Bug Babies Photography offers new moms the opportunity to have baby’s first professional portraits taken while you’re in the hospital—in the comfort of your room. These treasured portraits are usually taken within the first 24 hours of your newborn’s life. June Bug Babies Photography invites parents and siblings to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. You may schedule the photographs before you go to the hospital or after your baby is born.
June Bug Babies has the photographs online the same day and family and friends, worldwide, can see your newborn within a few hours of his/her birth. There are four very affordable packages from which you can choose to purchase, ranging in price from $29 (2-4x6’s and 8 wallets), to a CD for $125, with all the images taken (approximately 25), and a signed copyright release, so you may print whatever you’d like.
To make these heirloom photographs even more special, consider a few of the suggested tips below:
- Bring a favorite blanket or afghan to use for the photo session. A beautiful blanket can add texture, color and memories to your newborn's photograph.
- Often newborn clothes are too big for your baby, so consider photographing your baby in a diaper and the hospital undershirt, for a sweet and “pure” feel for your newborn’s portrait.
- We invite siblings and dads, if they are available, to be a part of your portraits.
- We suggest a solid black or white top for moms and dads to wear for the session. This allows the focus to be on your baby.
