We encourage you to take your own pictures! Be sure to include every little detail of your precious baby (hands, feet, ears, etc). You can never have enough photographs of your baby even if you don't look at them now or even in a year. You will never have to regret not taking more. Ask a nurse or a family member to help so that you can be in them as well.
When you are ready, we can provide information to have some of your images retouched by our volunteer Digital Retouch Artists. Although we did not take the pictures, we will need to get a signed consent form to be able to work on the images. A copy of our consent form can be found at the link below. Please be sure to read through the criteria and submission of images prior to submitting your request.
Once we receive the images please allow up to 12 weeks for our team to complete the retouching.
In addition to the photographs, we encourage you to take your time with your baby, bathe your baby if allowed, do footprints and handprints if available, dress your baby and have alone time with your baby without guests as well. We will be thinking about you and your precious baby during this time! If there is anything else that we can do, please let us know!
