Your hospital bag … are you packed yet?  I recently asked on my Facebook and Instagram pages: What unnecessary item are you SO glad you packed?

The responses were great and I thought they are worth sharing for those mamas who are still making their hospital bag list.

  • Games (small easy to pack like Phase 10, Bananagrams, and cards)
  • Season of The Office or Friends
  • Chapstick
  • Snacks
  • Comfy Socks
  • Yoga Pants
  • Makeup
  • Pillow
  • Pajamas
  • Boppy Pillow
  • Digital Frame with photos of sibling
  • Essential Oil Diffuser with Lavender Oil
  • Depends Underwear
  • App that keeps track of diapers and feedings

One last item that you MUST pack in your bag:  Katie Anderson Photography’s business card!! ; )  Most mamas book their newborn session during their second trimester.  I mark your due date on my calendar and then once baby is born you’ll want to have my email or phone number handy to let me know as soon as you’re able that baby was born.  We then firm up the newborn session date, aiming to have the session take place 5-10 days after birth.

If you are due in the coming months please, send me an email!  Let me know your due date and I’ll send over more information on how the booking process works and pricing.  I look forward to hearing from you!

What to pack in your hospital bagThis is sweet baby Harper.  Her mama had my number extra handy because she booked a Fresh48 session!  Which means I came to the hospital the day after she was born and took photos of her before they even left for the hospital.  I’ll be posting her studio newborn session very soon!

To be invited into the room so soon after a baby has been born is truly a gift.  Memories of the time spent at the hospital when our girls were first born always wash afresh over me.  I want to capture every last detail of this time for your family from the peach fuzz on your baby’s skin to the hospital bracelet around his ankle.

This is baby Charlie.  Just born.  Just delivered earthside.  I was so touched by what his mama had to say about my time with them:

Katie has such a way with babies (and their parents)! She did a Fresh48 session for us and made us feel so comfortable. The photographs are amazing and speak for themselves. She has a wonderful eye and we would love to work with her again. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! — Jesse in Salem, OR
