I know some hospitals have photographers for this sort of thing. See that the baby still has the wrist band on?

Not something I’d do, but I know some hospitals offer photoshoots for newborns.

Well, I think putting all baby’s tombstone data on the internet isn’t a good idea (full name and DOB), but the pictures are pretty cute.  We’ll probably do a photoshoot, but keep the photos to ourselves and close friends and family.

Yeah, I know some people who have done this. But only a few, thank god. I do think it’s a little weird, but it’s mostly for family. I’m sure the grandparents eat it up.

I think it’s nice – for immediate family and friends. 

I don’t see a reason to give this child NO privacy from the time they are born.    I know that lots of people live their lives on facebook –  but I think that is a decision best made by each individual, and not by default because the parents have been sharing everything since the moment of birth with the world.

@Hyperventilate:  Yes, some hospitals do that. I used to be one of those photographers during college…..

If you google “Newborn hospital photography” you’ll see an overwhelming amount of people who do just this.

I agree with OP, sounds a little cray cray crazy to me

Newborn photography is a HUGE business.  So this doesn’t surprise me at all.

The only thing that really surprised me was the obvious turn-around time of this project! That’s just plain impressive =)

I don’t know that if right after labor I would want to be doing this. I think I would want to leave my LO alone to adjust and sleep while I could. I am not really a fan of this idea. I know we all want cute newborn pictures but jeeze…also I’m not digging the spelling of the name.

Well, I know that most newborn photographers want to schedule the shoot for within the first 10 days of life because that is when the babies are most sleepy and… bendy?

Also, I am not surprised at all with the turn around time. I didn’t see the link but just based on the sheer number of engagement photos my photog got in 2-3 hours… I’m sure they could have taken plenty of photos in 1-2 hours and then a few more hours for editing? The entire project could probably be finished in half a day.

I have no idea what that link was like. My my step mom just had a baby in February and they had a photoshoot at the hospital the day after he was born. Like with full on props and poses and everything.
