DIY Hospital Newborn Photos

My little brother and his wife welcomed their first child a couple weeks ago, a baby boy named Haris. For months I had been planning his newborn photos from the colors he would wear to the custom puppy dog hat and everything in between. And then everything changed! The weekend she went into labor, Boise, Idaho had yet to have anyone impacted by the current health crisis, yet it was clear all around that this wasn’t going away anytime soon. So, with little choice, I made the excruciating decision to cancel my trip to Minneapolis. And in the past 3 weeks I’ve been cancelling and postponing my clients sessions like crazy, missing out on 1st birthdays, hospital Fresh 48 sessions and newborns.

Newborn photographers aren’t considered essential and of course, this is fair. But that doesn’t stop my heart from hurting that I can’t go photograph these new babies. That their mom’s won’t get those first family photos they were dreaming about throughout their pregnancy.

So in an effort to help my clients I put together a quick list of shots they could try to take themselves. And then today I put it into a format to share with the rest of you. You can Download your FREE GUIDE here. The guide includes professional tips and tricks to deal with difficult hospital lighting, getting the right settings and a detailed shot list with all of my go-to hospital images.

Professional photographers may no longer allowed in most hospitals because of health concerns, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on capturing those Fresh 48 images of your newest family member.

After waiting 6 years after marriage to have children, I decided to invest in professional photos with Glean and Co. when I got pregnant. I always knew I wanted a special newborn photoshoot, but instantly all her life moments became so important to me when I knew that we were becoming a family. I’ll treasure the album and photos forever and am so grateful to Paige and Glean & Co. for the memories. 

"Make time for the pictures.
Invest in the book. You will never regret seeing your memories stitched together"


"We just absolutely love these photos.

I will never be able to put into words how much we appreciate your talent and capturing our little moment!

Thank you!"


"I am blown away by how amazing these photos are.

I am so excited to see the final album and have already changed my phone and computer screens to these new pictures."
