What are you talking about? Hello World? What does that mean?

A Hello World session has quite a few names, it can also be called a “Fresh 48” or “First Look” etc. I started this trend in 2011 when I had a friend come in and professionally photograph Drew meeting his newly born brother, Thomas at the hospital. Okay I lied. I certainly didn’t invent this concept, but those pictures are some of my absolute favorite ever take of my family.

That’s me, my husband, and my son’s meeting for the first time. (Picture taken by Mike Voicheck)

What does a Hello World Session mean for Erica Colvin Photography?

Hello World: session booked in advanced of your child’s birth, that takes place at the location of the birth in the first 48 hours after birth. (Hospital, birth center or home)

Hello World {NICU}: A session taking place in the NICU. These do not have to be within the first 48 hours post birth; they take place during your NICU stay. It’s a way to document this milestone in your child’s life.

What’s the difference between this and the Contracted Hospital Photographer?

Hospital Photography- someone with props on a cart, a camera set on Auto, that stops by at random times during your hospital stay. Typically they only photograph the baby, not you, not siblings, not capturing those initial bonding moments with baby.

Erica Colvin Photography- I become “on call” at the time around your Estimated Due Date. Post (or before if you have an induction or scheduled c-section) birth we set an arranged time during daylight hours for me to come in and photograph your newborn. This can be arranged so that I am capturing when siblings meet one another, when dad is around (unlike when Tommy’s hospital photographer came in), Grandparents meeting their first grandchild, going home from the hospital, etc.

Are these posed photos?

No. I know recently the hospital contracted photographers have been doing poses and props in hospital. You won’t find me bringing props other than perhaps a swaddle blanket. YOU may have a meaningful hat, outfit, etc that you’d like baby to be in while I’m there. But I will not do posed pictures at the hospital. You can find a link to information on my newborn sessions here. This session is not to take place of a newborn session, and booking both will include a discount of $50.

Hello World Session pictures will be in the style of lifestyle photography – unposed, natural or available light. Baby in the bassinet, baby with mom, baby with dad, baby meeting sibings, etc.
