I thought it was a nice service that the hospital had someone to come around and take photos... while they were definitely overpriced at least my husband whipped out his camera at the same time to take similar shots!
Though ... I did buy ONE picture from this shoot. It didn't have the option of being digital so I just have prints, but this is the picture:
It's great having a husband whose job is to take pictures, but then he ends up not being in any of the photos ... this is the only picture we have of the three of us thus far (we took a few others but the lighting was kind of terrible so it doesn't count).
This is one that I didn't buy that the hospital photographer took-- it's so cute! I might have to later on down the road. His cheeks were so big the day after he was born!
After taking pictures, eating hospital food for too long, and unsuccessfully breastfeeding -- it was time to get discharged. We had our car seat inspected and got the all clear from my doctor and the pediatrician to GO HOME. The husband, above, was totally READY and very anxious to get home. We had to introduce the puppies to our new lil guy!
A lot of people, myself included, put a lot of thought into the "going home outfit" for a new baby. I ended up just putting him in this little onesie. Nothing too crazy.
And, one last cute photo from the hospital:
Sigh. Too adorable.
