We love babies, and we're excited to be the new hospital newborn photography vendor at Mercy One Medical Center in Waterloo, IA!

This is a service being offered exclusively at Mercy One Medical Center. If you're delivering there, one of us will meet with you after the birth of your baby and offer you a complimentary hospital newborn photography session. We totally understand that having a new baby can be exhausting, and that there is often a steady stream of visitors and hospital staff in and out of your room, so to respect your time, these sessions are approximately 10-15 minutes long.

These are natural, unposed sessions, aimed at documenting all of those tiny newborn details. We welcome and encourage parents, siblings, grandparents, and those special people in your life to be part of the session. We don’t bring any props with us, and we are not doing wrapped or bean bag posing. We will do our best to incorporate an outfit or items you bring with you into the session. Don’t worry if you don’t bring anything with you, we really think babies are great just as they are.

Your photos will be edited and revealed to you the same day as your session, and you will then have the opportunity to purchase any digital images or photographic products.

Not delivering at Mercy One Medical Center but love our hospital newborn photos? No worries! You can still book us for a Fresh 48 session if you are delivering at another location.
