Newborn Twin Photo Session | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I know I have been blogging lots of seniors lately, as it’s that season, but I had to take a minute to get these super sweet twins up here! First of all, as some of you know,  on Black Friday this past year, my  then 17 year old son was in a terrible car accident. His first responder team came to visit him in the hospital, and while there, they said they have never come up on an wreck like that and been able to visit the person in the crash after (as in most don’t survive that sort of crash) I am SO SO incredibly thankful for that team, and all of the nurses and doctors who cared for my son and got him back to where he is today (which is WONDERFUL and Normal!)  So, imagine my surprise when the daddy of these precious littles walks in and happens to be one of the men on the first responder team that saved my son’s life <3  Yes, they got a discount! haha And yes, I do always offer a first responder and military discount. You just have to ask!  Now who’s ready to check out all of this adorableness?

Hancock Health Newborn Photos- Fresh 48 and present parents

This week I’m taking a quick break from posting my seniors to talk a little more about my newborns! I have been up at Hancock Health for 2 months now, and I am having a blast! I just love getting to snuggle on all the new babies. Seriously, BEST.JOB.EVER.  Here’s the thing. I am getting a lot of new mommas and dads too, who are opting not to be in the photos because they “Don’t look good enough” Don’t be that person! Seriously, you just had a baby! No one expects you to look like a super model. You can’t get these memories back. Not everyone has to see them, but you and your little one will be SO glad you’re in the photos someday! If you’re breast feeding (or not!) we can take feeding photos, we can just take photos of you holding your little one, we can use your hands, have you in the background kind of blurred out etc … but be present! You won’t regret it! I have found in the past weeks as I’ve pushed it just a tiny bit more, when I look at the galleries, guess which photos moms and dads are favoriting? You got it! The ones they are in! These aren’t meant to be glamour shots! These are REAL LIFE. These are minutes and memories that will fade very quickly. These photos will be all you have left as your baby grows and changes in the weeks and months to come. So, moms and dads, even if you haven’t showered or put on makeup or brushed your hair … it’s ok. Let’s just show that sweet baby how in love you were from the very first moment. 🙂

Hancock Health Newborn Photographer | Hospital Newborn Photos

I have some super exciting news about my newborn photography! (Don’t worry, I’m still doing senior photos full time!)  I am still doing in studio newborn sessions as well, however, I was recently asked to be the newborn photographer with Hancock Health, and I decided that it would be an awesome opportunity! Who doesn’t want to hang around babies every day? lol! Ok, well maybe not everyone does, but it’s my dream job! So here’s the deal! If you are delivering at Hancock, you get a free new arrival session with me! The best part? It’s IN your hospital room. You don’t have to go anywhere or do anything! I come right to you! I call in or come up to the hospital Mon-Fri to check in and see if patients would like to have their new arrival session. On the weekends and holidays, the nurses will give you my brochure and you can send me a text so I can work out a time with you! It’s that simple! Also, if you want to schedule your time with me so that you can involve siblings or grandparents, you can text or call me as well. 317-319-6045.

So what is this exactly? I come in and do a mini fresh 48 style shoot (about 15 minutes), then I will ask if you’d like a blanket or basket posed shot at the end. The hospital will put an announcement in the newspaper for you (for free) if you’d like, and I will send you a digital birth announcement for free as well! Be sure to check out the sample announcements in this post! I will also create a gallery with all of the photos that I take and you will be able to view and order from it for 2 weeks. This session does not replace a full newborn session, but it is so great to have those first moments! As a momma of 4, I know how quickly that hospital look disappears and just how hard it is to remember it. I so wish I had these photos of my babies! (Especially right now as I’m sitting here trying to post a new blog and listening to them scream at each other! ha!) Soak it all in! It goes entirely too fast!

Another perk to delivering at Hancock Health is, if you would like a FULL newborn session with Shawna Marie Photography, you can have it at 50% off the session fee! That’s a $100 savings! All you have to do is book while you are pregnant or still in the hospital!

Here is the link to the hospital blog announcing me as their photographer https://www.hancockregionalhospital.org/2018/06/babys-first-photos/

And you can check out one of my digital announcements below! If you have any questions about how this works, don’t hesitate to contact me! You can email shawna@shawnamariephotography.com or call/text 317-319-6045!
