In-Hospital Newborn Photography
Mount Sinai Beth Israel is working with Gaga Baby Photos to provide professional photography in your hospital room to preserve those first wonderful moments with your newborn.
Since you cannot always predict exactly when your baby will arrive, Gaga Baby does not require appointments. Simply speak with a medical staff member prior to or after delivery and we will reach out to one of our professional baby photographers. Your photographer will come to your hospital room and spend 20 to 30 minutes with you and your family
If you are not satisfied with the photos, there is no obligation to buy. You only have to pay if you choose to keep the photos. Once your session ends, we send all photos to a password-protected online gallery. You can choose to buy the photos before or after you leave the hospital.
