What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag for Baby | Sarasota Newborn Photographer
Whether you are having a professional photographer come in to take Fresh 48 photos or not, here are four items you should bring with you to the hospital:
1. A nice robe.
Having a cute robe for Fresh 48 photos will make you feel pretty and pulled together rather than wearing that ugly hospital gown. It's a nice coverup to keep you comfy and warm and still easy enough to nurse.
2. Don't forget Dad. Pack a plain shirt for him.
I don't think you'll want photos with him wearing an old grungy t-shirt that he was wearing running out of the house when you said it was time to go to the hospital. Having a nice, plain shirt will do the trick and not be distracting.
3. Your cell phone or better yet, if you have your own DSLR camera.
Even if you are having Fresh 48 photos taken by a professional, it's great to have your own camera in order to capture lots of photos of your baby. Hand the camera off to your husband and let him take some of you and the baby and vice versa. You can even ask your nurse to take a few of all of you.
4. Last, but not least, bring an outfit for your baby.
Choose a favorite outfit you may have received at your baby shower to bring baby home in. This outfit can also be used for your Fresh 48 photos.
If you are having a baby soon, let's chat. I would love the opportunity to take your Fresh 48 photos in the hospital or place of birth. Because of Covid, some hospitals may not allow outsiders to come in yet. If that's the case, we can just take some as soon as you come home. There's nothing like capturing those newborn moments because they grow way too fast.
