The morning after your delivery, one of our photographers will set up an appointment with you to take baby's first official photograph for free. Portraits can be seen at the time the photographs are taken, allowing you to choose your favorites on a full screen monitor from the comfort of your bed.
You'll also have the opportunity to order creative birth announcements, photo packages, and new baby keepsakes for your whole family. And, you can create a secure, personalized Web page for your baby. The Web page is password-protected, and you can share it with your friends and family easily.
