Baby photos

Newborn photos are a favorite tradition at our birthing centers.

Free newborn photo sessions

The day after your baby is born, our photography partner will visit your room. You may choose to take advantage of their service or decline the photo session. The photo session is free. You are not required to purchase images after the photo session.

What to expect

Family members are encouraged to participate in the photos. Your photos will be ready to view within minutes.
