Bella Baby Photography
Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) offers experienced photographers from Bella Baby Photography at the hospital to capture your baby's first photograph with a natural, artistic style. Your professional mini photo shoot can take place right in the comfort of your hospital room.
Bella Baby photographers capture the beauty of your baby by using natural window light, experienced photographers and professional grade SLR digital cameras.
Photos are posted to an online, custom slideshow for you to view shortly after your session. This is a great way to share the birth of your baby with family and friends.
Online viewing and ordering is password protected and only available to those with whom you choose to share your password. Photos will be available for 14 days after they are taken.
Tips for a Great Photo Shoot
- Babies look beautiful when being held in their parents' arms or cuddled in one of their own baby blankets. Bring your favorite baby blanket or afghan from home for use in the photo shoot. A beautiful blanket can add texture, color and memories to your newborn's photo.
- We love to include the mom or dad's hands in our photos. Wear clear or neutral polish on the day of your shoot. We want your baby to be the focus of the photos.
- Bring a solid black, brown or gray shirt for you to wear in photos. We may photograph your baby in your arms. These colors look great in both color and black and white prints.
- Friends and family are welcome to stay to view this special rite of passage.
