My reason WHY? – In-hospital Newborn Photography – Fresh 48 – Photograhper Cortney Jones

I often get asked WHY? do I do what I do. And the better one of “I bet you just love your job?” I do, I really really do. Here’s why…

When my daughter was born I was in such awe of her. She made my whole world make sense in a way I don’t think I would understand without her. She is the most amazing thing I have ever created, my greatest accomplishment along with her three brothers. The story we tell her is that she was more beautiful than snow white, so we had to name her Winter.

This is the very first image ever taken of her,

she is less than 24 hours old and sporting the same sort of hospital blankets I have on in my first image after entering this world. The young woman that came into our hospital room to take her photos quickly fell short of capturing her beauty. The “photographer” laid a generic pink and blue plaid paper down on a hard hospital bassinet, put my daughter on top and snapped with a stationary camera that hung above my baby. My daughter’s in-hospital image is very similar to the one above. I asked the “photographer” if she was studying photography or if she wanted to be a nurse, she answered no to both. I then asked her if she loved babies, she responded with “it’s just a job.” I was heart broken that the young woman cared little for photography and seemingly less for my child.

I started doing in-hospital photography for my friends and family after that. I didn’t know what I was doing yet but I knew because I had studied photography and cared about babies; I could do a better job for them than the old way it had been being done for too many years. Soon I contracted with a hospital in Bountiful Utah. Then, when Lone Peak Hospital in Draper was opening they were asking around for all the greatest things in the hospitals around the area. They wanted to put all the best things at this one hospital for mommas. Me! I was one of the best things in the hospitals. Lone Peak contracted with me before they opened there doors to new mothers and I got to photograph the very first babies born there. I am now in several hospitals along the Wasatch Front and have been  for more than seven years.

I really feel like it is such a wonderful privilege to get to visit with families in this very special time at the hospital. I adore meeting all these new little people and getting to capture what they looked like when they made their parents into mommies and daddies.

Even hospitals I am not contracted with, I visit very often to do in-hospital photography for those that have requested my services. My maternity and newborn photography clients get a free in-hospital session when they book their studio newborn session.

   I still take images with the nostalgic pink and blue hospital blanket. But then we do the rest of the session like this… To book your session please contact Cortney Jones cortney@bouncinbabyphotography.com 801-388-3384

Bonnie Babe – Northern Utah Child Photographer Cortney Jones

Beautiful Bonnie showed off her personality for the camera and the camera loved her right back!! Bonnie is certainly living up to her name with pouty lips, big beautiful eyes and a smile that will light up the room.

I’ve got a big beautiful window in the studio with lots of natural light for capturing these portraits and Bonnie was a perfect subject… Even her outtakes are pretty adorable.

Lots of new additions – Family Photography Salt Lake City

7 children 4 years and younger, they all were amazing. Not one melt down, not one tear shed, not even one pout! I was SOOO impressed. And look at how beautiful the families are!

Not every family has kids, these two are just getting ready to get married.

So cute!

Yay for boys! Only a very lucky few get only boys 🙂

These session was a lot of fun. Each family had a great personality and was great to work with. Thank you for inviting me to capture this stage in your lives.

Gotta love those curls – Ogden's Union Station

Baby girl did such a GREAT job! She was an absolute doll. She really liked holding mom and dad’s hands. It was so cute seeing them walking hand-in-hand. Her curls stayed so perfect I had to ask her mom, how did you do that? She told me “foam rollers.” Definitely tried it with my own girl and it was beautiful. Thanks for a great shoot at historical Ogden’s 25th street Union Station.
