We've partnered with Mom365 to offer our Telfair mom's the opportunity to have professional photography of your baby right in your hospital room.
You can make these photos even more special by following a few of the suggested tips below.
Photography Suggested Tips:
- Bring your favorite baby blanket or afghan from home for use in the photo shoot. A beautiful blanket can add texture, color and memories to your newborn's photo.
- Often newborn clothes are still too big for your baby. Consider photographing in just a diaper with a nice blanket. Even the hospital "onesie" makes a great photo!
- We love to include parents hands in our photos. Wear clear or very neutral nail polish on the day of your shoot. We want your baby to be the focus of the photos.
- Bring a solid black, brown or gray shirt to wear in the photos. These colors look good in both color and black and white and allows us to include you if you wish.
