I found a brochure of the service in the hospital where I gave birth. I called and a photographer came, we discussed my options and decided to order a USB with all the images and a free 8X10 for $100. After the shoot which I was not happy about because it felt rushed and I didn’t see anything special about the posing. When all was done I wanted to pay she said she is out of USB and that I should call to make the order!! I had some complication with my recovery so when I called to make the order they said they only have 15 pictures saved because I didn’t call within 24/48 hours and they delete most pictures after that time (which the photographer told me nothing about) so basically I need to pay $100 for 15 pictures that I only liked 4 (they send me a link to see online) I was upset and they said someone will contact me. The photographer called back she was rude and said that she doesn’t even remember me and said that she told me that I have to call within 24 hours when I told her but you said you don’t even remember me she said she tells all her clients that they need to call that is how she knows that she did tell me. Now a month after giving birth i decided to buy the pictures because although I only liked 4 pictures I decided it is worth the $100 because they are the only photos I have of my new baby. So i called and made the order and guess what I had to pay $125 because prices went up. Horrible horrible experience I will make sure to tell everyone I know not to use welcomenewborn.
Newborn portraits that capture the love and joy your new baby brings.
Welcome Newborn contracts with Newton-Wellesley Hospital (and other hospitals) to do newborn photo mini-sessions in the hospital. The photo sessions are free; you pay for any prints or digital images you choose to purchase. I was unhappy with the service and the results, but still give 3 stars because it didn’t cost anything. Cons: * The photographer stopped by our room shortly after my son was born to schedule the photo session, but didn’t have time that day and no photographers were scheduled to be in the following day, and after that we would be discharged. She made it seem like a huge burden to fit us in. * The photo session was very rushed, and considering everything is digital, the photographer didn’t take many shots. There was none of that molding the baby into cute sleepy positions that you see often, just some quick snaps of the baby laying there (she did bring a basket with a pillow in it) and a few with the new parents, which we hadn’t known and prepared for. * Our baby was a little fussy when the photographer arrived and therefore looks cranky in the photos, and there was no waiting for him to be fed or soothed. * The photos were truly on par with iphone snapshots. They look nothing like the photos on the Welcome Newborn website. * Intense sales pressure. The digital images were available to view online pretty quickly, and the photographer gave us about 20 minutes total to decide if we wanted to buy them, checking in every 5-10 minutes to see if we had decided. If we didn’t order immediately, she said, only a smaller selection of the images would be available and at a higher cost. Pros: * As mentioned, there is no cost for the photo session, so it’s pretty low stakes. * We got a coupon code for a free 8×10 print, no add’l purchase needed ( “shipping” is $7) * Prices were reasonable if the images had been good and worth purchasing, $100 for a set of the digital images (ours was 14 images) * A set of the images remains online for a year so you can reconsider and purchase later.
Our son was born in April of 2012 and we had WelcomeNewborn take our baby pictures. We were not impressed with their service as the pictures that were taken were not very professional and the package they delivered to us was not in our opinion worth $199. We decided to print our own pictures but the CD they gave us with the pictures taken contained pictures with such a low resolution that we were not able to get prints on our own. Overall this service was not what we expected from The Birthing Inn as their service was respectable.

Welcome Newborn came to take pictures of our daughter in the hospital in June. The photographer was very sweet, handled our daughter with care and got some great shots. Five months later our daughter looks so different than she did when she was born. I am so happy we have these beautiful pictures of her as a new born!! iphone pictures just don’t do it justice!
Not a good photography experience. The photos I got at the hospital of my newborn, Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia, were so carelessly taken without any attention to the most obvious details and props. The photos were taken in such a hurry that you’d think an amateur had done it. Not worth the money or time.
