Newborn Photos

The Mother Baby Center is proud to partner with First Day Photo to offer a newborn photo session for you and your family at no cost to you.

During your stay at The Mother Baby Center, you will be visited by a professional photographer from First Day Photo and offered a portrait session for your baby. If you would like a session, it is performed right in your room at a convenient time for you.

Every family receives a streaming Virtual Birth Announcement video that you can share online with your friends and family. If you would like to own your photographs, professional prints and high-resolution digital files (including unlimited self-printing rights) are available for purchase. 

The First Day Photo photographer will be able to answer any questions about your photo session and purchasing any prints or images. You can also visit to learn more. 


Taking a few minutes to pre-register for your upcoming stay at The Mother Baby Center will help decrease the stress of rushing to the hospital while in labor.
