newborn photos after NICU | baby photos of preemie babies

Newborn photos after NICU stays call for a few precautions, but are definitely possible. A baby’s safety comes first, and it’s important to know if there a baby has any restrictions on poses or activity. If they do, it’s still possible to get beautiful pictures. There are plenty of options! One plus is that parents have had plenty of time to observe and handle their babies. They are experts in their baby’s preferences! Don’t be afraid to tell your photographer what your baby likes and doesn’t like- you know them best.

I come to your home for the newborn session. That’s always a plus with babies who are preemies or have had to spend time in the hospital for other reasons. Staying home means fewer germs to expose them to. I’m always careful to be healthy when photographing babies, and to use hand sanitizer generously. That’s doubly true when doing newborn photos after NICU stays. I worked for years as an RN, so have a good background for working with babies with any health challenges, too.
